Death by Burrito is run by the Rebel Dining Society, a creative catering company from east London, and some of the burrito and taco fillings are a lot more adventurous than the standard meat/rice/beans/guacamole combos – soy-braised pork with smoked kim-chi, lobster, quinoa with roasted vegetables. There are no starters but a few 'big bites' (including a cheeseburger with candied bacon and jalapeño), a few sides, and a single pudding in the form of ancho chilli ice cream sundae.
There’s not a tequila sunrise or frozen margarita in sight. Instead, the bartenders craft the likes of a Slushed & Rosie: añejo tequila, elderflower-infused vermouth, Campari, Gancia Rosso.
We liked the Shoreditch venue a lot. If burritos and imaginative cocktails fill you with joy, a trip to Hoxton might be a very good idea.
