The Best Burrito in Wimbledon

I love a burrito. That's no secret. When I worked in Richmond, Whole Foods was my burrito of choice but sadly they haven't reached Wimbledon yet. That said, Wimbledon has plenty to offer. I headed down to just a couple to find the best one for you guys. Just doing a public service really....

Wahaca was my first port of call, having been to the one on Charlotte Street. The creation of Masterchef winner Thomasina Miers, it really changed the landscape of mexican food from soggy nachos with plastic cheese to fresh, vibrant and flavoursome food. It's always reliable. Perfect food and served quickly too - ideal if you want to have a sit down lunch then get back to the office within an hour.
Cost: £6.95

Just across the road from Wahaca is Tortilla. Seemingly unassuming on the outside I was pleasantly surprised by the inside. Retro posters on the wall that reminded me of my early teens and an inviting burrito bar. Yes, there was quite a long queue but it went down quickly and what was to come was definitely worth the wait. You can choose from chicken, beef, pork or veggies and all manner of toppings, rice, beans, peppers and onions. And (so the napkin told me) all their burritos have less fat and calories than most high street sandwiches. We settled down at a table inside and tucked in.
Cost: £5.00 (+70p for guacamole)

Walk up towards Wimbledon village and you come across Chipotle. Bit fancier from the outside, possibly with not much reason to be. Plainer, on the whole, than Tortilla and not that inviting to sit inside, Chipotle still does a damn tasty burrito (even if it does fall apart near the bottom).
Cost: £6.95 (+£1.40 for guacamole)
