Budgie’s Burritos

My barber is in the area so I finally dropped into Budgies Burritos. They specialize in vegetarian burritos. They’re located right beside Gene Coffee Bar.

    We dropped in on a Thursday for lunch (around 12:30pm) and it was busy. While were there, they went through over 30 orders! There’s half a dozen seats to people watch but more seating downstairs and a couple benches outside as well.

    The menu consists of burritos, nachos, tacos, tortilla soup and drinks.

    There’s three sauces by the soda fountain station; red (very very hot), green (pretty hot) and chili paste (medium at best).

    The flavours are mute/mundane; it needs one of the sauces to give it some oomph.

    The burrito bowl looked like the tastier option.

    The taco was pretty unmemorable other than they go ham on the sour cream.

    BB is popular because it’s quick, affordable and filling. Their offerings didn’t blow me away.
