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.


    Sign outside.


    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).




    Closeups of the green and chili paste. Not much taste to either.

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


    The burrito bowl looked like the tastier option.

    RIP taco ($3.75)
    DSC02990Tofurkey sausage, rice, cheese, sour cream, salsa and lettuce (we opted for the red cabbage).


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

    Mulita ($4.00)
    DSC029896″ corn tortilla filled with cheese, rice, refried pinto beans, pico de galllo, sour cream and lettuce. This is described as a mix between a taco and quesadilla. My favourite thing out of everything we ordered. Hefty and I liked the mix of ingredients.


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