A little while ago I had a day of press previews in London during which I met my friend Nicole for a much-needed catch up and dinner. She took me to this awesome little burritos and margaritas place called Benitos Hat, just off Oxford Circus.
I friggin love Mexican food – it’s so comforting with a spicy kick, melting cheese and zesty freshness from citrus. As far as burritos go they are perfect – fun to say (with a Mexican accent of course), filled and fat with filling, and easy to eat on the go! Benitos Hat is all about the famous burrito, in fact it reminded me somewhat of a Subway system where you pick you burrito filling, salad, sauces and what goes with it.

I was a newbie at this so I kind of just went for EVERYTHING – I had a pulled pork burrito with rice, beans, all of the salad, sour cream and hot salsa. The burritos come with crunchy warm nachos and of course as a drink we had to have margaritas – especially as everyday Benitos Hat have Happy Hour from 5pm – 7pm (margaritas are 2-4-1!!).
I so enjoyed my burrito, which at one point felt like it was never ending – the super soft skin, filled with juicy pulled pork and crunchy fresh salad were slathered in hot salsa and cool sour cream… It was a heavenly mess. Scoop up some of your filling with the nachos for a crunchy bite.

The joint itself is pretty compact but cosy and inviting – it’s the perfect fast food stop to refuel, catch up with friends and down a margarita. Or any other drink of your choice! With sounds of Southern America in the background, get tucked away in one of the corners of Benitos Hat to escape the hustle and bustle of London, and enjoy a taste of Mexico.
