This is the newest outpost of Zapatista Burrito Bar. It's great to have one close to the central railway station. At the other location, I used to always get the salad with chicken on it, but this time I went for broke and got a burrito and it was delicious! Seriously, unless you're a boring health-weirdo, spring for the burrito, you'll really appreciate all the ingredients and the taste a lot more. The burrito comes with coriander and lime rice, lettuce, choice of filling (I went with chicken, it's yummy), beans (spicy or mild - I like the spicy black beans), salsa (all are good, I liked medium), and cheese or sour cream (cheese FTW.) I also got some sliced raw peppers in mine last time and I don't think they charged me for them. They have cool special fillings sometimes, like "filling of the month" - one was an Asian-flavored beef that was really nice, last time I went in they had chorizo and peppers which sounds pretty amazing. Service is quick, staff is friendly, prices are cheap, and you get a tasty burrito. Mexican food doesn't really exist around here, so for any homesick expats who miss Chipotle, this is your best bet - and honestly, it's not that far off!
