Death By Burrito
Brought to you by the Rebel Dining Society’s Shay Ola and Sipstir’s Ryan Chetiyawarda.
Death By Burrito is an exciting contemporary Mexican grill and cocktail bar concept located at the renowned Catch bar in the heart of Shoreditch.
I was lucky enough to attend a preview night last week for the opening of Death By Burritos. I have to say I couldn’t help but be excited to taste and experience what lay ahead of me as I had overheard the concept evolve from start to finish at Protein Bar on Hewett St.
I had booked ahead for 4 persons, but that 4 magically jumped to 6 very quickly when they heard the concept. Mexican diner food served along side tequila based cocktails. The Catch staff eagerly welcomed us and accommodated our numbers at ease. Greeted with a round of Jose Cuervo tequila indicating the beginning of a good time. I suggest everyone selecting one of each cocktail as you can share them in order to quickly discover your preferred beverage. Trust me when I say, none will disappoint as all have been cleverly concepted & crafted by Ryan Chetiyawarda.
Keeping in mind this is not a restaurant but more of a diner experience, the waiting staff will indicate with a personable introduction to the dining style of serving. There will be no breakdown between “Starters” & “Mains”, as they see dining as a social gathering, and wish for the table to fill up with food as it is ready. This kind of food is best shared.
As we had 6 people to order we managed to order one of everything, every main dish comes with a side of fresh guacamole with baked blue tortilla chips. Regarding the mains you get you choose from Burrito or Taco with a selection of six different meats. Vegetarian’s need not worry as all are catered for.
I ordered the crab cakes and mole smoked short rib, as I was intrigued by the smoking process which took 12 hours, using oak and cocoa nips which gave it a deep rich sweet flavour, balanced with just the right amount of spice. The ingredients are fresh, the service is fast, the drinks are fun and the space is fitting. This is a welcome addition to the Shoreditch food & beverage offering. If you enjoy good food and friends this is the ideal place to start your night off with a bang.
I strongly advice all who have a craving for Mexican food to check this out.
