Burrito, Mexican, Toronto


234 Wellington Street West, Toronto

Cost: $8-15


My friend who’d just moved to Toronto from Calgary treated me for lunch at this place; I’d heard many good things about the food, so I was excited to try it out.

Let me first say though, that I have yet to find a really tasty burrito. Burrito Boyz failed to impress. After three tries and various combinations, it still hasn’t wowed. I’m still wondering what the fuss is about. But I digress.

Back to Quesadas…

A narrow space on the corner of  Wellington and John which outlines their ordering procedure on the far end of the wall prior to the assembly of burritos.

I ordered a small spicy chipotle chicken (hot) ($5.35) which claimed to be “tender chicken marinated in our own spicy chipotle heat”.  I must confide…there was no heat in this whatsoever.

The hot sauce helped some…but  I still wanted the flavour to come from within the burrito.  Is that too much to ask?  Thank goodness for sauces!

My friend ordred the Chile-lime shrimp, “burrito in the buff” which is the burrito minus the tortilla.  AKA, a salad.

And a Tango Mango Odwalla drink:

Fully packed during lunch, the burritos must be impressing some people.  My quest for a tasty burrito however, continues…

  1. The Freshwater Grill at the TD Foodcourt (King St) has the best burritos, imho. I always get the vegetarian burrito bowl. Very flavourful and VERY fresh and the hot sauce is REALLY hot.

    PS. That friend would like to feed you again.

    • Hi Broom! Man, I love that you and TG have good taste in food! Will definitely check out Freshwater next time I’m in that area. Best burrito, you say? Well, as long as the hot sauce is hot. Let’s do some eats in your neighbourhood!

      P.S I just googled it – is it Freshwest Grill?
