A micro-Mexican retreat from the whirling station outside

With walls lined with shots of mariachi men strumming guitars, cacti baking in the sun and snow-capped mountains peaking over Mexico at dusk, pulling up a wall-facing stool here makes a sound retreat from whirling Euston station outside.

On our visit we opted for the very reasonably priced veg burrito (£5.99). Heading to the counter, we were slightly taken aback by the fact that the friendly staff had to weigh every ingredient so as not to overload the burritos – a strange way of ensuring every penny’s worth and reminder that we’re definitely dining in corporate London and not a chirpy burrito-vendor in Mexico City.

Armed with our precisely packed pouch, we headed to a photo–covered perch and unpeeled the foil to find a doughy wrap with a slight crunch at its edges. Inside, chunks of tender aubergine settled alongside slithers of soft pepper, jewels of sweetcorn and pieces of courgette, all soaking into a hefty bed of rice. Joined by a scattering of cheddar and doused in a fairly fiery sauce, the burrito proved to be a substantial lunchtime warmer as the winds howled beyond.
