I’ve always been a huge fan of Boojum in Belfast, but a while ago, a friend and colleague suggested trying out Kurrito’s curry burritos. I’m a little sceptical of fusion flavours because they can be anywhere between amazeballs (Wild Ginger in Vanuatu comes to mind) and horrendous (clearly, I’ve erased those from my memory), but I decided to try out Kurrito with an open mind.
I ordered: A “salan” (chicken) burrito with mint chutney and a bunch of fillings. This, with a drink, came down to £5.
Quality: The food was fresh and well-prepared, and the chicken was indeed quite succulent. However, I felt the meal would’ve been better separate than together, and in the case of the one Kurrito I had, I didn’t think the fusion was successful. I still ate and liked parts of my meal, but the combination tasted peculiar throughout. It was quite a shame because I love both curries and burritos—just not in the Kurrito way, it seems.
Value: The £5 deal for burrito and drink is very well worth it. I couldn’t finish my burrito (though I tried!), and took the rest home for a light meal the next day (which I actually enjoyed more, perhaps because the flavours had melded together better).
Atmosphere: It was pretty quiet when we went, though I’m not a fan of the seats (this will probably be a recurring theme). It was basically a typical fast-food place.
Service: The servers were friendly, laid-back, and didn’t mind me taking photos while they worked—always a plus! Very pleased on the service front.
Dietary: I’m not sure if their vegetarian options are vegan, but you can definitely go gluten-free here with a “bowl”.
Other notables: The £5 deal only applies to burritos, but the vegetarian options, “sabzi” (veggies) and “daal” (lentils), are £4.50 and would be under a fiver. I’m also a little curious about their roti base, and might try it out someday.
