Food fashions come and go. It’s hard to believe that Smash will ever be desirable again although we are pretty certain that space dust is due a comeback.
One of the hottest trends right now is for street food and, in particular, Mexican street food.
Take up today’s Big Deal and get your teeth into some classic Mexican street food dishes at Taco Mazama on Hanover Street.
Well established in Glasgow, Taco Mazama specialises in authentic Mexican dishes such as burritos, fajitas and tacos.
Edinburgh’s Hanover Street branch opened this summer and has quickly built up a following that likes to say ‘Si!’ to salsa and ‘Arriba!’ to rice and beans.
Simple but tasty
Available Monday to Wednesday from 5pm, today’s Big Deal is for two people to each have any regular main meal menu item at Taco Mazama on Hanover Street.
It is a simple but tasty set up. First choose between a burrito, fajita, taco, salad bowl or burrito bowl.
Each of the dishes already comes with some variation on rice, beans, salsa, salad sour cream and Monterey Jack cheese.
Slow cooked barbeque pork
Now you have to decide what filling you would like. There are six to chose from and they range from chargrilled marinated chicken and slow cooked barbeque pork to butter squash and peppers with guacamole.
Next, settle on a salsa or sauce. The pico de gallo is mild while, as you might imagine, the Diablo is not.
Finally, all you have to do is enjoy your Mexican treat from Taco Mazama. Finger-licking is encouraged.
Ideal for a pre-theatre bite or simply because you can’t face rummaging around the fridge, today’s Big Deal is the perfect introduction to Edinburgh’s Taco Mazama and its popular take on Mexican street food.
