Last Thursday I was lucky enough to be invited to the sneak peek week of Muchacho, a new Mexican street food takeaway opening in Aberdeen. Seeing as my experience of Mexican food is limited to Chiquitos and Old El Paso I jumped at the chance to be able to sample authentic Mexican fare. Muchacho is situated in the Rose Street area of Aberdeen and is the brain child of Elena Aspe, Lee Brandie and Darren Wilson. While travelling, Elena and Lee loved the food so much that they decided to bring it back to Aberdeen by opening its first Mexican street food takeaway and that’s how Muchacho was born!
After Lee gave us the background on how Muchacho came about he invited us to order something off the menu. I decided on the adobo chicken burrito so I could let Mr M try at home since he was unable to come with me. The burrito is made from a large flour tortilla filled with rice, black beans, your choice of salsa (had to be the sweetcorn one for me) and cheese. If you are gluten free like me there is a naked burrito which is basically the filling minus the tortilla. Other GF choices are: tacos with the corn tortilla, nachos or salad and for the vegetarians amongst you, there is a roasted vegetable filling.
