Have you tried our gin of the week?
We’d like to thank you all for your support throughout 2018.
The last four months in particular have been the most successful since our opening in October 2017.
We really enjoyed seeing new faces as well as many returning customers.
A big GRACIAS to the bustling Chester community. We enjoy being part of it every day as an independent restaurant!
And a special shout out to the local #vegan community, that has been so supportive of our large plant-based menu.
Finally, big thanks to each member of our team: we couldn’t have done it without your help.
Happy 2019, everyone! We hope to see you all soon
At Jack Burrito, we created the craziest (and tastiest!) solution to your ‘Sunday Roast or Mexican food’ dilemma: YORKOS. They are Yorkshire pudding based tacos, stuffed with roasted veggies and served with a good old pot of gravy.
You can choose between Mexican Spiced Beef Chilli, Pork Carnitas and Herb & Lime Marinated Pull Chicken. Or add some Mexican stuffing: how festive!
“I wanted to find a way to combine the essence of the traditional British Christmas dinner and Mexican street food,’ said executive chef Bethany Donkin. “What better than Yorkshire pudding based tacos?”
Not only have they been greatly appreciated by our amigos: they also ended up on the local news for Chester and Cheshire!
Come and try them!
Mexican and south american food in chester
‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year,’ they say, and it is indeed: Chester is covered in fairy lights, the colourful stalls of the Christmas market are popping up in town and Jack Burrito has a brand new winter menu!
We are very excited to introduce it to you. Our executive chef Bethany Donkin has invested a lot of time in researching traditional Mexican recipes and creating a wide array of South American inspired dishes that are perfect to enjoy when it’s chilli outside (pun intended).
jack burrito’s winter menu: meaty and vegan dishes
Jack Burrito’s new menu is a combination of all-time favourites, a few Autumn Specials that proved too popular to be left out, and many new exotic flavours. As always, almost every item has a vegan alternative, meaning that the vegan menu offers around thirty plant-based dishes, from starters to mains to desserts.
Here are just a few highlights.
Our ‘antojitos’—Mexican street food that can be enjoyed as a starter, with your main or on its own—now include elotes (Mexican corn on the cob with cheese and mayo) and garnachas (fried corn tortilla with meaty or vegan toppings and salsas).
Among Jack Burrito’s new mains you will find quesadillas (cheesy half-moon toasted tortillas) and mole poblano (chicken or mushroom topped with traditional mole sauce, national dish of Mexico).
Also, hot dogs are finally back: El Salvador is inspired by the homonymous country, where this tasty street food is topped with pickled cabbage and mustard.
Due to popular demand, we are keeping our Feijoada (Brazilian black bean and sausage stew) and molletes (Mexican baguettes) from the Autumn Specials menu.
Would you rather feel Christmassy?
Then we are sure you’ll love our Yorkos, Jack’s very own Yorkshire pudding based tacos with roasted veggies and a pot of gravy, and our Winter Special Burrito, which includes spicy cranberry chipotle.
There are many new additions to the dessert menu, too, with a special mention going to the mouth-watering Ginger bread buñuelos: fried dough balls served with hot chocolate fudge sauce or winter fruit compote.
Oh, and don’t worry: our popular churros are staying!
We are right in town, just a stone’s throw away from the Cathedral.
2) STYLE BURRITOS YOUR WAY
Get creative with our fully customisable burritos, so that we can get it just how you like it.
3) PLENTY TO CHOOSE FROM
Although our burritos are pretty awesome, they are far from being the only menu item at Jack Burrito! We have something for everyone, ranging from tacos, to South American soups, to chilli con carne and much more, all hand crafted by our amazing chefs.
4) ONE OF THE LARGEST VEGAN MENUS IN TOWN
We were so tired of always seeing one or two menu choices for vegans that we decided to create one of the largest plant-based menus in Chester.
We like to help the environment as much as we can. That’s why we are now palm-oil free, we joined #StrawFreeChester by switching to biodegradable straws, and we offer eco-friendly takeaway and in-store packaging.
6) EXPERIMENT WITH OUR SAUCE WALL
Let’s see how brave you are when you are faced with our sizzling paradise of mild-to-hot sauces.
7) LOCALLY SOURCED
We love being part of the Chester community, and sourcing our food from local businesses like David Joinson Quality Meats and Francis Thomas Fruit & Vegetable is one of our core values.
8) UNLIMITED TACO TUESDAY
You can get your weekly fix of tacos for only £15pp. As many as you can fit in your stomach!
9) LIVE ACOUSTIC MUSIC ON FRIDAYS
There’s a reason we call it Fiesta Friday: ‘cause it’s a fun celebration! From sharing cocktails to live acoustic music.
10) SUPPORT INDEPENDENT
We are and we do support independent businesses and invite you to do the same!
