Tomorrow (August 25) the burrito will land in Bath.
Mission Burrito is opening the doors of Bath's first burrito-dedicated restaurant in Kingsmead Square.
And that's not all. To celebrate its launch Mission Burrito will be handing out free burritos between 12pm and 3pm. I think it's fairly safe to assume there will be a bit of a queue! But not to worry, the clever people at Burrito HQ have planned ahead and there will be a Mariachi Mexteca to entertain the waiting crowds and transform Kingsmead Square into a Mexican fiesta.
For those who don't know burritos are handheld food found mostly in Mexico and America – a kind of exotic take on a sandwich.

There is an art to a properly crafted burrito – an art that everyone at Mission Burrito has now perfected.
The tortilla must be grilled to soften it, and it should be tightly rolled around ingredients that meld together to create a unified taste.
Getting messy is all part of the enjoyment of munching on a burrito, but an expertly made burrito should not explode or leak all over you. Which is good because you don't want to ruin your clothes, or waste a single morsel of the delicious fillings.
And a Mission Burrito is no measly mouthful, oh no. A Mission Burrito will be at least 1lb of mouth-watering yumminess.
They thought there was a gap in the market, which turned out to be correct as Bath will be their fifth store, hot on the heels of a recent opening in Park Street in Bristol.
Mission Burrito in Bath can seat 24 people indoors, with a bit of outdoor seating for the odd occasion when it's actually sunny.
For customers in a hurry there is the facility to pre-order online to avoid queues during peak times and there is also
the option to takeaway. Mission Burrito also offers outside catering for private functions and festivals and will be at Bath's Love Food Bath Event on Sunday October 9 at Green Park Station.
