This 2017, Tortilla, the award winning London chain specialising in California-style Mexican food, reveals their healthy options for those looking to watch those extra calories, but still enjoy a flavour packed experience. The street-food concept is the perfect solution for sticking to those New Year’s health resolutions!
Hailing from The Golden State, the healthy fast food eatery has been highly noted for its low-calorie, yet flavourful menu, which offers a variety of Burritos, Tacos, and Quesadillas. The ‘Top 10 Tortilla Truths’ reveal the brand’s true passion for provenance. The list, which is clearly displayed to all diners, demonstrates the commitment to providing fun, healthy and flavourful food created using the freshest and highest quality ingredients available. The restaurant sources top notch produce and provides the highest quality corn-fed chicken as well as grass-fed New Zealand beef for their Barbacoa. In addition all toppings and fillings are made from scratch, food is always served fresh – never frozen – and the famous Tortilla guacamole is made by hand daily from real Hass avocados.
While ‘burritos’ might not be the first thought for those wanting to shed those unwanted festive pounds, Tortilla breaks the mould by offering burritos with less fat and calories than most other restaurants. According to the brand, a regular medium chicken burrito at Tortilla has just 12.2g of fat, and only 4.1g of saturated fat. Each Tortilla restaurant showcases the burrito calorie content at each table, assisting customers in choosing the right meal option. Those looking to go that extra mile on cutting out the calories, can also indulge in Tortilla’s “Burrito bowl”, a dish with all the lovely burrito ingredients, minus the tortilla.
Filling a gap in the market, Tortilla UAE launched on 31 August 2016 with their regional franchise partners, eathos, the group behind popular F&B brands such as SushiArt, Rita’s and Kababji Grill. Tortilla, now with two thriving outlets in Dubai, is set to lead the regional offering in California-style Mexican street food which is easy on the waistline, but doesn’t compromise on flavour.
