Hidden at the end of potentially the cutest side street in Glasgow - Ashton Lane - is Tomboy, a quirky Mexican restaurant which is home to the best burritos I have ever eaten (and I've eaten a lot of burritos.)
Not only is the food delicious but Tomboy is unique and full of character. I mean where else do you place your orders at a till housed in a truck?!
I have done nothing but rave about this little restaurant ever since I first discovered it. I have been dying for a chance to go back so last week, I decided to introduce one of my best friends, Freya, to the wonder that is Tomboy. Freya is one of the most lovely, supportive and positive people I know so an evening out with her is always fab and I'm happy to report that she liked the burritos as much as I did.
When you arrive at Tomboy, instead of waiters taking your order, you get to fill out a little form so your dish is exactly how you like it. I think this is such a nice touch and definitely adds to the whole experience.
With the burritos - my personal preference - you can choose from BBQ beef, chilli chicken, chilli beef or vegetable chilli and then add your choice of lettuce, rice, beans, cheese, sour cream, salsa and guacamole. The guacamole is especially tasty :)
My favourite combination is vegetable chilli with lettuce, rice, beans, guacamole and mild salsa...so good!
The burritos are stuffed full making them a complete meal in their selves. The vegetable chilli and salsa are very saucy which is great for me and the guacamole is so creamy and delicious. You get the impression that the chefs take their burritos very seriously!
If you're one for spice, there is also a hot sauce challenge, the sauce is apparently so hot, you're required to sign a waiver before you try it! Another Tomboy quirk.

The staff are lovely, the place is cosy and the prices are pretty reasonable making Tomboy the perfect mid-week pick me up!
If Mexican food is your thing, I would ten out of ten recommend!
