I am a true burrito lover and always looking to spot some nice places in central Dublin where I live and study. My University – Trinity College Dublin – has a plenty of good locales around it to grab a snack between the lectures, but so far only one good burrito place. I am talking about Mama’s Revenge, a dangerously enough sounding bar just outside College Green and next to the National Gallery.
Mama’s Revenge is a small place with only a few seats next to the window on the ground floor and some more – downstairs. The Theme is Texas/Mexican: you can get some really spicy sauces if you are a fan of “real stuff”. I rather prefer mild flavours like medium salsa. You can choose between 4 kinds of burrito, my favourite in terms of price/value is the Basic Burrito which easily replaces a proper dinner for me.
If you make a “basic” choice you get a tortilla with rice, beans, sour cream, cheese and either chicken, pork, beef or potatoes with vegetables. With a student card a Basic Burrito costs 5 Euro. They even put guacamole in your roll if you pay a little extra. Yum!
Make sure you have cash in your pocket since there’s no card machine but staff is always friendly to point you to the closest ATM and keep your burrito warm until you are back.
I don’t know who will take revenge next time. Most probably me – by coming for another burrito some time soon!
