Me and the boys were recently invited to try out one of these new additions to the Nottingham food scene - Tortilla in Victoria Centre. Situated alongside Millies Cookies (c'mon we all know where they are right?!). Tortilla is a chain restaurant specialising in Californian burritos and tacos.
My eldest also shares my love of Mexican food but upon entering and seeing the vast choice of food, I wasn't sure what he'd think! Luckily, we were in excellent hands and the amazing staff guided us through the process.
Tortilla is like Subway and Inferno in that you 'make' your own food so can really personalise it along the way. This is always a great option when you have kids as there's no picking through food trying to take bits out that they don't like. My eldest opted for mixed meat Tacos and my youngest and I went for a chicken Burrito. I could not believe the portion sizes - I thought they were excellent value for the delicious food we had.
The boys were invited behind the scenes to make their own food and I have to say the staff really were AMAZING with them, really friendly and knowledgeable about the food which was great as the boys were really curious about toppings etc.
Looking around, I realised that the restaurant was filled with customers of all ages so I didn't feel out of place taking kids inside. The setting is also quite comfy which can be missing from a lot of fast food places now as they strive to get you in and out in no time at all.
The food was delicious and I thought it was great value for money as a main meal. I only managed just over half my burrito and I was utterly stuffed. The boys loved their food and have asked to go back already - which says a lot as they can be fussy eaters...
