Taste Mexico at El Burro


It’s where the Insiders go for authentic Mexican grub.

This lively, quirkily decorated restaurant hardly needs an introduction, suffice to say: if you’re after an interesting selection of good Mexican grub in a festive atmosphere, with friendly and efficient waitrons, there’s no place else. If you’ve never been, its lunchtime specials menu is a good opportunity to try it out:


  • ceviche of finely diced fresh linefish, R50
  • sweet potato taquitos (a corn tortilla with sweet potato and feta cheese), R40


  • roast winter vegetable salad, R55
  • Mexican chopped salad, R55


  • chicken mole poblano (deboned chicken in a roast tomato and dark chocolate sauce), R85
  • carne asada (free-range rib-eye steak and potatoes), R110
  • aubergine or chicken quesadillas, R70 or R80
  • plated tacos (vegetarian or pork), R80 – R85
  • build-your-own taco (pork or chicken), R80 – R90


  • churros, R35

Please note: these specials aren’t applicable on public holidays, days when there’s a stadium event, or for sharing.

Time 12pm – 4pm
