One of my fav places to go for lunch for a burrito, slightly more expensive than Zambrero but much more tastier. I'd recommend the beef burrito with a corona ($6) which is very reasonable. Located in the arcade, they offer takeaway or dining experiences.

Tucked away in neat little corner in the Lambton food court, this place knows what they're doing. Fresh ingredients are married with excellent meats to create a delicious product. Well done to them
