Over the years, Mexican cuisine has become one of the most popular go-tos for people ordering takeaways across the UK. And it's no surprise really, it's spicy, vibrant and practically bursting with flavour. So when you're in the mood for some authentic Mexican goodies, here are a few places to get to know.
1. Grilled Chicken Burrito, Tortilla
The husband and wife team at Tortilla hail from well-known burrito capital San Francisco, and since 2007, they've brought all their expertise of rustic Mexican recipes across the pond. Unsurprisingly, it's their burritos that are proving to be the most popular. Grilled chicken, sizzling steak or pork – you're in for a real treat no matter which one wins you over.
Where: Tortilla, various locations
2. Corn Tacos, El Mexicana
If you prefer the crunch of a traditional corn taco, try El Mexicana. This Mexican superstar served with fragrant flavoured rice, black or refried beans, sautéed onions and peppers, crunchy shredded lettuce, melted Monterey Jack Cheese and topped off with cooling sour cream, plus jalapeños for the brave at heart.

3. Braised Pork Burrito Bowl, Burrbar Mexican Kitchen
If you love Mexican food but need something that's easy to eat on the go, you'll find the perfect dish over at the Burrbar Mexican Kitchen. Their Burrito Bowls are hugely popular – especially their succulent braised pork option. We'd pair it with a bag of their freshly made tortilla chips and smoky chipotle salsa pot for the perfect takeaway lunch.

4. Sweet Chilli Prawn fajitas, Casa Mexicana
Love everything about fajitas except for cooking them? Place an order with Casa Mexicana – their authentic recipe with juicy, sweet chilli prawns is one of our favourite dishes, loaded with a homemade salsa and guacamole, sour cream, pickled jalapenos, refried beans, and served in soft tortillas. Of course, you could always swap out the prawns for strips of steak or chicken.
Where: Casa Mexicana, Bristol
5. BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Burrito, Club Mexicana – KERB Camden Market
Mexico loves meat dishes, but at Club Mexicana in Camden Market, they serve up some delectable vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free alternatives so everyone can get in on the fun. Their BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Burrito is their signature dish, with slow-cooked black beans and pink, pickled onions. Or, if you want less mess, try their 'naked' burrito bowl for the same flavours but without the tortilla.
