January is most definitely Avocado Month at Benito’s Hat.
That means we are celebrating the beautiful and healthy fruit with:
- Free guacamole on all burritos, tacos and salads*;
- Velvety-smooth avocado margaritas; and
- Avocado, agave; and apple juice smoothies (for the non-boozers).
*excludes deliveries and Selfridges
Velvety-smooth avocado margarita for your drinking pleasure
First and foremost, we love them and we believe that you do too. Free guacamole is our gift to you in January so please enjoy responsibly!
Here are a few awesome, healthy reasons why we love this delicious fruit that you may or may not know:
- Lots of vitamins, eg. C, K and B5;
- Very high in potassium – higher even than the mighty banana;
- Lots of the good fats and none of the bad; and
- High in antioxidants which can work against hangovers. Ground avocado leaves are also available exclusively in Benito’s restaurants.
All the way from Puebla, Mexico, avocado leaves. Great for jazzing up your beans!
Not tried these leaves before? They have an aniseedy flavour, similar to fennel, and are a traditional seasoning in Puebla, Felipe’s home state. We use them in our black beans and they taste awesome.
Felipe’s autumn special is in!
Our latest burrito was inspired by a recipe from the Benito’s Hat cook book, Real Mexican Food. Felipe has made some changes and used some pretty special, seasonal ingredients. Sweet potato is marinated with Achiote and Guajillo chilli before being roasted and then slow cooked with seasonal Swiss chard and Mushrooms, creating a perfect hearty burrito.
The Super Sweet Potato Burrito comes served up in our 12″ inch flour tortillas, packed with lime & coriander rice and black beans. Wrapping happens after a handful of Monterey Jack Cheese is thrown in, followed with a dollop of sour cream, a squirt of smokey salsa brava and a sprinkle of our chilli roasted pumpkin seeds, for a little extra kick.
What’s more and to make this burrito really super, we’ve teamed up with the brilliant folks at Action Against Hunger, for this year’s Love Food, Give Food campaign. We believe in a world without child hunger and that’s why for every Super Sweet Potato Burrito we sell, we will donate 50p to /@ACF_UK #lovefoodgivefood
Our latest special will be available throughout September and October.
Our latest opening takes us back to the streets! If your seeking a burrito in the city, visit our new Liverpool Street kiosk, located just outside of the main station on Bishopsgate.
