Takeaway Test: Amigos Mexican, London Road, Sheffield

Have your say

In scorching weather food which packs a bit of heat can sometimes really hit the spot. And if there’s one thing Mexicans know how to do, it’s serving up grub which is hot, hot, hot.

I was intrigued to find out whether London Road’s Amigos could match Sheffield’s Street Food Chef in the cuisine steaks (geddit?). Boy, did it deliver – after an hour wait, mind.

I went for the veggie version of the gordita (£5.50) – flat bread filled with tomatoes, peppers, refried beans and jalapeños. It was delicious, though a little milder than I’d have liked.

My brother opted for the large beef chilli burrito (£6.25) and was equally impressed, but noted the great, meaty flavour was lost due to a sour cream overload. At £1 a piece the business’s own guacamole and salsa were cheaper and fresher than anything on supermarket shelves and went great with our potato wedges (£2).
