We adored the tortilla chips; which are served with your choice of one of their fresh salsas or guacamole. It seemed like quite an Americanised experience, with the food being served on paper wrapping in little plastic baskets. The owner explained that High Tech Burrito is franchised from a Silicon Valley business which was founded at the time when growth of computer technology and the Internet was exploding. We were both pleased with our burritos. I was particularly impressed with the tofu, which had the winning combination of both texture and flavour as opposed to a bland lump as tofu can often be. As it turns out, the name is a nod to the origin of the business rather than a description of the burritos themselves. They seemed no more advanced than regular burritos.
My friend ordered a vegetarian burrito, which contained tofu, guacamole, Spanish rice and beans. The burritos were fairly dense, as they tend to be, packed full of a miscellany of delicious ingredients. Other than their namesake, they also serve other Mexican inspired classics such as tacos and nachos. The mildest salsa, which consisted of diced tomato and onion, was similar to bruschetta. At first the hint of spice was almost imperceptible, but it builds up over time to have a significant kick.
Meanwhile the guacamole was slightly hot to our Western tastes. Sadly we were unable to finish our burritos, but not through lack of trying- they were huge!. Perhaps the reference is lost on Australians, particularly those of a generation that doesn't remember the dot-com boom. The combination of ingredients went well together; it was all perfectly seasoned and flavoursome without being too overpowering. Yet we had barely been sitting for a few minutes when our baskets of tortilla chips arrived. Whether or not you get the name, one thing about High Tech Burrito is loud and clear: their food strikes that winning combination of tasty, fresh and fast. A huge variety of tasty burritos are just waiting to be made and eaten at , a brightly sunlit corner store on lively.
After maybe five minutes of picking at the chips, our steaming hot burritos were ready. There is a self-serve drink fountain, adding to the impression. . . .
