Offering tasty Mexican fare, Los Cardos is a superb value for those on the move in Leith. There are only a couple of tables, so takeaway is a likely option. First decide whether you want a burrito, quesadilla, or soft tacos, then opt for one of many fillings: marinated steak or chicken, perhaps, or slow-cooked pork. Toppings range from mild pico de gallo to creamy homemade guacamole with optional grilled peppers and onions. Many locals— including Trainspotting
writer Irvine Welsh—have confessed their addiction to the haggis burrito.
