Five Minute Photoshop Time! Mission comes to Park Street
I miss Oxford. Having spent several happy gastronomic, dance-able and stressed-out university years there, am sometimes hit with a wave of nostalgia for the spires, the pretentious rah’s and the various lovely eateries.
One of my favourites finds of my final year was a small but perfectly formed quick-fire Tex Mex place called The Mission. It was an instant hit with local and students (of both the Colleges and Brookes) alike due to their glorious, instant gratification burritos. Customers were invited to mix it up and personalise their foil wrapped goodies - pick a meat: chicken, steak, carnitas (pork) or vegetables then sauce it up with salsas, rice or sour cream. Think Subway but, well, nicer! All come in at under £6 if you don't include any extras. Bargain!
The newest branch of The Mission is now open at 62 Park Street, Bristol, BS1 5JN. I'll be checking it out very soon!
