Reading restaurant named finalist for the Best Mexican Establishment in Food Awards England 2022


A Mexican restaurant in Reading has reached the final of the Food Awards England 2022. The awards celebrate the best cuisine in the industry and the winners will be announced in June at a black-tie event in Manchester.

Mission Burrito, in Reading’s Oracle Mall, could be crowned Mexico’s Best Establishment 2022. It’s one of many Reading businesses to have reached the finals in various categories – and is facing competition from across the country.

Mission Burrito began its journey over ten years ago. The company’s stated goal is to “create the kind of burrito shops we’d love to visit if we weren’t so busy running them.” He also says he’s “committed to making ridiculously good burritos with fresh ingredients, from scratch every day.”

While burritos are the main course, the restaurant also serves tacos, a salad box, and a rice box. The food is hand picked and served so you can have the burrito the way you like it.

“Without a doubt, there are incredible specialists across the country, who know how to provide excellent service, delicious cuisine and meet the expectations of their diners. These are the professionals we aim to recognize at the Food Awards England 2022.
