Muchacho opened last year, on the Nethergate, across the road from Wee Mexico. Its central location makes it handy for picking up some Mexican street food. It stands out with its bright exterior and neon lights and seemed to be very popular with school kids when we popped in for lunch.

The decor is really bold and funky, with festoon lights and greenery that gives it a bit of an outdoors feel. It wasn't clear what vegan options there were at first glance but the staff were happy to help explain the menu. Basically, if you choose the roasted vegetable filling then anything can be made vegan minus the cheese and sour cream. I had a regular burrito and my friend had soft flour tacos. We chose the milder salsas - Pico de Gallo and Miss Elenita. Our food was made fresh and was quite tasty, I do usually prefer Mexican food with vegan cheese and sour cream but it still had really nice flavours. My only issue was that as there isn't a substitute for those ingredients, it would be fairer to get a small discount when ordering vegan. If you're looking for a more indulgent treat, and enjoy vegan dairy alternatives, then it's worth checking out Wee Mexico. Muchacho is still a great spot for a quick lunch and it definitely feels a bit of a healthy option.
