06 Sep Fonda Mexican, Richmond
After perusing the menu we settled on sharing a kangaroo fillet burrito, which consisted of 12” tortilla (made by Abbotsford Convent bakery) filled with spiced black beans, pumpkin, fetta, salsa roja, pepitas ($16)
We were told the kangaroo fillet would be cooked rare. Most of the pieces arrived being more like medium-well done, but I didn’t mind since we weren’t eating the kangaroo as a steak. There was a nice charcoal flavour around the outside. The tortilla was one of the best I’ve had so far: slightly browned but tender and chewy. Some crunchiness in the burrito was given by the toasted peptitas, which I thought was a nice touch. Surprisingly there was also white quinoa included in the burrito, which wasn’t in the menu description. It helped make the burrito lighter than what it would have been if it were all substituted with black beans.
