Tortilla Blogger Event | Intu Victoria Centre, Nottingham

I was recently invited along to Nottingham Intu Victoria Centre for a Blogger event at Tortilla in celebration of their Gingerella Burritos! Tortilla is a Cali-Mex restaurant made in Burrito heaven.

 I have never actually eaten at Tortilla before so I was really excited when I saw the email in my inbox inviting me along for try out their food.

  When I arrived at Tortilla I was warmly greeted and shown to a long table, adorned with ice buckets of Gingerella (the star of the show) Nachos with various dips and balloons. I was with some lovely fellow East Midland blogger ladies so the atmosphere was relaxed and chatty and we got stuck into the Gingerella and nachos whilst we waited for every one to arrive.

Once we were all seated, and had munched some of the tasty chips, we had a talk all about Tortilla.
Tortilla began in 2007 with their first store opening in Islington, London. They wanted to create the best Californian Burritos over here in the UK and they now have 33 restaurants, two of which are in Nottingham. A lot of their Californian roots can be seen within the stores today, starting with the décor. There are rustic wooden tables, panelled walls and signature red tiles. Fun fact about those red tiles, is that they are actually symbolic of the San Francisco bridge, which goes to show the level of thought that has been put into every aspect of Tortilla. We were given some information about Tortilla, from what ingredients they use, to some fun facts and their latest mouth watering treat, Gingerella Carnitas. Yup Ginger ale infused burritos for the month of June! The pork is marinated in the Gingerella and then slow cooked until it is melt in the mouth tender. What's really amazing is that 10p from every Gingerella Carnitas purchase is donated to charity, which I think is such a lovely thought. By the reaction of the other bloggers I can see the combination is a big hit!

Being a vegetarian I was made my own Tacos and Burritos to try. The ingredients are so fresh and full of earthy, spicy flavour, it was scrumptious - though I am yet to master eating a burrito gracefully! We had some Gingerella to go with it, which was absolutely delicious and refreshing, it helped wash down all that food nicely.

A meal wouldn't be a meal without a cheeky cocktail, and the Frozen Margarita's we were given were an absolute delight! If it wasn't a Tuesday I could have easily had another. Speaking of drinks, they even had a huge chandelier made from Corona bottles, we were told they were beers for chandeliers! It not only looked incredible, it also mars nicely with Tortilla's sustainability values.

We were kindly given a gift bag to take home with us which had a can of Gingerella, some hot sauce and a gift voucher for a free burrito, which I will look forward to using on my next visit! Have you been to Tortilla? If so will you be trying out their new Gingerella?
