Pinto brings the amazing flavours and lively ambience associated with Mexican street food to Edinburgh. Fast, healthy and very tasty, it's hardly surprising that quesadillas, burritos and tacos are proving popular at this Scottish start-up, Pinto. The restaurant looked fun and inviting from the outside and, once we entered, it didn't disappoint, with Hispanic music playing and a relaxed atmosphere. Rather than ordering from the table, guests are invited to the counter to select their fare, to be paired with a selection of authentic fillings, salsas and extras, all assembled with startling speed and efficiency. We went for a selection of the smaller tacos and braved the hottest sauce, in addition to a big, chargrilled steak burrito - the fiery green salsa was an excellent match for rich meat flavour. The tacos, which come in threes, allowed us to sample succulent pulled pork, barbacoa beef and an excellent Veracruz chilli. But the star of this feast was the refried beans - so hard to get right when trying to cook Mexican at home - with both pintos and black bean replace: mix. After dining, why not finish with a Margarita. The Negra Modelo beers are yet another reason to return
