El Toro Loco, which means ‘crazy bull’ in case you were wondering, offers gourmet Mexican street food in the heart of Edinburgh’s old town on the Grassmarket. Apparently the name ‘crazy bull’ came from Paul Duncan’s wife, who thought he was crazy to open another restaurant (he already owns Mamma’s Pizzeria on the Grassmarket).
You are able to ‘create your own’ Mexican delight at El Toro Loco, choosing from burritos, tacos, quesadillas or just a bowl and then filling it with your preferred meat, filling and extras, including salsa and guacamole.. Prices are very reasonable, starting at £4.50-£6 for lunch and everything is made fresh to guarantee quality. As well as creating your perfect lunch, you can also pick the music to accompany your meal through the ‘secret DJ’ app.
The restaurant is decorated with authentic Mexican items, including traditional Mexican bull skulls, resin beaded human skulls (eek) and 36,000 Mexican coins (as well as one five pence coin!).
El Toro Loco is open til late and you can sit in or take away your Mexican feast.
