Tortilla, the UK’s largest fast-casual Mexican restaurant brand, will open the doors of its 50th restaurant, located in Gunwharf Quays designer outlet, at R14 Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth on 17 June.

Seating up to 46 people, across one floor with both inside and outside tables, the restaurant’s opening will create 25-30 new jobs for local people across front-of-house, kitchen, and management roles. The restaurant will be located in the prime Spinnaker Quarter within the designer outlet, opposite the renowned Spinnaker Tower and overlooking the waterfront, with incredible views towards the Isle of Wight.

The launch of Tortilla Gunwharf Quays brings with it the brand’s customisable and authentic, California-style menu, with dishes to suit all tastes, cravings, or dietary requirements. Whether ordering in-store, click-and-collect to takeaway, or for delivery, customers can build their own meal with a choice of tasty fillings such as Mexican rice, black beans, grilled seasonal veggies and fresh mild, medium and hot salsas, including their fresh, hand-smashed guacamole.

Its choice of protein—served in tacos, burritos, bowls, quesadillas and atop nachos queso —includes slow-cooked Barbacoa with grass-fed British Isle brisket, grilled chicken or succulent pulled carnitas pork. Approved by the Vegetarian & Vegan Society, Tortilla also serves an organic tempeh Chilli No Carne or a choice of grilled seasonal veggies. All toppings are prepared fresh on-site each morning and every dish is made to order.
