Holy Mole! We visited London’s most authentic Mexican restaurant Mestizo, which also has the largest collection of tequila and mezcal in the UK!
Mexican owned, with super friendly Mexican chefs and staff, this spot aims to provide traditional Mexican cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. Those with more restrictive diets will love the special menus for vegan, vegetarian, gluten & lactose free diets.
We kicked things off with a round of fresh fruit margarita’s but save room for a frozen one too! These guys know a thing or two about tequila!
Food here is varied and ranges from the expected nacho’s right through to more unique Mexican food. Try the Filete Arriero – 3 beef medallions delicately plated with courgette ribbons.
We loved the steaming Molcajete ‘Mestizo’ too – served in a big volcanic stone bowl, this is the perfect dish to share with friends on a cold winters night!
Desserts are just as substantial and we had trouble fitting them in but if you can manage it, go for the crepes drizzled in caramel sauce and nuts – just like everything else – these are perfect for sharing!
Also worth mentioning is the ALL YOU CAN EAT brunch served up on Sunday’s for a bargainous £19.99!
