Square Meal Review of Green & Red ?

A Mexican wave has washed over London these last few years, but E2’s Green & Red succeeds in being totally different from the competition. Eschewing greasy gringo Tex-Mex & trendy California-Mexican in favour of the real thing, G&R’s stock in trade is rare Tequilas (more than 100 – count ’em), cocktails (‘very moreish, so be warned’), & Jaliscan street food. Menus haven’t changed much over the years. Antojitos (appetisers from £3.50) still include jicama salad & octopus ceviche, while gut-busting ‘platos fuertos’ (mains) might be lamb shank with ancho chilli & spices or rib-eye with chipotle salsa. Cheaper taco & burrito lunches are now available for around a fiver. Both restaurant & bar have taken time to bed down, but the cool music, graffiti art, happy-go-lucky staff & daft menu glossary (entitled ‘WTF am I eating?’) suggest they’ve finally nailed it.
