Ex-MasterChef winner Thomasina Miers now oversees branches of her popular canteen-style eatery in Soho, Canary Wharf & Stratford City, but the Covent Garden original still continues to lure diners with its colourful surrounds & ‘delightfully authentic & flavoursome’ Mexican food. Platos fuertes (larger plates) cover burritos, salads & grills, but it’s more fun to share a selection of small, vibrantly spiced ‘street food’ dishes such as pork pibil tacos, chorizo & potato quesadillas or crispy tostadas topped with zingy shrimp & scallop ceviche. Orders are dispatched when they are ready by staff who are ‘up for a laugh’, & Miers’ admirable attention to provenance & sourcing even extends to a noteworthy list of sipping Tequilas & mezcal. No bookings, but you can at least enjoy a properly made margarita while you wait.
