I had heard of La Bodega Negra the “older brother” to Casa Negra through blogs and friends but had never been. As I live round he corner from brick lane I just had to try Casa Negra out. We were four and found it relatively easy to get a table as they have a huge chefs table in the kitchen and plenty of seats in the bar. We were greeted by lovely door hosts and offered a seat in the bar for a drink before dinner. My guests and I enjoyed a guacamole and corn chips to start along with ice cold beers, Negra Modelos served michelada style; over ice with spicy tomato juice, a salt-chilli rim and delicious zesty lime wedge, a first for me but definitely not a last. We were then seated in the kitchen and the food, service and atmosphere only got better! We were advised on a selection of tacos to start and had three mains and two ensaladas to share. The costillas de carne was such a surprise never before had I seen such a big rib! My surprise was met with joy as I tasted it. I hundred per cent recommend this dish to any who goes there. We left full and satisfied with everything about Casa Negra. Hasta luego amigos… and THANK YOU for such a fabulous evening.
