I visited La Perla a few weeks back with some friends, with the hope it would provide a laid back reasonable yet somewhat authentic night for a good catch up. Whilst it was indeed laid back and reasonably priced with friendly service, it completely lacked the authenticity of good mexican food and was at best a cheesefest with assorted carbohydrates.
Nacho's were generously portioned but drenched in melted cheese so that it was impossible to finish off – even between three of us, without wasting our mains. The attempt at saving space in my already dairy filled stomach was futile anyway, as the vegetarian quesedillas I had ordered were again heavy on the cheese and easy on the vegetables, lacking any seasoning or real flavour. Cocktails, such as the strawberry margherita were watered down (or iced down to be more accurate) syrupy concoctions of nothingness.
In summary if it wern't for the company it would have been a dire night. Nothing to write home about or venture out to anytime soon.
