SquareMeal Review of
Guadalajara warehouse chic sets the scene at this cute cocktail bar/cantina Latina from the hombres at Viva! on Stoke
Newington Road. Start with quesadillas, agave-smoked BBQ ribs or sea bass ceviche, move on to lamb shank stew (birria de cordero), enchiladas, fajitas, Tequila-marinated, flame-cooked king prawns
with rice and tortillas or pozole rojo (a spicy, soupy stew made from pork shoulder and hominy corn), and round off with crème caramel (aka ‘flan’). Then load up on martinis, mojitos, mules, mai
tai, tamarind margaritas, jolly joker (vodka, maraschino liqueur, crème de violette, blackberries and black pepper) and rum dog millionaire (Gosling’s rum, Campari, guava juice and lemon) from a
list of classics and signature drinks. Easy-drinking vino, designer cervezas and suitably sunny service complete the picture.
