SquareMeal Review of Spiritual

Check out this funky, fabulously friendly and atmospheric Chalk Farm indie, but be prepared for a squeeze at the bar. Turn up for poetry and spoken-word performances, otherwise expect digital (or live) Latin, soul and samba sounds to spill out onto the pavement – along with punters escaping the joint’s Amazon rain-forest climes at peak times. Cool off with a mango and coconut batida or a top-notch fruity caipirinha; alternatively, trade up to a pomodoro (with tomatoes and a slug of port) or ‘caipibeer’ (or a lagerinha, if you prefer) in a salt-rimmed glass. Dine informally on sirloin steak with chips and salad, spicy chicken stew with coconut milk and cashews, salt cod cakes, breaded squid goujons and chocolate cake, before practicing your Portuguese with the Brazilian expats shivering outside, miles from their spiritual home – Copacabana beach.
