SquareMeal Review of
With its lively Latin beats, bare floors and portraits of revolutionary hero Zapata on the walls, this cheerful, scruffy and cheap little dive captures the old boho buzz of Notting Hill. Messy but delicious Mexican food is the order of the day, so get your fingers around succulent palm-sized tacos – perhaps stuffed with shredded slow-cooked pork, pickled jalapeño, green pepper and citrus. There are also crispy tostadas topped with ceviche, as well as home-cured chorizo, chicken marinated in beer, and even smoked cod with guacamole, roast corn and chipotle – all backed by essential sides such as refried black beans. Be sure to save room for some deep-fried churros or a rich pudding with cajeta (the Mexican version of dulce de leche). Drink beer and Tequila if you’re brave, ‘aquas frescas’ (flavoured water) if you’re not.
