Tostado brings the little-explored cuisine of Ecuador to London’s West End. Named after a type of Ecuadorian corn, Tostado specialises in ceviches. The rough-and-ready interior is all white brick walls, low-lighting and elbow-to-elbow wooden tables, while the food is designed to evoke the flavours of Ecuador. Starters include sancocho (beef soup) and prawn ceviche, followed by small plates of lentil stew, fried plantain or perhaps a chorizo platter. For bigger appetites, there’s flat iron steak and oven-baked salmon, also with plantain. Finish with sugary treats such as figs in pure cane syrup with white cheese, or hot chocolate fudge and cream. The wine list takes in Spanish, English and Chilean sips, while there are fresh juices and smoothies too.
