SquareMeal Review of Mestizo

Smarter than most Mexican joints in the capital, Mestizo is trying to do something a bit different. Taking its name from the mixed-race descendants of the conquistadores, it offers a fusion of Mexican & Spanish flavours: begin by ordering some street food for the table (beef empanadas or deep-fried tortillas stuffed with spicy fish), before investigating regional specialities such as mole huasteco (a grilled chicken dish from Hidalgo served with a spicy chocolate sauce) or piña rellena de mariscos (a scooped-out pineapple filled with seafood & a spicy coriander dressing). There’s also a huge selection of tortillas, burritos & chimichangas at very friendly prices. Ignore the traffic roaring by on busy Hampstead Road & surrender to the brain-teasing temptations of myriad Tequilas & Tequila-based cocktails.

Amazing food, great ambience and fantastic value. I love the theatre of the volcano bowl, and the fried cheese has to be tasted to be believed. All the food i've had here has been cooked with love, care and talent. Service can be a bit chaotic, but that's part of the charm for what is my favourite local eatery. I'm not a big drinker, but my friends tell me the Margaritas are epic!


Okay quick meal before catching train

I do not think we got the best out of this dining experience. at the waiting staff certainly could have tried a bit harder to be more attentive/available as we spent quite a few minutes just trying to attract their attention to place our order or enquire about our drinks order. If you have plenty of time to look at all the food choices and have a waiter who has time to guide you through the menu then you would probably have a great time. Good location and comfy chairs. Table a bit wobbly. Come on you guys - try to be a bit more on it!!
