Mestizo – Warren Street

Mestizo was a place recommended for a dinner out and a get together with friends. It does not provide your standard run of the mill Mexican food. At Mestizo, you get something that is different and special. It’s not the first time that someone has recommended this Mexican restaurant, so I was more than happy…

Benito’s Hat – Covent Garden

Benito’s Hat has a colourful and vibrant interior with an orange and green theme. These fresh and striking colours are reflected in the food. There’s a funky mural on the back wall towards the bar area of the restaurant. All these elements set the theme of a relaxed eatery. The restaurant is made up of…

Chimichanga – North Finchley

A mid week Mexican lunch meant a visit to Chimichanga! The restaurant is really spacious and has the booth seating on a raised level at the back. The interior is made up of large stone arches and large wooden posts! It had to be the classic nachos to start with; this would also give us time…

Lupita – Charing Cross

We went to Lupita after my friends and I had met for drinks, then realised that it was later than we thought, and some food was in order! Lupita had tapas style Mexican dishes. At first, from the outside, this restaurant looked quite small and crowded. But when we entered, we saw that the dining…

Chiquito – Warley, Birmingham

This Chiquto was quite a big Mexican restaurant and it sure did not feel like it lacked on space. It felt a little dark though as it was quite dimly lit even though it was the daytime. While we were deciding on what to order, we were served with some tortilla chips and a salsa…

Tex-Mex Experience – Fulham Broadway

Tex-Mex Experience was discovered when we were trying to escape from a very rainy evening in Fulham! Initially, we went into the Fulham Broadway shopping centre to take shelter from the rain and then realised that there were restaurants in the building. Another enlightenment was the fact that it was actually time for dinner and…

Wahaca – Covent Garden

Wahaca calls itself Mexican market eating! This restaurant is located below street level. It all looks bright with a turquoise colour theme, wood panelling and bare concrete walls. First impressions definitely count for something on most occasions and for Wahaca, this did not work in its favour. When we arrived, the restaurant was fairly empty. We asked…

Oscars – Whiteleys Bayswater

This is a really good Mexican restaurant with nice decor and a good atmosphere. We only had the appetizers but they were as filling as a main meal. The chicken taquito (a corn tortilla filled with shredded chicken) had tender chicken with taco sauce and a good amount of vegetables. The taco sauce was not too spicy…
