BEST FOR Real-deal food from south of the bor­der. FOOD The fo­cus is squarely on tasty, fresh and au­then­tic Mex­i­can fare; think wood-roasted na­chos, cheesy que­sadil­las, gluten-free, soft corn tacos and flam­ing jalapeños. Try the sur­pris­ing flavours and tex­tures of the potato-and-chorizo que­sadilla, or stick with the free-range chicken que­sadilla. There are plenty of veg­e­tar­ian op­tions, in­clud­ing a lively mush­room, pep­per and jalapeño chilli que­sadilla, or try the hal­loumi, veg and re­fried beans taco. Sink your teeth into the beer-bat­tered hake taco – light tem­pura-fried hake on top of a de­lec­ta­ble slaw. There aren’t any dessert op­tions. DRINKS Ev­ery­thing from Corona and a se­lec­tion of craft beers (bot­tled and on tap) to loads of tequi­las. SER­VICE The food is def­i­nitely bet­ter than the ser­vice, which may be down to staff turnover; but over­all, the ex­pe­ri­ence is worth­while. Self-ser­vice drinks. AM­BI­ENCE Laid-back cantina vibe. (SM)
