Tacos, tacos, tacos… burrito, burrito, burrito. With so many mexican joints everywhere, why is it that those are the only options that always spring to mind when it comes to Mexican food? I mean, they’re delicious and nasty, but what about the rest? Is there more to Mexico than tortillas?
There is. In what is likely to be the most authentic Mexican restaurant in London (as told by actual mexicans), Mestizo has a menu with so many options that aren’t tortilla based, that it puts other Mexican joints to shame. And on top of them all lies the Molcajete ‘Mestizo’.
It makes quite a splashy entrance, as it comes in a stone bowl filled with beef, chicken, cheese, chorizo, onions, cilantro, avocado, salsa… I could keep going, but you already can tell this is one filthy dish. So deliciously messy, that it’ll make you think twice about ordering those tequila shots afterwards as you’ll want the taste of this beautiful mess to remain in your palate longer.
Oh, and yes, it also comes with tortillas. But what did you expect, it is Mexican after all…
Slimy? Once you mix it all, it certainly looks like you won’t survive the meal
Satisfying? Look into this stone bowl, and you’ll see deep into your soul. That’s how good it is.
