It opens next Thursday so I thought I would give it its own thread. They are putting the finishings up at the moment and look like they are making an effort to try and give the place a bit of character lacking in its previous two incarnations. Spoke briefly to the owner, the menu will be up on Monday.
I look forward to reviews ...
I really, really hope it's nice. I've been schlepping to Chipotle and Benito's Hat an awful lot lately.
@ janedoe - 'Rate' implies that I'm some sort of aficionado, when really I just love spicy food.
What did you have? I always have the barbacoa with black beans, brown rice, both spicy and pico de gallo, and salad. I never have the guacamole, soured cream nor cheese as I find it just ends up a gloopy fatty mess.
In Benito's Hat however I had the pork with everything and it was also great; really distinct flavours, delicious.
Mmmm, I'm hungry now.
Now, I've not been to Daddy Donkey but I have heard good things.
Burrito Bros is okay too.
Benitos Hat has the spiciest chilli sauce i have ever tasted in my life. I love hot food but this stuff just took my head off. The guy in the place said that only 3-4 people a month have it and he was surprised that i'd gone for it. Post flames, he gave me a five little dishes with sauces of varying heat to show the gradual changes. Good grief, don't go for number 5.....it could trigger a fit.
Oh, either they didn't offer it, or I didn't notice - oh well, next time.
where is it going to be? Stroud Green Road? whereabouts?
It's at the Dudley's Pancakes site on SGR by Wetherspoons.
Chilango's (nearest one is Angel) is having a free burrito day on Cinco de Mayo to celebrate the opening of their new Chancery Lane branch. The idea of free burritos sounds very attractive! It would be lovely if Cafe Mexicali had a similar promotion....
http://www.cafemexicali.co.uk/ still not up at time of posting this. Piss poor.
I think it's next Thursday no?
Website != open.
You've just made me realise that I'm in Mexico City for Cinco de Mayo - hooray!
I went a few times to Wahaca and it was great to start, but then went very quickly downhill. I'm assuming it must've greatly improved.
Yeah I don't rate it either. Good selection of Mexican beers and Tequila, but the food is pretty bland. And stoggie, even by Mexican standards.
There are cactuses and signs outside, not open yet but it looks like they are planning on opening this evening.
Has anyone tried the Mexican place on Blackstock Rd - Exquisitas? Looks like it's been there ages but I've only noticed it today.
I used to go to Exquisite all the time when I lived on the Blackstock Road, I quite liked it. Not been for ages.
