Mestizo Review

Top 10 questions we answered about Mestizo restaurant when we visited:

1) Are you a Mexican or a Mexican’t? Mestizo, a distinctly stylish Mexican restaurant and bar on Hampstead Road, should go some way to settling that particular debate.

2) Do you know the way to San José? Mexican neophytes could do worse than soak up the décor, which is based on traditional cultural images and bathed in low lighting.

3) Are you a victim of horrendous tequila flashbacks from your university days? Exorcise the demons by checking out the smooth textures and subtle blends on offer at the towering main bar, allegedly home to the largest collection of tequilas in the UK.

4) Need to brush up on your Central American geography? Helpfully, the menu at Mestizo is ordered by region, hand-picking the best culinary efforts of each area to great and informative effect. The result is an enticing fusion (or “mezcla”) of influences and flavours.

5) ¿Tienes hambre? The food may not look like much – often served without any sides or embellishments – but local delicacies such as pollo con mole and enchiladas Cancun are devilishly tasty and served in generous portions.

6) Feeling saucy? The fare here is notable for its delicious sauces, which bring to life otherwise unremarkable-looking dishes.

7) Got milk? The home-made Tres Leches cake is a lactose luxury incorporating three different kinds of milk into a soggy but scrumptious dessert – highly recommended.

8) Like your cocktails served in gigantic goblets? If so, the Copa de Oro is probably for you, although the tequila is diluted in a Holy Grail’s worth of fizzy water, with less than desirable results. Try one of many variants on the Margarita instead, for an alluring accompaniment to your meal.

9) More of a party animal than a foodie? Head downstairs to the small, crowded lounge bar and kitchen, which holds regular functions, private parties and “jueves mexicano” - a free-for-all, immensely fun gathering for local ex-pats and curious gringos alike, held every Thursday.

10) Love a good festival? The helpful all-Mexican team at Mestizo are constantly promoting their wares via a series of festive culinary events all year long, so check the listings before you visit.

"Very rude management. Asked to leave the table when there were no queues. Then the manager was very arrogant and told us that if we wanted to leave a negative review we could do so. Poor customer service..." Which venue is this?
