Cantina Laredo Review

Book a table at Cantina Laredo

Cantina Laredo is featured in these Guides:

Top 10 things we learned about Cantina Laredo:

1) It’s a Mexican restaurant located smack bang in between Covent Garden and Leicester Square tube stations – leading up to the Seven Dials area.

2) Cantina means bar and Laredo is a city in Texas, on the Rio Grande, located across from Nuevo Laredo in Mexico.

3) Although the restaurant is owned by a South African family, Nandos this ain’t. Cantina Laredo serves traditional and authentic dishes, concocted by Executive Chef, Reuban, who grew up in the Mexican ranches.

4) You must, must, MUST order the guacamole en molcajete which is freshly prepared at the table and served with tortilla crisps. You can choose to add tomatoes, red onions, coriander, jalapenos and spices. As well seeing that the dip is fresh and not from a pre-made container, you find out just how easy it is to make guacamole yourself.

5) Skirt steak is from the diaphragm of the cow. The restaurant serve it grilled, adebo-marinated and wrapped around a fresh poblano pepper stuffed with prawns, mushrooms, onions and cheese. And yes, the steak is British sourced.

6) If you don’t like your margheritas to be messed with - ie flavoured - order The Purist. It’s made with Casa Ambar Blanco tequila and served with salt all along the glass rim and a wedge of lime. Those of you not up for tequila (in a Mexican restaurant? Sacrilege!) then the next best drink is the mojito.

7) Cantina Laredo has strayed away from the stereotypical Mexican mezcal bar look. No bright and blocked colours like Wahaca. Instead it’s gone for light wood panelling, sturdy and varnished tables and leather upholstered booths. If American Psycho were set in Mexico, Cantina Laredo would be the equivalent to Dorsia restaurant – although I’m sure staff are more obliging to book you a table.

8) For a night of dining out with friends, family and work colleagues in the heart of Central London, Cantina Laredo is the perfect choice. Ditto for double dates and Patrick Bates/Paul Owen wannabes.

9) After work or post theatre drinks are popular here. Try the Casa Rita – a frozen margherita. We recommend you try the pomegranate version.

10) Mexican brandy butter is better than our British Christmas version. Serve it with a chocolate fudge brownie or a Mexican apple pie on a sizzling skillet.

Food

Gourmet Mexican dishes - made using fresh ingredients, and sauces from scratch e.g. the palate-freshening ceviche (a traditional dish of tiger prawns, grey mullet and bay scallops, marinated in lime juice and served with a selection of vegetables and spices), and the hearty dish of Camaron Poblano Asada (a classic Mexican poblano pepper filled with a delicious mixture of sautéed tiger prawns, mushrooms, onions and cheese and wrapped with a grilled skirt steak on a bed of chimichurri sauce).

Drinks

An extensive drinks list is available, with wines selected by Richard Bampfield Master of Wines to match the fiery flavours, tempting cocktails, and of course, a range of over 30 of the world’s very best 100% blue agave tequilas.
