Real Mexican

Whilst waiting for a bus at on the Old Kent Road at the Elephant I noticed a sign for El Azteca, a Mexicam food shop and Catering Buisness, it is located down quite a scuzzy alley, called The Mews, which is between the old Cinema and the Railway Viaduct, past the K9 dogfood centre and an ornamental fish shop.

When you get there, you find a sparcly stocked shop consisting of directly imported bottles and jars of salsa, mole sauce and chiles, mostly Mexican but also some Texan products. I came away with several jars, for not much money and would seriously recomend Mrs Renfro's Gourmet Green Salsa. This is low down Chowhounding at its best !

I also picked up a flyer for the Burrito Mexican Grill at 19 Westbourne Grove, just round the corner from Whiteley's. " The first Genuine Mexican Fast Food in the UK ". If this is true ( and good) it could be important, any reports ?
