So Dos Hermanos wrote about a new Mexican place that recently opened near Covent Garden:

Mexican food is somewhat lacking in London, so we wandered over there last night to try it out. (We started with a few pints in the Harp along the road — Belhaven fruit beer, very nice.


We had to wait a little while for a table, but the front of house guy handled this well, making sure we didn't feel abandoned, and bringing us some drinks while we waited.

The food — well, it could have been great. It really could have. But they've apparently made the decision to steer clear of too much chilli or salt in the food. Dos Hermanos did warn of this, and they were right. Almost all of it lacked flavour, and it could so easily have been remedied. Like Dos Hermanos, we brought this up with the staff, and were told that it was on purpose. A shame.

The cocktails were good though. The apple flavour in my mojito was quite fantastic.
