Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

El Camion is Mexican-themed but, unlike the kitsch Baja Californian restaurant above – where you can corral generous burritos, tortas and tacos – it’s more a discerning basement drinking den where Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) iconography sits above a series of snugs.

The drinks are overseen by maestro mixologist Dick Bradsell, there’s swift and smiling table service, and it’s open late. With 38 different bottles covering blanco (white), reposado (‘rested’) and añejo (‘aged’), it’s a temple to tequila. You can sip the better ones neat, but it’d be remiss to ignore the marvellous margaritas, of which Tommy’s Margarita is the pick.

Mezcal is also well represented, alongside several rum daiquiris and cachaça-driven batidas; bottled Mexican beers include Pacifico Clara, Bohemia and Negra Modelo.
