A sign proclaims 'mucha salsa, mucho funk' at this Portobello Road Mexican. There seems to be a lot more to it, though, with a long food menu combining traditional Mexican flavours with Tex-Mex staples, and a varied cocktail list that goes big on mezcal and margaritas. 

The food list ranges from nachos, burritos, tacos and quesadillas to cazuelas of pork, beef, chicken, lamb, prawns and vegetables. There's a culinary concession to Mexican authenticity with a selection of ceviche - think cured sea bass with chilli, black onion seeds, shallots, radish and coriander, or octopus with salsa Mexicana, tomato sauce and avocado.

A short wine list focuses on South America - including bottles from Mexico - but this place is mostly about the cocktails. Classic and house margaritas do brisk business alongside mojitos, caipirinhas, daiquiris, pisco sours and pina coladas. The selection of mezcal and tequila impresses, too. 

And as for that 'mucho salsa' and 'mucho funk'? All courtesy of DJ Flex at the weekends.
