Like many people I had given up on finding a decent Mexican restaurant in London, then we found cantina Laredo in theatre land. A large restaurant with 200 covers or so...great maitre d - wily Los South African boy that really knows his job and tells us he's been there since they opened two years ago...apparently a franchise, so maybe more to open in the uk
Winning formula starts with freshly made guacamole , made at the table (almost everyone had this...great theatre!) which means you can have the full offering of jalapeño peppers, which gives it a really nice kick...just hot enough
I had the steak asada - thin steak wrapped a round a large green pepper stuffed with scrummy mushrooms, chees, onions etc...fantastic...she indoors had cascabel tacos (chicken) again very tasty....great Chilean wine ...whole bill under £100 for two....bring on more authentic Mexican restaurants
They take some reservations, but leave two thirds of the rest for walk-ins, which is highly intelligent
