Okay, this is gonna sound a little weird, but one thing I miss is Americanized Mexican food. Basically in the suburbs, there's always a token Mexican restaurant or two. In Indiana, it was El Rodeo. And everything tastes super amazing only because it is super unhealthy. And these places always have queso. God I miss cheese dip.
My flatmate Rosi (pictured in this post--the blonde), believe it or not, is half Mexican so I trusted her when she suggested this place. Mezcal has an breezy, authentic atmosphere. The prices are a bit steep, but it's definitely a treat to go.
I've had their nachos, their vegetarian enchiladas verdes, and a nibble of this potato taco thing. What's it called... ahhh, tacos dorados. All are excellent with the latter probably being my favorite. And they make a mean marg.
Your bog-standard margarita.
Tacos Dorados and guacamole.

London gets a lot of crap for not having good (or widely available) Mexican food. But if you're here, and looking for an incredible meal, I'd say this is definitely a place to check out. I know I'll be back. You can check out Mezcal's menu and hours on their Facebook.
