I came across Santo Remedio completely by accident, purely because I’ve walked by it a few times and thought it looked cosy. It was a happy accident though, as Santo Remedio has appeared on several lists of the best Mexican restaurants in London. I adore Mexican food so this is my idea of a good night.
Last night we gave it a try and actually managed to get a table (it’s been difficult in the past). Santo Remedio is beautifully lit and highly inviting. The decor is gorgeous as well.
So the food…every dish we ate was excellent, from the tacos to the enchiladas and the octopus (an interesting riff on standard Mexican food). The guacamole was divine.
There was only one dessert I could possibly have- churros! I’m a churros- fanatic, seriously. My friend ordered the banana bread, so that we got to try both. Both desserts were delicious.
Apparently this is the most authentic Mexican restaurant outside Mexico. Next time I want to try the hibiscus flower enchiladas.
