Mexican Restaurant
$$
“PDG = Pretty Damn Good. I've had a lot of margaritas, the good and the bad. So I know a great one and the one I had here made with Mescal instead of Tequila was damn good. The tortilla chips I ordered with salsa were a bit over cooked. And I've had better Chicken Tinga by my own hands but the Chicken Tinga burrito was still very good. And the Frijoles Charros were lovely. ”

Restaurant
“Another hidden gem in the heart of tourist London. This is minutes away from Charing Cross Station, and is underground like the Cork and Bottle. Not quite as much character as Cork and Bottle, but easier to get a table.”
