Mestizo

MESTIZO

Last month, Mestizo, Mexican Restaurant & Tequila Bar, celebrated Día de la Independencia (The Mexican Independence Day) with a special gastronomic week. One of the most traditional, authentic Mexican restaurants in London, the week was designed by Mestizio to showcase the diversity and depth of Mexican food by curating a regionally inspired menu that took guests on a culinary journey around Mexico. For this purpose, the menu included such dishes as pescadillas from Guerrero, to a warming Pollo con Mole from the highlands of Puebla, to the Mexican lamb stews from Birria.

Gastronomic Week at Mestizo is long over, but it was still a good opportunity to experience one of the most authentic Mexican dining experiences one can get in London. Mestizo first opened its doors in 2004, and has long been one of the leading ambassadors of Mexican food in London, often championing this diverse cuisine through special gastronomic events such as the Gastronomic Week seen last month and other events organised in conjunction with the Mexican Embassy. Moreover, Mestizo, has the largest tequila selection in the UK (some 260+) and is proud to share the Mexican’s love of its iconic national spirit through the various tequila Masterclasses, tequila tasting experiences or ‘Tequila and food pairing experiences’ at Mestizo.

Prime Burger – Euston

PRIME BURGER – EUSTON

Last week I attended the launch party of Prime Burger’s new branch at Euston Station. Located on the first floor of the station, it is a burger joint that specialises in creating efficient, diverse, and high quality burgers that you can eat-in or takeaway. Their menu extends from breakfast to lunch and dinner, and their policy clearly states that all burgers must be done within 8 minutes or the customer has a right to claim a refund.

Prime Burger was well-lit with Brit-pop blasting and the smell of burgers permeating throughout the restaurant. The place is really clean and has a small number of tables that fit 4-5 people. The was an outdoor sitting area and the large window seats were appropriately designed for those who wanted to keep an eye on their train departures as they ate.

That night I tried two types of burgers, the Prime Truffle Burger (£8.95) and the Crazy Larry (£7.25), as well as the garlic butter fries, with and without cheese (£3.50). The Prime Truffle Burger was the winner as it had a rich tomato sweetness, with a tiny hint of the truffle aioli and truffle cheese. The creamy texture of that, with the prime cut patty and fluffy bread produced a good balance of soft, sweet and savoury.

The Garlic Butter fries were delivered freshly hot. It didn’t have a strong garlic taste, and the chives on top didn’t add too much them. I later tried the same fries with cheese on top and this really elevated the taste. According to the menu, the garlic butter fries are listed without cheese, but I would definitely ask for cheese to be added.

My spice tolerance is above average, but the ‘Crazy Larry’ burger has got to be the spiciest burger I have ever had in my life. The burger consisted of fresh chilli jalapeños, hot chilli salsa, onion, mayo, tomato and lettuce. One bite into it, and my lips looked like Angelina Jolie’s. They felt flaming hot, but somehow I wanted more. A quarter of the way into the burger I had to stop, with the help of chips and water, the spiciness calmed down a bit more. In my opinion, if you need to get full to the brim and have a high spice tolerance, go for it. But order it as a meal (with fries and a drink) because it is more powerful than you’d think.

Overall, Prime Burger is great for those on the go and willing to spend over £10 on burger and chips. It’s an ideal pit stop for a delicious burger before enduring a long ride on the train, and less of the type of place to linger and have a calm and long conversation with friends. As it is in a prime location, there may be times when it will be busy so be prepared for a lot of noise. As for the food, the Prime Truffle burger is definitely aa unique and great if you want something cool, fancy, and different amongst the other cafes and food places within Euston station.
