Location: MNKY HSE Mayfair
Menu: Latin American
Style: Bursting with fun and flavour. Dimly lit. Very cool chic vibe. The interiors really convey the latin spirt and playful mood of the venue with bold logo’s on the wall and toys on the table, the monkey on my glass was so cute. This place has everything you need for the evening is under one roof, dinner, drinks and a DJ all sorted.
Why I visited: The first time I went was for a birthday party and the same week I went back for a date night. This was the ideal spot for both of these occasions. Lots of sparklers and champagne popping.
What I ate and drank: Cocktails mostly. I tried a few, my favourite was the Pisco and Jasmine Sour served with a toasted marshmallow, so yummy and almost to pretty to drink. The starters come in small plates and are in sharing style, so it’s great chance to try lots of things if you go in a group. I love all things Latin so for me everything was good. However the standout dishes were the Yellowtail truffle ceviche, the baby chicken marinated in spicy jalapeño peppers and the tendersteam broccoli in sesame and olive oil.
Highlights: It’s safe to say this one of my favourite finds in London. Ceviche, tacos, tortillas, black cod, cocktails, DJs and no need to hop between several venues in one evening. Open until 4am weekends.
Would I go back: Absolutely. Great atmosphere, buzzy feel. The service and food was amazing. I’d be keen to try the lunchtime express menu next time Mon-Sat 12-3pm £26 per person.
