Boho Mexica

Tucked away on Commercial Street in Shoreditch is a little Mexican restaurant that, if you didn't know any better, you’d probably walk right past without a second glance. Boho Mexica, one of my favourite little restaurants in London. Last week one of my oldest friends was meeting my boyfriend for the first time, and I wanted to go somewhere nice but relaxed – I couldn’t think of anywhere better, so after a few drinks at the Light bar, off we went.

Go in and you’re confronted by a cool dining space, dimly lit with wooden tables and tall white draper candles dripping their wax down the sides of old wine bottles, flickering their light against Spanish cartoon posters and old adverts along the walls.

There's a slightly brighter-lit bar to the right, with a cosy restaurant space at the back. We hadn’t booked, and it was busy, but the friendly waiting staff let us eat in the bar. If you’re a bigger group I would always recommend booking, as it can get busy. We perched on high bar stools, chatting and people-watching while they brought us our menus.

The cocktail menu is sublime, and pretty reasonably priced for London, although on this occasion I just really fancied some wine!

And then, of course, there is the food. I really could eat the entire menu. On this occasion I started with the Alitas Pa Volar - chicken wings. Maybe not the most traditional of Mexican dishes, but something I love all the same! They are amazing – soft chicken with thick, crunchy batter, not too greasy but not too dry, complimented with an incredible yet not too spicy chipotle sauce.

At this point, my camera selfishly gave out, so I can’t show you a photo of the other starters, nor the excellent quesadillas I had with homemade chorizo verde. What I can do is thoroughly recommend you check it out, because I really have enjoyed it every time I’ve been.


I guess I’ll just have to go back and get some more photos for you…! Have any of you been to Boho Mexica? Recommend your favourite Mexican restaurants to me - I just can't get enough of them!

  4. I've been recommended to go here! I don't really know much about Mexican food but I went to Casa Negra in Shoreditch last week and wasn't impressed. This one sounds much better! :)
