The Finest Mexican in Marylebone at Mole

A few steps away from London's Bond Street, Mole is the latest offering from the team behind sister restaurant Cocochan. This cosy restaurant seats 50 and one can expect a fusion of both timeless and adventurous Mexican/South American dishes. Tastefully decorated with a living wall and hand drawn wallpaper by the great Timorous Beasties together with vibrant fabrics designed by the acclaimed Matthew Williamson and Christian Lacroix against the untreated brickwork, visiting this quirky Mexican gem is a must.

The menu itself offers an innovative concept on classic Mexican food, and 80% of the menu is gluten free. The Raw Bar at Mole serves both cured dishes and ceviche with sashimi graded fish. I'd highly recommend the Tuna tostada. There is also a vast Taco menu, the Chipotle beef short rib is mouthwateringly delicious, but do look out for the experimental tacos for the more daring diner, one can find dishes such as cod cheeks with squid ink foam.

For those wanting something more substantial, there are larger dishes such as chimichurri lamb cutlets or seabass fillets with an avocado cream. Anticuchos also feature on the menu, and I normally order the pork belly or the tiger prawns for the table or as a snack sized portion over lunch.

The drinks menu has been meticulously designed and features ten cocktails that have a South American influence containing only house made syrups and fruits that are freshly supplied daily. The Zapatista is a nice fruity choice with a passion fruit base.

Mole is open Mon-Sat; Noon - 11pm and Sunday; Noon - 10.30pm
