Historical version 8 of Mexicali, W1F 8RG (view current version)

Joining the many eateries of Soho, Mexicali enters the increasingly crowded market for Mexican street food in London. Their branding pushes the Californian "freshness" angle.

They get praise for their burritos on the net, but Ewan had the quesadilla, which was plentiful and came with a slightly bland salsa, sour cream, corn chips, salad and guacamole (this last was 50p extra). Corn chips were a bit bland and clearly not made on site. However, the takeaway boxes are good and sturdy.

They do have some space inside for sit-down eating down the back, tables crammed closely together, but again the focus is on the takeaway crowd.

Ewan's verdict: I'm not sure this stands up to the plentiful competition for Mexican street food in the capital (none of which obviously compares to the best available in America), but it's reasonable enough value.
