Offering dishes that are as light and pleasant as its West London surroundings. Peyotito is saving Mexican cuisine from its stodgy reputation
Words Annie May Byrne-Noonan
Peyotito, a high end Mexican eatery, glows warm and ready for its supper service. Nestled amongst the boutiques of Kensington Park Road. Its subdued lighting welcomes guests into the golden glow of a Mexican evening. Whilst its jazzy bass reminds revellers of its prime West London location. Its laid back vibe attracts diners who want to eat and drink at a Latin pace.
The staff keep up a Mayfair standard of service as we order two house Margaritas that are fresh and bitter. From here on in we knew we could relax and let the staff carry us through the evening. We start with razored yellowfin tuna with a creamy spread of guacamole. Additionally flakey sea bream in featherlight tacos provided another appetite charger. Next came scallops served in a transparent chilli jus. Followed by razor sliced octopus in a delicate tomato salsa. Another great addition was a mini bottle of Mezcal. That our charming waiter assured us was potent enough to wake the dead.
Above all Peyotito is a place to indulgence in the senses. No matter your preferences, whether its seafood, meat or veggie dishes for supper. Offering well thought out and delicate plates of food. Above all, it is the food that matters to Peyotito. And the food is great. There can be no doubt that Peyotito is helping to change the face of popular Mexican cuisine. Its zesty fresh dishes are an ode to the sunny climes of the Mexican motherland. So for a delicious, yet delicate feast head to this chic Notting Hill eatery.
