Mad about Mexican!


A Second Serving reviews Cielo Blanco in Exmouth Market...

This recently opened taco and tequila inspired restaurant has a relaxed yet vibrant vibe and is set in the ideal location, just 10 minutes walk from Angel tube. Describing itself as, 'bringing Mexican social eating to London,' Cielo Blanco focuses on tapas-style sharing plates, which means it's the perfect place to meet up with a group of mates and get stuck in. The menu is varied and large, the staff are super friendly and the baby-back ribs are TO DIE FOR. Go, go, go!

Hungry now?

Why go? 

If you're looking for flavoursome Mexican cooking, (which isn't just a greasy burrito slathered in cheese), then this is the place for you. We went for the street food experience deal which meant we could share six items for just £13.50 per person. This is unbelievably good value as the portions are huge and really hit the 'I need a Mexican meal right now' spot. The chicken tinga tacos came with guacamole and some really zingy slaw and the ground beef quesadilla had some crunchy chargrilled onions and jalapeno ketchup on top. We also tried the veggie wild mushroom and garlic flauta (a crispy rolled corn taco) as well as the achiote-marinated baby-back ribs. These are a must - we had a big portion but I could have eaten even more. Service was top notch and we were even given a shot of tequila 'to get the full Mexican experience.' I'll definitely be going back.

Instagram worthy pics!


I genuinely can't find one. Food, service and surroundings all got a ten out of ten from me - I just wish there was a Cielo Blanco closer to my neck of the woods.

Tequila makes you happy
