Make way for the Mexican at London's Restaurant Festival

For details of these and others, see map.
In addition, this year's festival food market at Old Spitalfields Maket is showcasing Mexican food. A number of Mexican food producers will have stands, as well as several of the restaurants listed above so now's the time to stock up on all those hard to find ingredients! The market will be open next week, between the following times:
Mon 11th, Tues 12th, Wed 13th, Fri 15th and Sat 16th Oct: 12.00-6.00pm
Sun 17th Oct: 9.00-6.00pm
And if all that doesn't sound like a good enough reason to indulge, next week is also London Cocktail Week, with many of London's best bars serving up a whole plethora of special cocktails. If margaritas are you thing, then there's certainly no shortage on offer, as well as many other delicous concoctions. How about the Mexican Passion Mojito (Tapatio, lime juice, fresh passion fruit, mint and agave nectar) at Cafe Pacifico or the Olmeca Altos Paloma (Olmeca Altos tequila, lime juice and Ting) at El Camino?
