Chilango tops Zagat's Mexican category for 2nd year running
Last week saw the results of the 2012 Zagat Restaurant Guide, compiled from the ratings and reviews of 5497 diners across 1187 restaurants in Greater London.
Even though the average price of a meal went up a staggering 6% (from ₤40.84 to ₤43.40), Londoners are eating out more often – an average of 2.4 times per week - the first rise in 3 years.
When it comes to Mexican food, Chilango was once again named the best Mexican restaurant, as well as topping the 'Bust Buy' category. Mexican food also came eight in the top ten favourite cuisines, with 4% of diners voting it as their preferred choice of cuisine.
For the full results, see this link. Here are a couple of interesting stats which caught my eye:
only 35% of Zagat reviewers are female (being one myself)...
over 50% still think it's rude to use a mobile phone (whether talking, tweeting or texting) in a restaurant.
I wonder how these compare with cities elsewhere?!
