We have always heard the catch phrase: “You’re only as good as your last…. i.e. fashion collection … directed movie … or even Enchilada!” So, I have decided to take that to heart and put my thoughts of local haunts in virtual space to let my customer base know of some great and not-so-great restaurants, venues and children’s play establishments we have frequented in London. A little more know-how can't hurt, right?
I live near Nottinghill and my husband and I love Mexican food and its culture! We have tried a lot of restaurants all over and have only found a few that really stand out as exceptional. One of them is Crazy Homies, owned by Tom Conran, on Westbourne Park Road W2. Tom is also the owner of Lucky Seven’s next door, conveniently, they share the bar and the kitchen above and below.
Apart from its über-cool décor and music, Crazy Homies is one of my favourite places serving some of the best Mexcian food in London – HANDS DOWN! The food is great, ambience no where to be matched, and the margaritas are original, i.e. the ‘Skinny Agave’ made with Agave Honey instead of Triple-Sec – it’s lovely.
The food at Crazy Homies was inspired by street vendors and local Taquerias throughout Mexico. Their 4-dip-dipping platter is scrumptious and a great starter with puréed Smokey Chipotle Peppers dip, Tomatillo dip, Salsa, and fresh Guacamole served with chips. But it’s the enchiladas that get us every single time! The chicken is always perfectly cooked with an original blend of spices and they’re mild enough for children!
We even recently watched the World Cup match Netherlands vs Uruguay and the experience felt like we were in a private club - service, food and all. The service is impeccable, their staff is attentive and more importantly, knowledgeable of their food, beverages and establishment.
Visit Crazy Homies at 125 Westbourne Park Road, W2 5QL, 0207 727 6771. Viva Mexico!
