    Time Out Says…

    If I could, I’d have plunged my whole body into the queso fundido, a thick and pungent cheese-and-chorizo-spiked dip, and I enjoyed the crunch from beer-battered fish tacos with a lime-heavy relish that cut through it all. Less impressive were over-seasoned black bean tostadas and under-seasoned chorizo-and-squash flautas. And on the whole, everything could have done with a bit more chilli heat. But value for money couldn’t be faulted, and a lot of thought has gone into the list of Mexican drinks to wash it all down. So the search for excelente Mexican food in the capital continues. But top marks to Cielo Blanco for plying party-ready punters with cheap eats and tequila.

    Square Meal Says…

    Based on the Oaxaca barbacoa markets, Cielo Blanco is an offshoot of a Leeds-based original. Its kitchen offers a selection of sharing plates such as roast chicken with chilli chicken pot stew, tamales, grilled corn and spring onions; or cumin roast pork belly with baby back ribs and smoky sausage stew. Nevertheless, there are also burritos, empanadas and enchiladas aplenty to appease those who like to keep their food to themselves. A Margarita is the obvious choice of appetite sharpener on the drinks list, but if you’re on a health kick you’ll appreciate the range of cleansing and energising freshly pressed juices.

    Design My Night Says…

    Heralded for their social dining stance, and plethora of classic Mexican dishes, Cielo Blanco aren't just churning out the colourful and the flavourful, their back bar also hosts a top roster of tequila alongside punch cocktails. A dimly-lit basement space brimming with small plates and bold drinks, this is sure to be a smash in the heart of a location where the likes of Berber & Q are already storming the lead.
