Finding quality food in unique spaces that are relaxed and interesting can be tricky. One great restaurant that ticks all the right boxes though is The Mockingbird. Located on Newington Road, this place has an amazing menu full of mouthwatering tapas to choose from. If you are craving paella or delicious patatas bravas with a cool Sangria to wash it down, then this is the place for you. The staff are very helpful and chill music in the background adds to the relaxed atmosphere.
Mezcal Cantina has beautiful authentic Mexican food menu. The colorful storefront makes it impossible to miss when walking on Kingsland High Street. Though not the cheapest of places, when savouring churros, fajitas and chicken enchiladas, you won't be thinking about the price due to how delicious the food is. Make sure to take a look at the cocktail menu as well and try and make it here during happy hour.
