FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Take a publishing house, add great food and drink, and what do you get? The answer is Malpaso, an extension of the editorial company of the same name. With a focus on fresh, quality produce, this restaurant has its roots in traditional Mexican cuisine, celebrating authentic flavours and serving everything from breakfast to supper. Unpretentious and accessible, Malpaso is tailored towards the customer, creating a space in which to feel at home. Downstairs, a bar looking out over the street offers an extensive list of cocktails—don’t miss happy hour, from 5pm to 8pm daily. Upstairs, a lounge area, complete with sofas and leafy plants, leads into a colourful dining room where you can sample the menu of Mexican favourites, which includes fajitas, tacos and tequila flambéed mussels. Nods to Malpaso’s literary heritage can be seen throughout: a stretch of wall displays artwork referencing a particular book, changing every few months, whilst works from the editorial house line the walls. Food and literature may seem like an unusual combination at first, but Malpaso have created a space in which to enjoy both.
