The UK's capital is a melting pot for food cultures from all over the world, so it was inevitable that Tejano cooking would arrive, sooner or later. Tejanos come from Texas but have Mexican roots, and they have also developed a highly distinctive style of cooking. Discover why their creations have spread across the world by checking out the finest Tex-Mex restaurants London has to offer on the Quandoo website.
When you think of Mexican cuisine, tortillas, chilli and nachos come to mind. Well, Tejano food is similar, but different. For one thing, London's Tex-Mex restaurants will add more cheese to their nachos and fajitas than their Mexican counterparts, and they tend to spice up their dishes more too, not just with chilli, but with cumin as well. As you'd expect from Texan cuisine, Tex-Mex chefs in London restaurants will be experts at cooking beef, whether its for steaks or tortilla wraps, so if you love meat they are a great place to dine.
However, at most of London's Tex-Mex restaurants, there's only really one star of the show: their own unique recipe for chilli. Chilli is a Texan tradition. Communities get together at cook-offs to grade the creations of expert chilli chefs, and to show off their ability to handle volcanic spice levels. Well, at London's best Tex-Mex restaurants, you can do the same. Wherever you go, you'll find different levels of chilli spice, and vegetarian options to compete with beef. When you need to warm yourself up, there's nothing better than an authentic bowl of chilli.
When you have an hour or so to spare, why not book a table at a Tejano eatery in the capital? You'll find plenty of Mexican-American fusion places in the West End, Westminster, Camden and Shepherd's Bush, so there's bound to be a convenient option. Relax before a show, entertain work contacts or meet old friends for tequila cocktails, tacos and burritos. Whatever the occasion, you can book Tex-Mex restaurants in London whenever you need to on the Quandoo website.
