A bolt hole of Mexican dreams on Tariff Street, El Capo is all sorts of sexy, from the burgers down to the sweetcorn fritters. And it's not just the food that will have you head over heels, the downstairs is a Day of the Dead style hangout, while red neon signs will light the way up for dancing the night away.
Mexican and Tequila Bars Manchester
Tequila, lime and salt, a combination so brilliant that several Manchester bars serve it like water, but there's more to this central American country than everyone's favourite shot. From nachos piled high with refried beans and cheese through to street food, these menus are showcasing the best Mexican food in Manchester.
Not quite Mexico, but not far off, Revolucion De Cuba is bringing a taste of Central America to Deansgate. The lively restaurant serves delicious burritos and enchiladas, alongside a hearty vegan offering, and a special tequila shot menu.
With Manchester's largest mezcal and tequila selection, Crazy Pedro are the go-to when it comes to shenanigans in the city. The wacky bar might not be very authentic but it's all sorts of fun, from the frozen margaritas through to the pizza nachos - that's chopped up pizza on top of nachos to you and me.
From Mexico to Manchester via California, Luck, Lust, Liquor & Burn is all about huge Tex Mex flavours. Their quirky menu includes the likes of the Ariana Grande Burrito (a vegan mix of tempeh, avocado and hot sauce) and cheeseburger tacos, alongside an enviable choice of margaritas.
The Spanish and Mexican theme runs deep in Sandinista. They boast a huge selection of cocktails including a variety of tequilas to sink you under the bar and onto the floor. Candlelit by night, its subtle and cultured decor makes it a cosy and comfortable venue for a first date.
