Cinco de Mayo…

OK, so it’s fair to say that Mexico isn’t exactly having the best of luck right now. Over 700 cases of Swine Flu have been confirmed so far, and whilst the rate of newly discovered cases is slowing, the consequent drop in tourism is having a devastating effect on the countries economy.

However, it’s not all doom & gloom. In Mexico, the 5th of May, or Cinco De Mayo is a highly celebrated date in the calendar, commemorating the Mexican army’s defeat of the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862 Benito's Hatdespite being hugely outnumbered, under the leadership of their beloved president Benito Juarez.

So while it may not be the best time to visit Mexico to join in the celebrations… it is definitely a fabulous time to get yourselves down to Benito’s Hat in Goodge Street this week. Included in both Time Out and The Independants Top 50 Cheap Eats, and rated 4* by the Metro’s hugely respected Marina O’Loughlin, Benito’s Hat  serves delicious burritos, tacos, salads and soups assembled in front of diners from the freshest and tastiest ingredients available.
