The area around East India Docks is a bit of a no man’s land, but bringing it some much-needed light, colour and flavour is Quilombero.
The menu is short and snappy, and we start with a hefty plate of charcuterie, including speck and mortadella [£12.50], accompanied by an intense Guinness mayo. We also try one of the starters from the evening menu, pig’s head pibil tacos [£6.50]; oh my God, they’re amazing – juicy, tender, spicy, oily (in a good way) – we love them.
Desserts are ace – we loved the baked apple with ricotta and caramel sauce [£5]. The dinner menu promises more delights, like salmon and pastas. Who knows, it might help turn this area into the next Shoreditch…
