Mezcal is a Mexican tapas style 'canteen' situated on Glasgow's Hope Street. A wee nugget of knowledge, Mezcal is actually a Mexican distilled spirit made from the agave plant. All those Mexican vibes hit you as soon as you walk through the door.. Day of the dead skulls, Mexican pictures/themed decor which is rather cultured and colourful. The piercing neon lights catch your eye too, which makes this place quite quirky. Somewhere to go for cocktails as well as a bite to eat.

To start we ordered cocktails.. A Frozen Margarita and The Paloma. Tasty and refreshing 🍹

Homemade Guacamole with Tortilla chips to start. The tortilla chips were just rather ordinary, the guac was a good blend of flavours. Next up I had the Dorados taco, fried chicken, iceberg lettuce, guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo and coriander. This for me was average. The taco was like a wrap, not a lot of flavour at all and the chicken was dried up and not juicy. It comes presented on paper too which just rips while you cut into it. I also ordered Chilli Cheese Fries on the side. Just ordinary 'oven' style skinny chips. The chilli was tasty though with a bit of a spicy kick!
My friend is vegetarian so she had The Calabaza taco, courgette, corn, tomato, coriander and sweet potato puree. She described this as tasty and pleasing on the eye.

Overall, I do think this is a quirky little place to eat and drink and visually it's lovely but some things need a little tweeking. Value isn't that bad as it's tapas but the service just wasn't up to my standards. The food for me wasn't anything to write home about 🤷‍♀‍ I've experienced much better Mexican food in Glasgow. We do pride ourselves on honesty folks 💁‍♀‍👌 maybe I'll revisit to try something different!
