Homeliness and comfort go hand in hand, only at Paladar they also throw in a mean margarita and some of London’s juiciest cochinita pibil. The queer-owned Latin American bar and restaurant in Elephant and Castle is something of a vibes merchant. The walls are covered with knickknacks, the staff emit a happy glow that you’ll want to absorb via osmosis, and the drinks flow inside the restaurant and their hush-hush courtyard. The menu spans dinky jackfruit empanadas with a smoky serrano chilli sauce, to ceviche and tostadas, to purple corn churros. Don’t miss the cochinita pibil—four gloriously tender pulled pork tacos that you won't want to share.
