2 for 1 at Cafe Mexicali

Mexicali, is a metropolitan region situated right on the U.S - Mexico border, adjacent to its sister city Calexico, California, much like San Diego-Tijuana. Mexicali also has the distinction of being the northernmost city in Latin America.

This highly vibrant, historical melting pot of cultures is what Cafe Mexicali is about. Using the finest ingredients to celebrate and share mouth-watering (or numbing) Mexican cuisine with friends and family, accompanied with mind-blowing cocktails from all around the globe!

And it just so happens that they are located in one of London's most vibrant areas, Finsbury Park. At Mexicali they are ready to party, dine, and wine (and cerveza) seven days of the week. So why don't you drop by and say Hola!

Important Information

Please note: The tastecard discount only applies to The appetizers, main course and desserts section of the menu.

  • M said: "Not Bad, But Use To Be Better
    I use to love Mexicali, but has changed from when it first opened. The portions have gotten smaller and prices have gone up for drinks specially.
    I still like to treat myself to some Mexicali, specially now with the card (worth it with the card).
    But as much as I love to go for cocktails, you never really know how they will be served. I’ve had both the best and worst cocktails there. "

    Otherwise it is a great place good food, but if they do not want to participate then do not lure peoples ways like this.

    There is a great Italian place right next to it and they have great food and steak as well on nice prices, although no tastecard option:) "

    " Good Food, Big portions.

    This was our second visit to Cafe Mexicali, the first time we didn't have a great experience, the food was not nice but yesterday we gave it a second go.

    We had Nachos grande with chilli beef to start.

    I had the combination grill (chicken wings, steak, ribs, lamb chop) and my wife had the lamb cutlets.

    We are happy with went back for a second visit, I am sure we will be back in the next couple of weeks.

    Great food and good service. "
