Introducing Los Mochis: pan pacific restaurant and bar aims to be new Notting Hill hotspot

Los Mochis, a new restaurant and bar offering a pan-pacific mix of Mexican and Japanese art and cuisine, opens in Notting Hill on May 17.

Combining Mexican street food fun with Asian flavours and flair, the eatery is the brainchild of multi-award winning restaurateur Markus Thesleff. 

Open daily from 8am-midnight, an early look at the menu certainly has us salivating. For breakfast choose between a healthy Acai Bowl (banana, apple, chia seeds, cacao nibs, goji  berries, toasted coconut) or the more indulgent El Rey Taco (truffled scrambled eggs with roasted cheese).  

From lunch through to nightfall, there’s a 22-strong Taco Menu to explore. From Trailer Park Chicken TPC (fried chicken, guacamole, jalapeno-soy, habanero-gochujang, negi,  parsnip chips) to Miso Black Cod (avocado, chicory, ume miso salsa, jalapeno, sweet  potato crisp) and Yakiniku Steak (garlic-ginger steak, red pepper, sesame, negi), it looks like the traditional taco has been elevated to gourmet level.

The design is rustic Mexican with Japanese influences

Complementing Los Mochis’ taco line-up is a mouth-watering array of Ceviches, Tostadas, Tiraditos and Quesadillas. There’s also a selection of Maki Rolls inspired by the team’s extensive Japanese experience.  

And if you’ve room for desserts, find yourself torn between Churro Ice Cream Sando, Tarta de Merengue de Ancho  Chile Limón and Cajeta de Dulce de Leche Fondant. 

Los Mochis is lining up an impressive selection of small batch artisanal agaves. Hand-crafted signature cocktails include a Late-Night Martini (Ocho Blanco, lychees, vanilla, lemongrass, lime, jalapenos), the picante Mezcal Haze Paloma (Mezcal, grapefruit, lime, syrup, sparkling water) or the delightful Shinigami (Ciroc vodka, sake, fresh cucumber, jalapeno,  lemongrass, passionfruit sugar, apple juice). Reflecting its Japanese roots, you’ll also find a rich variety of sakes on the drinks menu too. 

First floor dining at Los Mochis

The  overall design of both the ground floor dining room and the first-floor lounge is rustic Mexican, with Japanese accents. A 20-cover terrace and full length bi-fold windows, also caters for al fresco eating, drinking and socialising. The restaurant will feature a mural façade created by Mexican artist Jorge Tellaeche.

Markus Thesleff is best known for his Middle East Okku venues, he has also launched such varied destinations as Sophie’s Café; roof top destination Cielo Sky Lounge; Casa  de Tapas and Riva, Dubai’s first independent standalone beach club
