Typical Mexican Food,  Mole, tamales..

Latin American Food in London has been increasing in popularity amongst not only Latin people, but people from Europe and around the world,they seem very keen when it comes to Latin Food. Specially in a very multicultural city, there is always an opportunity to try the Latin American cuisine.

And its even better to have a sample of food from around Latin America under one roof! Therefore there was an event the second this year, (1st one taking place at Kensington, please see other post) . This time The Bolivar Hall was the venue who hold the Latin American gastronomic fair.   

The Bolivar Hall, in central London, an excellent location near Warren Street, is always having different latin American events happening, form live Music, exhibitions, dance shows, etc.
