Review of Los Mochis London City

Nestled in the heart of Liverpool Street, just a stone’s throw from Liverpool Station, Los Mochis offers a delightful dining experience. This newly opened restaurant on the top floor, launched in May, boasts a secluded terrace with spectacular views of the capital—perfect for enjoying cocktails in the sun. Inside, there’s a private dining room ideal for meetings or special occasions, and a chef’s private dining room featuring live cooking. Guests can also enjoy a sit-up sushi bar where they can order from the menu, take the chef’s recommendations, or request their preferred sushi.

The venue features elegant decor, with unique booth seating framing the stunning views, marble tables, and wooden floors. At the centre, the bar dazzles with a beautiful display of drinks. The ambience is relaxing, with calming music, dark tones, and an abundance of natural light offering panoramic views of London. The extensive range of cocktails, drinks, and food options makes it a perfect spot for any occasion.

Los Mochis offers a unique fusion of Mexican and Japanese cuisines. We opted for the tasting menu, consisting of ten courses, each course connected and nodding to the respective cultures. The journey began with freshly made guacamole and nachos. The second course featured teriyaki duck and hoisin sauce on crispy rice, adding an extra crunch. Following this was salmon with wasabi, drizzled with soy sauce and a gentle kick of coriander cress. Next, we enjoyed seabass ceviche with shiso-truffle soy; the seabass was tender and juicy, complemented by lemon and lime sauce and crowned with mint cress. The tender black cod skewers coated in citrus ume miso and topped with pickled red onion were a personal highlight.

The fifth course, cucumber avocado maki, featured cucumber coated in rice with toasted sesame seeds, drizzled with jalapeno salsa verde, and topped with avocado and cucumber chunks. This was followed by spicy hiramasa maki, perfectly rolled yellowtail fish with avocado, sesame seeds, jalapeno, and mint cress. The chicken tacos were a delightful presentation of crispy fried chicken on a bed of guacamole with jalapeno barbecue sauce, topped with sweet, toasted parsnips. The grass-fed sesame-soy steak, presented similarly to a taco, came with a rich chili-ginger honey sauce on cabbage and guacamole, beautifully garnished with radishes, mint cress, and toasted sesame. The final course was a sharing panna cotta made of purple yam, double cream, and Madagascan vanilla, accompanied by oat crumble, purple yam dusted meringues, blueberries, raspberries, edible flowers, and toasted coconut.

The service at Los Mochis was impeccable, with attentive staff ensuring each course arrived in a tapas-style format. The beautifully presented food at Los Mochis is a feast for the eyes as well as the palate, each dish crafted with an artistic flair that enhances the dining experience. Our tasting menu was complemented by a Riesling white wine selected by the sommelier, which was refreshing and sweet, perfectly accompanying each course.

For anyone looking to add a rooftop restaurant to their London itinerary, Los Mochis is a must-visit!
