The Husband and I decided to eat out for Sunday lunch for a change and settled on Lucha Libre in Wood Street.
It’s a ‘cool dude’ kinda place but you wouldn’t feel out of place no matter what your age. Its casual with funky music which doesn’t necessarily match the Mexican theme but its toe tapping non-the less. The staff are young and friendly and it’s all laid back and relaxed.
There’s not a vast menu but it still took a while to decide as everything sounds tasty. We ordered Homemade Tortilla Chips and Salsa and Ribs to share as our starter and for main we tried the new Lamb Birria.
The Tortilla chips arrived in an enamel mug with a serving of smooth salsa, the chips were extra crunchy, apparently they are fried twice to give them the extra crunch and then seasoned, the salsa was nice and spicy.
The ribs were not too long but really meaty served with lashings of sauce.
The Lamb Birria is a lamb stew with a thick, rich, subtly spiced sauce. It tastes like it’s been slow cooked for hours, just scrumptious. Its served with mini tortillas on the side.
We were told that this is a commonly made dish in Mexico, comparable to Scouse served here.
We would have had pudding as a number of them took our fancy but when it came down to ordering we were just too full. Given it was lunch time we stuck to soft drinks. It came to less than £20 in total which was cheap for lunch in the city centre and we’ll definitely be going back.
