Leeds favourite Cielo Blanco Cha Cha Cha’s down to London!

Cielo Blanco has been raved about by our writers based in Leeds for what feels like forever. This has made the London squad incredibly jealous, but no longer!

House of Coco were delighted to be invited down to support Cielo Blanco’s new outpost on the street of dreams that is Exmouth Market for their Cinco de Mayo opening party. In-between incredible cocktails made by skilled sugar skulled skeletons we leapt on the new team members bringing round Cielo Blanco’s social eating street food.


Inspired by the vibrant baracoa markets of Oaxaca, Mexico, the simplest sounding dish (such as a sweet potato taco) will transport you to South America and has us dancing in our seats. And a few more of the fantastic Mexican beer and tequila selection would have had us dancing on the tables.

Their exciting menu paired with great attention to detail in the decor makes Cielo Blanco a welcome addition to London’s burgeoning Mexican food scene. As the national obsession with spice and avocados shows no end, we predict big things for their Exmouth Market restaurant and can’t wait to come back and grab a sharing platter with some girlfriends.

Only one question remains, if this is the party they put on for Cinco de Mayo, where do we sign up for Dia de los muertos?

Cielo Blanco opens 6 May 2016 at 55-57 Exmouth Market, London EC1R 4QL They’ll be offering 50% off drinks from 9-20 May 2016.
