Tia Patty makes it with a lot of love. We all know grandmas are the best cooks in the family and our granny Amparito is the best cook of the entire family. Aunt Patty, our head chef, learned everything from abuelita Amparito, and she has brought that with her to boho mexica. Enough said . . .
We like Mexican history at boho, and brought a piece of it with us to London. Original Mexican newspapers from the 50s, ads from the 30s, film posters from various decades paper the walls, pillars and bars of boho mexica.
The dining room’s Pièce de résistance is cousin Alejandro’s vision of blending Mexico’s landmarks along with London’s. It took a lot of work to realise but we think it was worth it.
Tunes that span decades and every continent should keep the uncomfortable silences away. You have as much chance of listening to Aki Kojima’s “Sakura Japan”, Los Mustangs “Submarino Amarillo” or Grover Washington Jr. “knucklehead” to some Francisco Canaro, el Pirincho – think the best music from around the globe you may have never heard of from the 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond . . . We must admit we are a bit biased to some of those romantic latin sounds.
