Northern Quarter bar and cellar cantina El Capo pays homage to South American street food with a 42-cover restaurant offering up both traditional dishes such as Chimichangas alongside the likes of Mi Corazon, pan-seared cows heart tapas and Los Pollos El Capo, super fiery chicken wings. If youâ€™re a spice lover then the pistol rating scovill-esque heat scale will be right up your street; try the Caliente Mierda chicken wings at a whopping six pistols! Authenticity is the name of the game. The restaurant is the brainchild of owner Pete Skelton who travelled and researched South America extensively in order to bring the finest bone fide Mexican street food and South American tapas dishes using the freshest ingredients and spices to the UK and this is not your ordinary Tex Mex. The décor is imaginative; walls are adorned with painted Day Of The Dead skulls and wrestlers faces surrounded by halos, the cantina is buzzing and food is served family style. From Thursday to Sunday at El Capo things get a little debauched! Enjoy live music and the biggest selection of tequilas in the North West.
El Capo Street Kitchen is a modern take on a traditional street food stall and suitable for both indoor and outdoor events. The street kitchen can go where trailers can't so is ideal for events where space is limited for a range of events from street food market, festivals, weddings, corporate & private events.
