Mexican-style churros specialist Aguamiel to launch in London's Covent Garden

Next month will see the launch of what is claimed to be London’s first Mexican churreria - a casual venue that majors on churros doughnuts.

Aguamiel is currently fitting out the former Siam Eatery site on Covent Garden’s Wellington Street and promises to deliver ‘the sweet side of Mexican cuisine'.

Churros will be served with a choice or either sugar or real cinnamon and sugar and one of three dips (dulce de leche, condensed milk, chocolate). An ice-cream stuffed churros will also be available. 

All products are made fresh in house, with the churros themselves 100% vegan, halal and made with organic flour.

As is traditional in Mexico City, portions of churros will be partnered with a drink. The total cost for a drink and portion of churros will be around £8.

The drinks offer will be focused on high quality coffee and specialist Mexican hot and cold drinks, including aguas fresca, horchata and spiced hot chocolate.

Aguamiel’s coffee will be supplied by Woman Power Zongolica, a single-origin coffee cultivated and processed by a group of 20 women in Veracruz, Mexico. 

The business - which hopes to expand if its first 'flagship' dessert bar is a success - has been created by Sarah Mi and chef Bernardo Pro. 

Pro has cooked in high-end restaurants in Southern California and Paris. The pair met at business school in London. 

Aguamiel is the latest in a series of contemporary ‘rias’ to launch in London over the last few years, joining empanadería De Nada,KOL’s Mezcaleria​ and Poon’s Wontoneria​ (among others).
