Though the name initially seems to convey an impressive degree of chutzpah, Exquisito! actually just means ‘delicious’ in Spanish, a nomenclature that, in this case, happens to be apt. Latin American food is their specialty and Peruvian and Bolivian flavours dominate the menu. The colourful, orange-walled room is decorated with bright posters and the proprietor’s photos of his travels while the Latin music adds to the convivial atmosphere. It’s a lively, vibrant place that attracts a young-ish crowd. In addition to numerous belly-pleasing dishes they serve Uruguayan beer and a good range of tequila. There’s an open air terrace that really comes into its own on long warm nights as people either linger there with a drink or gear up for a night of clubbing at the nearby Funhouse.
