Mezcal and ceviche are on the menu, and trust us, you do not want to miss out. With four original mezcal-based cocktails to choose from, our pick is the Insurgent Fire, a fiesty blend of hellfire bitters, muddled chilli, lime, pineapple juice and Peloton de la Muerte that will start your evening off with a bang.

Moving onto food, there are THREE PLATES FOR £20 ON OFFER. If that doesn’t convince you to make treat yourself Tuesday a thing, we don’t know what will. There are four fish-based dishes on the menu and one veggie, and we went for the Hamachi Tiradito, the MNKY Ceviche and the Tuna Tartare. If we had to pick a favourite, we’d of course pick the namesake MNKY Ceviche, bringing together an incredible fusion of flavours. Fresh and salty seabass ceviche worked together seamlessly with a hint of spice coming from the aji amarillo and a touch of sweetness offered by the purple sweet potato, creating a wonderfully well-balanced dish.

Save room for dessert because the menu here is fantastic. Classic sweet lovers will adore the chocolate fondant, complete with a red monkey printed on the chocolate paper garnish. Accompanied by a perfect ball of ice-cream atop a crumbly base with a burnt sugar topper, the combination of textures only added to this satisfyingly rich dessert. If you’re an avocado lover like us, you absolutely cannot go past the dessert featuring a painstakingly constructed sweet avocado. Featuring a chocolate outer shell, avocado ice-cream inner and rich chocolate and fudge centre stone, it seemed almost a shame to ruin this perfect masterpiece just to eat it! On the plate is also a zesty sorbet and popping candy, once again creating a playful medley of sensations in your mouth as you enjoy this dessert.
