Tamayo is "Mexican Jim, but not as you know it". Not a burrito in sight, but instead a simple, well designed dining room serving genuine Mexican fare. Freshly made chips are served with either good guacamole or a lively salsa, and the quesadillas are a very different affair to the gooey things that you may have encountered elsewhere. Here they are served as a flat flour tortilla on which a variety of toppings are placed, e.g. excellent rare tuna with a little black bean and wasabi sauce and a smear of salsa (15/20). For the main course I tried chicken mole, the Mexican savoury chocolate sauce. Here it was dark and intense, laced with chilli spiciness, served with carefully cooked pieces of chicken, a little rice and some plantains. Service was reasonable. This was as good a Mexican meal as I have eaten anywhere up till now.
