The Mayan spiced chicken soft tacos

McDonald's. M&M's World: Leicester Square is hardly equated with fine cuisine. Leicester Square Kitchen takes on that stereotype, with a menu of marvellously fresh Mexican and Peruvian small plates. A zinging sea bass ceviche tickles the taste buds into action, while shredded crab and ginger tostadas are a creamy, crustacean delight. Even asparagus is made interesting, drizzled in a piquant BBQ sauce (although at £7, not cheap). To counter that, a decent 2011 rioja costs around £30 a bottle — not bad for this part of town. Service is zippy too, making LSK a savvy pre-theatre option. Leicester Square Kitchen, 31-36 Leicester Square, WC2H 7LH.
