I went to the much anticipated Lucha Libre for lunch yesterday. I'm not going to pass any major judgements on the place as they've only just opened, so teething problems are to be expected. This doesn't apply if somewhere is charging a fortune for food but Lucha Libre is relatively inexpensive and they seemed to be doing a roaring trade already from nearby offices.You can order online to take away too.
I had home made Guacamole and Chilli jam with tortilla chips. I really liked the chilli jam especially.
A variation of The Street Food Tray: Pil Bil (Pulled Pork) Tacos, Al Pastor Tacos (Pork Belly), Chicken and Chorizo tacos, Prawn and Mango tacos. (These were my favourite ones). You get three of the same in each portion. I ordered the fish one but that didn't arrive. Neither did my quesadillas, there was a mix up with the order, so I quickly ordered a simple plain quesadilla to finish. I wish I'd chosen another, as I wasn't keen on this, it was a bit bland. For me, all the food needed to be hotter and spicier, but as I said, it's early days for Lucha Libre. I guess they'll tweak it according to customer tastes. But already it seems to be another potential success story and an interesting new addition to Manchester.
