Famed for his long association with El Popo, chef Angel Aceves Vivanco has teamed up with Lourdes Estrada to create this cheerful-looking spot on the edge of New Town. Ringing with colorful patterns and mosaics, the effect is simple but reassuringly lively – the same can be said of the food, which includes hefty burritos served with memorable salsas: the mango habanero has a viper’s bite. Despite some early inconsistencies, the future looks rather promising. In fact, there’s a good chance that El Barrio could well yet challenge La Sirena for the title of Warsaw’s top Mex.
