Lunch At Chayote St Katharine Docks London E1

Our dining experience at Chayote, St Katharine’s Way, London E1, was memorable. Chayote, the restaurant’s name and a pear-shaped tropical fruit with a cucumber-like taste, offers a fusion of Mexican, Peruvian and Spanish dishes thoughtfully prepared with sustainable practices. Chayote stands out as a top choice for authentic flavours from these vibrant culinary regions for those wanting the best Mexican restaurants in London or places to eat near the Tower of London or St Katherine Docks.
