A little reminder for the uninitiated: agave is a succulent plant from which syrups and alcohols are extracted, including tequila and mescal. Bobby Heugel and Alba Huerta, the owners of the bar, have travelled around the agave producing areas of Mexico to find small family distilleries and have selected the best of their production.
The Pastry War is named after a five-month conflict in 1838 about unpaid debts involving the French and the Mexicans. At the Pastry War, you will find no pastry, but instead, a multitude of mescal cocktails and tequila, such as the “Lobito” – rum, averna, lemon, blood orange and damiana flowers – or the “Chota” – white tequila, tamarind and grapefruit. In addition to a nice selection of spirits and beers, you can also enjoy Mexican specialties: cheese but also tamales, a small sweet or savoury corn bread that is steamed.
