Say "Aloha, honey" to this new Hawaiian tiki basement joint

Covent Garden has received a hit of the tiki treatment, as critically acclaimed Cuban-born chef Luis Pous has launched the first UK outpost of his much-loved tiki-inspired restaurant and bar, El Ta’Koy, at 3 Henrietta Street. Pous is already rocking two successful restaurants under the name, one in Miami and the other at The Dominick Hotel in New York, both bringing the vibes of Hawaii's colourful and energetic tiki bars. Aloha, honey!

With a menu spanning Asia to Latin America, this place is a vivid reflection of the archipelago's hedonistic rep as a melting pot of food and culture. Mexican-inspired tacos, tostadas and empanadas assemble alongside fluffy bao buns stuffed with pork chicharron, while the Filipino answer to a spring roll, the Lumpia, comes stuffed like a stocking on Christmas morning with the juicy likes of lamb barbacoa. 

You'll find this atmospheric 30 seater bar and dining room in the cellar of the impressive five-storey townhouse. If you're looking for a drinking den with a tiki-inspired cocktail list, this is The One.
