Sporting neon signs, colourful mosaic flooring and piñatas suspended from the ceiling, it's fair to say that Diablo Loco is determined to make its mark on Edinburgh's bar scene. This Mexican bar/diner opened on South Clerk Street in 2017 and since then has been determined to prove itself as one of the capital's hottest joints – both fiery in food and in temperament.
A steady mix of DJ nights and banging beats combine forces with a "sinfully tasty" menu, which darts between tempting tacos and burstin' burritos to the downright daunting swordfish steak and bacon and jalapeño patatas. This is not food for the faint hearted, but thankfully there's a tempting drinks menu on hand to tone down those chilli flushes. Treat yourself to a finely crafted cocktail. Wash it all down with a crisp, imported beer. Heck, let the tequila gods rain down on you! If you're going to dine with the devil, you might as well.
Reviews are pouring in thick and fast for Diablo Loco; go bag yourself an invite to the spiciest party this side of Tijuana.
