Calling all daredevils - guests of El Patron are in for an extra special treat this Halloween as the Mexican bar and kitchen marks the Day of the Dead with a one-off menu, featuring a bespoke selection of insect tacos and cocktails.

A delicacy in Mexico set to challenge even the bravest at heart, diners can sample dishes such as dried worms, marinated cockroaches and glazed scorpions all served on soft corn tortillas with various spices and toppings. Think chilli dried worm tacos with fresh coriander and chunky guacamole, washed down with a cricket luchador, made with mango margarita, a kick of jalapeño infused aretto blanco, mango chillies, lime and garnished with crickets.

As evening falls and the cockroach cocktails kicks in, the vibrant restaurant will turn up the heat with their renowned house band, Truly Meadly Deeply playing a selection of Latino classics and top hits. Guests are encouraged to dress up in their most fearless outfits and there will also be face painters circulating the room on the night. 

Before you turn your nose up I’d seriously think about giving insects a try, I’ve heard really good things from the organisers and have a feeling you may be pleasantly surprised.

Expect a vibrant, tongue-in-cheek celebration of all that is fun in Latin culture.

El Patron, 141 Upper Richmond Road,Putney, SW15 2TX, 31 October, 5pm until late.
