Let’s be honest, Birmingham has been looking a little drab lately during these cold weather days. It’s in desperate need of some vibrancy. Just in time then, a new restaurant, inspired by the vivacious culture of Latin America, is opening in Solihull next week (March 22). Tio Latino will hopefully bring some much needed sunshine too!
Tio Latino (meaning ‘the Latino Uncle’ in Spanish) aims to be the most “eccentric, energetic, cheerful, and fun” uncle in Birmingham. From the food to the interior, to the staff and hopefully the customers, this new restaurant will bring all the vibrancy you’ve come to associate with Latin America.
With a focus on serving Latin American street food, diners can expect a large selection of mostly Mexican-inspired dishes. Such as tacos al pastor to beef birria burritos, spinach empanadas and chicken fajitas.But you’ll all be able to try the Peruvian classic ceviche and an Argentinian- style steak with chimichurri. Expect everything to be served fresh, flavourful and bright with colour – just like Latin America.
The Latin American restaurant will also double as bar too and will aim to serve mojitos, margaritas, or caipirinhas this side of the Atlantic Ocean. Making Tio Latino a new ideal lively spot for both large family dinners or a night out with friends – where you can grab a quick snack too.
Remember to pack your salsa shoes too, as Tio Latino looks set to become the new home for Latin dance lovers. Though nothing is announced yet, the restaurant also wants to host regular live music events. So you can stamp your feet and clap your hands all night long to the beats of salsa, reggaeton, cumbia and bachata. It will also start hosting boozy bottomless brunches soon too. Did anyone say bottomless mojitos?
