I don't know about you but I enjoy expanding my palate and testing new eateries around this big old city called London. Luckily though, I recently didn't have to venture to far having hit the jackpot with this odd named restaurant called Guanabana.

Now, I love a bit of a twang in a name and was very eager to find out by one of the owners 'where does the name Guanabana come from?'. Apparently it is fruit, similar to a custard apple, that was used as the name for the restaurant because of its unique look and interesting flavour. The same can be said about the menu at Guanabana.

Situated on Kentish Town Road, Guanabana is hard to miss. The rustic wooden exterior and inviting purple door lure you into a gastronomical dream.

With both an inside and outside area to enjoy your meal, you can play to the London weather and head out for the sunshine in cute booths decked with an eclectic mix of cushions, or sit inside in a more conservative manner.

The staff are attentive to your needs and the music creates just the right amount of South American pizzaz.

A group of us headed to this venue and were really happy with the quality of food. Fresh and uber tasty. The gourmet fajitas are a must. Share between a loved one, or four models, and you will not be disappointed. You can hear the sizzle from this dish a mile away and smell the aromas instantly. The aromas are just a gateway into the pack-a-punch bite these cute beauties have on your palate.

If you have a sweet tooth (like me) you will enjoy one of the chocolate favourites. Not a fan of chocolate? Then there is the Banoffee Pie or Homemade Cheesecake.
