London's Latino Spots with Desta French

London is renowned to be a melting pot of cultures and so, there's a good chance you can find a little bit of everything in this city. Singer, Desta French, was born and raised in a London where there is still no box but “other” to check for Latina/Latino/Hispanic members so, the half-Colombian and half-Italian is now on a mission to find a voice for the UK's Latin population. She shared some of her favourite Latino spots across London with us.

Costa Azul

"Whenever I’m in the mood for Ecuadorian food, this is the spot. You have to try the ceviche there."

Find them on Facebook here.

Pueblito Paisa

"Latin village is like stepping into an actual indoor market in Colombia. I love it. It's filled with small local Latin businesses currently In litigations with the council who are trying to close it down so they build flats there. What’s new. Check @savelatinvillage to find out more and on how to support the community."
