Taco Fix, London

I don’t know about you, but all those pictures of guacamole had me jonesing for some of the green stuff.

Working my way through all those pictures, writing up our story had me missing the beach, missing the heat and seriously missing the food!

Sadly there’s not much I can do about the first two, but if you’re suffering from Mexican food envy… I have just the place.

You’ll need to wrap up warm, mind. It’s freezing out there!

I marched myself through Notting Hill, sniffing out the only Mexican place in London you need to know about.

Mexican Restaurant London-3

Taqueria.

On Westbourne Grove.

Mexican Restaurant London-4

I’ve told you about them before, but since then they’ve had a bit of a refurb and doubled in size.

Mexican Restaurant London-5

Thankfully the guacamole has stayed just the same.

Mexican Restaurant London-6

They still serve up the absolute best fish tacos in London.

Mexican Restaurant London-7

In fact, they’re better than any we had in Mexico and even better than anything I’ve ever had in California.

I know, wild statement!

Trust me, the hot crisp batter encasing perfectly cooked, delicately flaking fish – on top of cool guacamole, spicy chipotle mayo – sprinkled with lime coated, crunchy cabbage, is a combo you won’t soon forget.

Tuna tostada with crispy onions – also a winner.

Mexican Restaurant London-9

As are the spicy prawn tacos.

You have to try the passionfruit margarita – sadly I had meetings all afternoon so went for a watermelon agua fresca instead.

Having satisfied my cravings, I took my familiar path to Wild at Heart to pick up a bunch for the kitchen.

Something to replace that turquoise view of the ocean every day and lift my heart.

Mexican Restaurant London-13

Poised on the brink of spring, flowers spill from their buckets, filling the pavement and scenting the air for passers by.

All of whom linger a little longer and slow their stride to enjoy the sensation.

Mexican Restaurant London-15

I chose my favourites (all pinks this time) and waited while my creation was brought to life.

Pea coat (similar) // White cashmere jumper (similar)

Dark skinny jeans // Prada tote

Checked shoes

Mexican Restaurant London-17

These actually launch today as part of a collab between LK Bennett and Bionda Castana. The collection is a dream!

Mexican Restaurant London-18

Slowly but surely my bunch came together.

Mexican Restaurant London-19

A true joy to watch a master at work.

Wild at Heart bouquets are always unbeleafable!

(Hint hint chaps – Valentines day this weekend! Last min gift guide here, too.)

Mexican Restaurant London-25

All bundled up, filled with avocado and clutching my prize, I headed home.

Mexican Restaurant London-26

Back to my desk with a dog to keep my feet warm.

Back to adventures from Mexico tomorrow!

But at least now, if the food envy gets too much, you know where to go…

    This is definitely going on my list, especially after slightly disappointing fish tacos at the Breakfast Club the other week. That guac looks perfect! Thanks as always for sharing, Rosie 🙂

  • Yum those fish tacos look amazing! I’ve recently come to the conclusion that I could probably just eat guacamole for the rest of my life and I would be 100% happy with that decision!

  • Ah! I have fond memories of this place where my date at the time (now hubby) took me out. We had yummy food and far too many coronas;) We should definitely head back , the new deco looks good and I have always loved Mexican food. Lovely pics in the sun of the flowers and you. As we say in French ‘Tu es une fleur parmi les fleurs’ (Your are a flower yourself among the flowers):) xx

  • 110% agree that the Taqueria has the BEST fish tacos anywhere. Definitely satisfied my craving while I was living there. And their margs are to die for!

  • mycitymylondon

    That fish taco:) Thanks for sharing, a must try for next week. That bun of yours though, just the way i like it!

  • I would say that I’m going to put Taqueria on my ever-expanding list of places to visit next time I’m passing through London but I think with a review like that, I may just have to take a trip to London just for the occasion! Gorgeous flowers, Spring is almost here (almost!) xxx

  • You look amazing, per usual! What a lovely day. I’m studying in London for the next few months and you’ve got me wanting to go everywhere you mention! Def going to make time for these two though 🙂

  • Erika Haigh

    Rosie, every one of your London posts makes me want to just drop everything in my life and move there STAT. Thankfully, I’ve managed to check off most of your recommendations from your travels to LA, NYC, and Paris. My friends have now put me in charge of picking out a spot to eat wherever we go because they’ve loved my recommendations thus far, but it’s actually you they have to thank 😉
    Something I have you to thank is inspiring me to start my own blog. While my blog may be a little less glamorous than yours (understatement of the year), your approachable writing style and quirky humour is what got me into loving blogs, and writing my own blog, to begin with. As a londoner-addict for years now, it would mean so much to me if you can check out my own and gave me some feedback on my progress thus far!!
    Much love xx
