Breddos Tacos, London

You know that feeling when you’re headed out to lunch and you know it’s going to be awesome?

Camel coat // Pink jumper (Half price)

Camel belt // Sloppy jeans

Navy Chanel // Navy scarf

Navy pumps

I think it might be one of the best feelings there is.

Although super soft jumpers feel pretty good too.

Especially when their sleeves are extra long (designed to be folded over like cuffs) so you can wear them over your hands.

And then of course there’s the satisfaction of finding the comfiest ballet flats in existence (I buy them a size up so they feel like slippers)… also a feeling worth savouring!

But I digress.

Let’s get back to the pointe.

Breddos Tacos finally have a proper, permanent home.

I don’t want to get you too overexcited, but oh my god it’s so good!

Start with seasonal margaritas (currently a berry sort of concoction with one helluva punch).

Then eat everything.

Get the tomato queso fundito (it’s better than the chorizo one, which is surprising because I rarely prefer a vegetarian option).

A little black skillet filled to the brim with molten cheese…

…just begging to be scooped and devoured!

Then of course there’s the tacos.

Pig’s head conchinita pibil with pickled onions and zingy salsa verde.

Polpo tostada with black vinegar, sichuan, bone marrow & chervil.

The most incredible combination of perfectly cooked octopus with rich, salty bone marrow and cool fresh guac.

Kung pao pork belly tacos, slow cooked, meaty with molten fat and flavoured with an asian twist.

Sweet potato tacos with queso fresco, almond chile and spring onions.

Comforting, satisfying, well balanced.

Beef Birria – super slow cooked, melt in the mouth beef topped with fresh lemon pickled onions.

Masa fried chicken with pico de gallo & habanero sauce.

Just.So.Good.

Baja fish tacos – I could live on fish tacos and these would do just fine.

Egg with macadamia nut mole, hoja santa & queso fresco.

Beetroot poke with a deep, salty white miso sauce.

Quite the spread!

 

The restaurant is cute, simple, buzzy, has a very fast turnaround and feels just like a hole-in-the-wall taco joint you’d find in the states.

The food is unfalteringly delicious.

You do have to have a head for spice, as you can be happily half way through a taco before hitting the hottest chilli pocket of your entire life.

Power through, have some cheese, you’ll be fine.

The only negative I could possibly moan about is that the guacamole portion was a little mean, but avocados are expensive so it we’ll give it a pass.

In short, 5 stars, a new favourite, well worth a visit.

You can find them in East-ish London-

82 Goswell Rd, EC1V 7DB

Mon – Sat 12pm – 3pm | 6pm – 11pm

No reservations, sadly.

Clerkenwell’s a nice place to go for a walk afterwards, take in some of the street art and pretty shops selling things for achingly hip studio spaces.

Taco’bout a nice way to spend an afternoon!

    Mmmmmm that looks divine. I live in California so lets just say I know a good taco. I was always scared if I moved across the pond (my dream) i would never get my taco fix but I’m so glad there are options popping up!

  • This makes me miss the Mexican back in California so much. Everything on the table looks delicious!!! Such unique flavors too!

  • Your Chanel bag is perfection!

  • I sure do love me some tacos! By the way I adore your coat. I’ve been meaning to find a nice camel colored coat.

  • Well if I ever go to London, which I may squeeze into my Europe trip this July, this restaurant looks like the best choice, even as a pescetarian! Not to mention that super decadent looking hot choc that you blogged a few weeks back & Blutop because I am a sucker for the most insane desserts possible! Anyway, I digress & must get back on pointe, but I got nothing more to taco bout here.

    Rarely do I comment on blog posts but birria and cochinita pibil tacos are my favourite! Being so far away from home, even the picture of it lets me taste them! Hope you enjoyed and I´m so happy to see you like “mexican” food!
    All my best wishes xx

  • Hey! Your last two posts don’t show up on your homepage for some reason, no matter how often I refresh the website. I can find them when I click on the ‘Style’ menu category. I’m using safari as my browser so maybe it’s problems with the browser. If I use my phone all the posts show up just fine.
    I love your blog, it’s so inspiring and makes me want to eat and travel all the time! X

  • Omg this looks so delicious!! Adding it to my list of stuff to do in London definitely <3

    I would eat everything there. It all looks so good! Though I agree with your complaint about the guac size–I hate when you order guac and get about 2 bites.
