DF Tacos Shoreditch


The wonderful people behind Wahaca do what they do best and bring Mexican food to the masses. Imagine a Mexicana mama and papa moved to New York and thought, hey modernity ain’t half bad, I think I’ll incorporate that into my delish traditional Mexican comfort food. That's DF Tacos. 

The interior is trendy, stark warehouse with touches of vibrant Mexico City (known to insiders as DF, short for District Federal...hence the name). Seating is either one long communal table to encourage feasting or intimately spaced little ones. Buttercup yellow lampshades hang from loop-de-looping wires and silver industrial piping caterpillars around. Stylish, slick but oh-so-cheerful. Potter over to the self-service screens and get click happy with the burritos. Or order with a human. Yes, humans still do exist.

Choose from a variety of those wondrous Mexican institutions, the taco or burrito, or go for something a little different. Make your own taco with a DIY Mexican board: Four hour slow cooked beef, cheese, sour cream and cowgirl beans for £11.45. Giddy Up. Sample the marvellous thing that is the NYC Torta either on its own or with one of the mouthwatering sides; a Mexican toasted sandwich served in a brioche bun with smashed avocado, slaw, house pickle and your choice of filling.

DF/Mexico - Restaurant Bar Review

You've tripped and rollicked your way through the Rough Trade photobooth, you've considered a tour of the Old Truman Brewery, thought about it some more and spent that hard earned wonga in a Wetherspoons instead, and you've been naive enough to saunter down Brick Lane on a Saturday come 1pm; so whatelse…
