Edson and Natalie Diaz-Fuentes again win mostly good, if slightly up-and-down reports for their ‘real food of Mexico’, mixing tacos and tostadas with a few more substantial dishes. In autumn 2021, the couple return to Shoreditch (site of their first restaurant, which closed in 2016) with a new opening to join their existing Bermondsey venture. It’s on a corner site that was formerly a grab-and-go pitstop, Pod.

This “authentic, up-beat” cantina “lifts the reputation of Mexican cuisine in London” with its “delicious food” and colourful atmosphere. Founders Edson Diaz-Fuentes (ex-Wahaca) and his wife Natalie brought it to Bermondsey via pop-ups, supper clubs and a short-lived Shoreditch venture. A minority of reporters complain of “inconsistency”, with dishes veering between “excellent” and “flavourless”.

“More-ish small Mexican dishes” feature at this hip new Bermondsey street food venture founded by Edson Diaz-Fuentes (ex-Wahaca) and his wife Natalie after a Kickstarter campaign (their shortlived Shoreditch site closed in 2016 after property problems). Early reports are promising: “if you enjoy Mexican food, this is the place to come”. Top Tip: “hot guacamole with crickets was interesting and delicious”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
