Mexican Restaurants in Shoreditch
1. Wahaca Mexican restaurant in Shoreditch 140 Tabernacle Street - EC2A
“Tasty Mexican street food” at this “buzzing” chain still wins over plenty of supporters, who swear by its “fresh, wholesome, family-friendly” grub (ideal for “when you’re on the hoof”). Others, though, complain that “the menu is getting a bit tired” and the “flavours can be a bit hit and miss outside the standard dishes”. Financial losses during the pandemic forced the chain to close nearly half its branches and sell a majority stake to South African billionaire Dick Enthoven, owner of Nandos. Founded in 2007 by former MasterChef winner Thomasina Miers and Mark Selby, it now has 10 remaining branches in London as well as venues in Brighton, Cardiff and Edinburgh.
2. Maya Mexican restaurant in Shoreditch The Hoxton Shoreditch, 81 Great Eastern Street - EC2A
Breezing in from West Hollywood, Soho House’s latest opening is a groovy-looking 80-seater plus loungey terrace, which sits on the glam rooftop (lots of steel, glass and greenery) of the Hoxton Hotel, with interesting views over The City. Exec chef Giacomo Pettinari has created a menu of Baja-Mexican dishes and a roving guacamole cart is all part of the fun (plus cocktails a-go-go too, of course). It opened too late for any survey feedback, but Fay Maschler, nowadays of Tatler, gave it a thumbs-up: “urbanista East London… meets leafy, bohemian Mexico” with food that’s “wonderfully light”, “delightfully more-ish” and “gone in a mouthful”.
3. Santo Remedio Café Mexican restaurant in Shoreditch 55 Great Eastern Street - EC2A
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.
