Tacos on the rise

The taco’s rise to prominence in London continues, with Club Mexicana moving permanently into the Haggerston cocktail bar Pamela on January 17.

Club Mexicana founder Meriel Armitage has pioneered a vegan take on taco classics, testing the market as a street-food vendor with Kerb and Street Feast.

Two of the best-reviewed London restaurant openings in recent weeks have been tacquerias of a more meaty inclination — Breddos in Clerkenwell and the Hart Brothers’ El Pastor in Borough Market.

Club Mexicana’s meat-free tacos include the signature BBQ pulled jackfruit, the “Baja T-fish” and the Buffalo cauliflower with blue “cheese”.

Host bar Pamela opened in 2015 as an “ode to the great Pamela’s, from Anderson to Grier”.
