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”.
