El Pastor

El Pastor

This is from the same people behind Barrafina and they are on a mission to do the same for Mexican food as they did for Spanish. Expect a big focus around tacos, particularly on the signature Al Pastor.

"There is pork shoulder, marinated and roasted for 24 hours until it’s so much tangle and thread, with the sweet hit of caramelised pineapple, more guacamole and white onion. Tacos of fried chorizo with soft potato and salsa verde have a little more heft." READ REVIEW

"Service throughout lunch was loveably, laughably chaotic. Missing margaritas, tortilla boxes delivered empty, multiple orders taken. Yet the sesame tuna tartare with avocado on a crisp blue corn tortilla was wonderful. Possibly the best thing on the menu." READ REVIEW

"It was also one of those rare meals which actually got better as it went along. To kick off, a tuna tostada, a bowl of fresh guac and a prawn taco all had the same issue: too much salt. But other tacos – all on the same nicely firm corn tortillas – made me smile, starting with the strip of stonebass (good), the juicy chunks of chargrilled chicken (better) and the signature 24-hour marinated ‘al pastor’ pork (best of the lot)."

"Up there with El Huequito, my favourite, a hole in the wall that’s been there for 50 years. I close my eyes, lips aflame with chilli, head abuzz with mescal, belly filled with tacos. Real tacos. For a minute, I could be back in Mexico. My greedy dreams have, at long last, come true." READ REVIEW
