In Jamie Oliver´s foodie forecast for 2017 he listed tacos as number 6 in his list. This has been long time coming but I do believe that this trend has not seen it´s peak yet. As a huge lover of all things Mexican I can’t wait for this to happen. I have tested quite a few Mexican restaurants in London, not yet finding the same satisfaction that I have experienced in Taquerias in Mexico. But no room for sorrow since London, you are getting close. There are three newcomers that I have already tested and they ranked quite high on my list. El Pastor in Borough Market, Temper in Soho and Corazon in Poland Street are all good choices for your Mexican hunger.
I came across Corazon when they started to renovate the space in Poland Street. You could easily guess that it was going to be a Taqueria. I took a picture of the sign and constantly kept googleing the name for something to pop up. Then finally it was open.
This place is near Oxford Circus, but just the right amount away from all the hustle. A red Taqueria light welcomes you outside and the interior inside is fresh and simple. We had chips with three salsas and guacamole. From the tacos the winner was definitely baja fish, so you don’t want to miss that from your order. Also the carne asada was very tasteful. Menu is short and sweet and the food is as fresh as the interior inside. I can already say that we will be returning to this place, but before we do we are heading off to the real thing witch is Tulum Mexico. So the next Mexican food that will be featured on the blog will be from the taquerias and restaurants of Tulum.
P.S If you are looking for a good Mexican places in Finland and thinking if it exists I can tell you it does. There are quite a few places in Helsinki but my favourite one is in Turku. It is located at the end of the old Market Hall and it is called La Victoria. I love that place. You wouldn’t believe to find so authentic Mexican food in Finland.
