A stylish cantina using high quality ingredients to make punchy tacos and tostadas.

London’s Mexican restaurants are not renowned for their authenticity but Taqueria is arguably best of the bunch. I love its stylishly unfussy vibe and often pick up a pack of the kitchen’s own corn tortillas to enjoy at home.

Food and drink

Chorizo fans won’t want to miss the home-made chorizo in dishes such as the choriqueso taco, which features the sausage rolled in browned cheese. I love cochinita pibil, where pork is marinated in achiote and orange juice before grilling, and almost always order a tamarind agua fresca to accompany. The dessert list could be more enticing, but do you really need anything more than churros with toffee sauce?

Ambience

Light and breezy, thrumming with locals, American expats and other people au fait with Mexican food.

Service

A little more slickness would be appreciated.

Location

On one of Notting Hill’s smartest shopping streets.

Price advice

Prices start at £2.50 for a tostada and rise to £6.50 for the likes of chargrilled steak taco with mashed avocado and salsa.
