DF/MexicoWhat started out as a residency in 2014 in The Old Truman Brewery, to test out a new concept from the team who brought you Wahaca, has become a permanent restaurant in the landmark Brick Lane building. Since it opened modern Mexican diner DF/Mexico has been so popular not only has it lasted longer than your average pop-up but there's also a second branch in central London, DF/Mexico Tottenham Court Road. The winning mix relies on "bloody good" food (Grace Dent, ES Magazine), frozen margaritas - by human or self-service machine - and speedy counter service. Dishes include the NYC Torta, a Mexican sandwich served New York style in a toasted brioche bun with smashed avocado, and Mexican-American steak tacos made with grilled steak, crispy cheese, chipotle salsa and tomato guacamole, served in soft corn tortillas. Inspired by a road trip the Wahaca founders took to Mexico City and the United States, DF/Mexico brings the cosmopolitan diner scene from both sides of the border to London.
