Following the opening of its first permanent site in Clerkenwell, former pop up Breddos Tacos now has a sibling in Carnaby. The all-day taqueria is double the size of the original, and features a large sharing table and counter, while the interiors take inspiration from Mexico. Signatures from the Clerkenwell site, such as the baja fish tacos, are still available, but a breakfast menu is a new addition, touting the likes of breakfast quesadillas and cinnamon churro French toast. Later in the day, the restaurant’s pizza oven takes centre stage with Breddos’ take on tlayudas (Mexican pizzas), including the pea and broadbean tlayuda with chicken skin, black garlic, pecorino and preserved lemon. Other menu highlights include chestnut smoked Tamworth pork al pastor with roasted pineapple, sour chilli and tamarind salsa, and hot pepper crab tostada with cucumber escabeche. Desserts see soft-serve ice cream churro sandwiches, while those looking to continue the party can head downstairs to the Mescal and Margarita bar, which stocks over 30 different mescals.

All credit to Breddos. It’s come a long way from its humble roots as a makeshift taco shack in a Hackney carpark to a mini-empire of two restaurants, one in Clerkenwell and the other in Soho. We visited the latter on a recent weekday lunchtime and loved the vibe and the food. However, no review is (really) complete without a gripe, and my problem with Breddos relates to its menu. While a fan of the sharing concept – everyone gets to try more dishes – what I dislike is incomprehensible menus. Yes, I know what a taco is, but how many is an appropriate number to eat and how should these be combined with ‘botanas’ (a word hitherto unknown to me, but best considered as a starter) and the possibility of ‘la familia’ offerings too (the latter is, apparently, a larger dish)? What is the point in bringing a menu to a table for diners to deliberate over, if it is not clear how much they ought to be ordering and in what combination? Furthermore, the note appended to the menu that “we politely decline to mix and match” tacos hardly constitutes a welcoming invite. Anyway, at least Breddos redeemed itself when it came to the food. We enjoyed a tuna tartare botana, two pairs of tacos (pork belly and lamb shoulder) before finishing with a wood-grilled chicken and spring onion main. All the dishes were light and flavoursome, showing intelligent combinations of ingredients, especially the addition of red cabbage to the pork belly taco. Pricing is very favourable: we spent not much more than £20/head, albeit drinking only water. If shabby chic/ communal eating (there are banquettes for greater intimacy too) is your thing, then Breddos represents a great addition to the Kingly Court dining complex – once you’ve deciphered the menu.
Pretty good. Aubergine was too burnt and I would not order again. Lamb and sweet corn dishes were good
