After browsing Spitalfields Market, we fancied some tacos so headed to DF Mexico, a mexican restaurant owned by Wahaca founder and Masterchef winner Thomasina Miers. DF Mexico follows a similar style to Nandos, where you are shown to your numbered table but go up to the counter (or machine) to place your order. Ditto drinks etc are self service. We both decided to have the bottomless aqua frescas which came in three flavours: Hibiscus, Lime and chia seed and horchata. For our meals, I had pulled pork tacos whilst my friend had the grilled chicken version. The pulled pork was lovely and moist and the pickled onions...

DF/Mexico is the newest venture from the people behind Wahaca. I’ve long been a fan of the Wahaca chain and Mexican food in general and am thrilled there’s finally decent Mexican food in London after years of nothingness. A close friend, who like me has also travelled around Mexico and is quite discerning when it comes to its cuisine, recommend I try it… before the name completely slipped my mind. Then on a Friday afternoon in Shoreditch, I accidentally stumbled upon DF/Mexico and instantly remembered it as my friend’s recommendation. The DF in the name is what Mexicans refer to Mexico City as, aka Distrito Federal....

Created by those lovely people that brought us Wahaca, DF Mexico is a pop up restaurant in Shoreditch. They don’t take reservations but the place is a decent size, and when we visited around 3pm on Saturday afternoon, we had no problem getting a table.The menu had plenty of choice, from traditional Mexican burritos and tacos to NYC Tortas (Mexican food in a brioche bun) and grill options...

Last weekend I trekked into Central London and met up with Sarah and the other girls to help celebrate her birthday early. You have to book in advance with that girl!When Sarah suggested DF/ Mexico which is owned by the same people behind one my favourite restaurants Wahaca, I was looking forward to the outing for days. It's a fast food Mexican with beauties such as tacos, tortas - which I had in the bun above -, burritos and DIY Mexican boards where you can use your imagination. You go up to the counter to place your order and then it arrives at your table in record time. Seriously it felt like we waited...

I’m eating around the world without leaving London and this week I had Mexican food at DF Mexico. DF Mexico, which refers to the country’s capital area, serves up modern day Mexican fare with a little hint of USA. With the risk of finding more Tex than Mex at this place, I decided to go check it out anyways. A taco is a taco after all.DF Mexico is located in the Brick Lane area in the Old Truman Brewery, the building that hosts the Sunday Up Market.Inside it looks like an American diner with those 1950s style booths and infinite soda fountains. So don’t go if you’re looking for piñatas and table serenades...
