SquareMeal Review of Taqueria

"GOOD"

Best Restaurants - Mexican - WinnerWith its lively Latin beats, bare floors and portraits of revolutionary hero Zapata on the walls, this cheerful, scruffy and cheap little dive captures the old boho buzz of Notting Hill. Messy but delicious Mexican food is the order of the day, so get your fingers around succulent palm-sized tacos – perhaps stuffed with shredded slow-cooked pork, pickled jalapeño, green pepper and citrus. There are also crispy tostadas topped with ceviche, as well as home-cured chorizo, chicken marinated in beer, and even smoked cod with guacamole, roast corn and chipotle – all backed by essential sides such as refried black beans. Be sure to save room for some deep-fried churros or a rich pudding with cajeta (the Mexican version of dulce de leche). Drink beer and Tequila if you’re brave, ‘aquas frescas’ (flavoured water) if you’re not.

At Taqueria, the service is very good. With that out of the way, the dining room is cramped, the menu is not confusing in a classical, London “small-dish-you-need-at-least-25-per-person” way, but seems to be specifically design to confuse and mislead. Some “starters” are (far too) large, some “mains” are tiny even by nouvelle cuisine standards. The good point is, that this is good Mexian food made out of good ingredients, so whatever the randomly assigned portion size, you will not be left felling terrible. A very 21st Century Notting Hill Mexican experience then (Mexico City on Regent's Canal anyone?) , but one where as so often the “concept” has spoiled an otherwise good kitchen. One leaves feeling sorry for the staff who do their best to explain the maze of a menu and are exhausted from constantly answering questions about what is what and how its made.

for 6 quid at lunchtime (12-4pm weekdays) you can have a bowl of warming broth (caldo tlapeno) with chicken, rice, avocado and chickpeas. Its filling and delicious and comes with two quesadillas on the side – perfect for re-fuelling I agree with the other reviewers – this is not greasy tex mex – this place serves authentic tasting mexican tacos

Tapas-style dishes are perfect as there are so many options on the menu that it's difficult to pick just one dish! Taqueria is a cute neighbourhood restaurant that's casual and fun.
