Review: DF/ Mexico

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 seconds for our grub!

Like I said, I opted for a four hour slow cooked chilli beef torta with pickles, chipotle mayo and slaw packed in a brioche bun with a side of red rice. I arrived late thanks to the wonders of TFL so panic ordered in a rush. Overall it wasn't a bad choice. The rice was quite bland and had none of the kick I was expected - Hannah opted for a cup of corn which tasted absolutely amazing. To be honest the rice just reminded me of Nandos. So wonderfully creamy and cheesy. The tender chili beef made up for it in such a moreish sauce. It was wonderfully juicy and the slaw gave it that all important crunch. The popping candy ice cream was a bit of a disappointment as it had none of the 'popping' but the sauce was very tasty!

Next time I'm going to plug for one of the DIY Mexican boards so I can make my own tacos. It looked like such good value for money and it's always more fun to create your own food right? I'm already looking forward to going back! It's a great place to visit if you're around Brick Lane and fancy a quick lunch.

Have you visited DF/ Mexico?

  1. Hannah definitely won in the food envy stakes! x

  2. I definitely want to try this soon. It's not too far from my flat and I'm verging on obsessed with Wahaca too!
