CLUB MEXICANA AT PAMELA, HAGGERSTON

 

CLUB MEXICANA IS LIFE

In what has been deemed “The Best thing to happen to East London since forever”, Club Mexicana has taken over the kitchen at Pamela in Haggerston. If that wasn’t exciting enough, they’ve done it with an entirely new menu and everything is made from scratch. I repeat, EVERYTHING IS BEING MADE FROM SCRATCH!

That includes the tacos…which includes popping the kernels of the corn in order to make the tacos!!! A whole lot of love has gone into every item on the menu. View Post

VEGAN OPTIONS AT WAHACA

Wahaca is a Mexican style chain restaurant founded by 2005 Masterchef winner Thomasina Miers. The first branch was opened in 2007 and by 2015 they had 19 branches – that is so impressive! This was my first visit to the Southbank branch and my first visit to a Wahaca as a Vegan. It used to be my go to place, so I was really excited (and a little apprehensive) about my visit. View Post

TALKING ABOUT TACOS

I love Mexican food. I love chilli. I love tacos. My Husband (Tom) & I have eaten chilli a few nights a week for the last 4 & a half years and we will never tire of it. Sometimes we throw it in a burrito, sometimes we serve it up enchilada-style, sometimes we have it straight up with a side of tortilla chips n guacamole.

We’ve recently gotten into traditional, soft shell tacos and I don’t want to under-play this but OUR LIVES HAVE CHANGED. We have been having them with every meal, pretty much; you can make any night Taco Night if you just put your dinner in a taco. That’s just science.

So I guess this post is more of a serving suggestion for tacos/what I ate this particular night than a recipe; there are so many different things you can stuff a taco with and we always vary a filling here and there. I know I’ve banged on about chilli for most of this intro but we didn’t have any chilli with our tacos on this night, don’t @ me.  View Post
