The boys behind Breddos are absolutely SMASHING IT at the moment so it will come as no surprise to hear that they are opening a second restaurant, this time on Kingly Street, Carnaby!
Opening in September, expect an exciting menu featuring old favourites as well as a brand new breakfast menu. Tacos for breakie, we’re in! The new place is more than double the size of the original with a basement Mezcal & Margarita bar for late night drinks.
The new taqueria will house a specially designed pizza oven that will be used to make Breddos’ interpretations of tlayudas (Mexican pizzas) — the pea and broad bean tlayuda with chicken skin, black garlic, pecorino and preserved lemon sounds like an absolute winner.
Alongside this, the kitchen will feature a custom-made wood grill and charcoal spit which will give way to a host of brand new, regionally inspired dishes.
Menu highlights include chestnut smoked tamworth pork al pastor with roasted pineapple, sour chile and tamarind salsa; hot pepper crab tostada with cucumber escabeche; acalpulco shrimp and corn esquites queso fundido. There will also be a family-style menu which includes smoked, braised and grilled corn fed chicken served with Mexican rice and seven salsas, and smoked suckling pig with salsa negra. All are served with Breddos’ in-house corn tortillas, using dried heirloom corn from Mexico.
Fear not, the much-loved classics that have filled Instagram feeds, such as baja fish tacos, masa fried chicken tacos, tuna tostadas, and kung pao pork belly tacos will remain on the menu. Hurrah!
Whilst the Clerkenwell site took inspiration from a trip Los Angeles, the new taqueria’s food takes its inspiration from a recent adventure to Mexico, where Nud and Chris travelled through Oaxaca, Yucatan and Mexico City. Tough life aye.
Breddos Taqueria Kingly Street will have plenty of seats too, including a large sharing table, counter and bar seating as well as a small outdoor dining space. Margarita’s in the sun – now we’re talking!
Just like the original taqueria there will be a record player for diners to use, selecting tunes from a sizeable vintage vinyl collection with a focus on ‘50s Mexican music.
Speaking about the new restaurant Co-Founder, Nud Dudhia said ‘It’s always been an ambition of ours to return to central London after our stint at The Player many years ago. We’re super excited to introduce customers new and old to some of the new dishes and drinks we have created for Carnaby.’
