Taqueria – Authentic Mexican Gem in Notting Hill

You know that feeling when you get a craving for some good old Mexican food and it just won’t go away… That means it’s time for a proper taco fix, and in London it means, its time to head to Taqueria on Westbourne Grove in Notting Hill.

They did a refurbishment recently and almost doubled in size, but thankfully the food has stayed the same, if not even better.

I’m a sucker for corn on the cob, and this delicious one comes with hot Chipotle mayo, tangy lime and crumbly cheese.

Taqueria has the best fish tacos I’ve ever tried. Hot and flaky cod fried in cider batter, spicy chipotle mayo, avocado cream, lime coated shredded cabbage is a fusion of flavours that you will remember.

And to sweeten things up – fried ripe plantain with crema.

Some enticing steak tacos – charcoal grilled steak, browned cheese, cool avocado cream, pasilla de Oaxaca salsa and tangy pico de gallo salad.

Mexican Horchata… they also have amazing margaritas, and my favourite non-alcoholic drink is the cucumber juice.

Talk about these jalapeño tacos – perfectly grilled jalapeño, creamy goat’s cheese, cream sauce, tamarind salsa, almonds, a hefty pile sweet crispy onions and refried beans, and you’ll be speechless.

Black bean tostada – refried black beans, roasted tomato salsa, lettuce and crumbly cheese – simple and enjoyable!

We finished off the meal with some churros with salted caramel sauce, but I forgot to take a picture… we attacked them too quickly. I was slightly disappointed that the churros weren’t covered in cinnamon-sugar like they use to be. But most importantly we all certainly got our taco fix and were so thrilled that Taqueria’s food has only improved.

    Haha! Salted caramel is trendy, but living in southern California, just above the US/Mexican border, I can assure you it’s not an authentic Mexican food. The cinnamon sugar was. But the restaurant you showcase seems to have put their own spin on ALL the food, so I suppose their new dessert enhancement is an attempt to capitalize on the gringo fascination with salty-sweet. 🙂

      If only us Londoners had as many Mexican restaurants as you do. I agree on the salted caramel, much prefer it with cinnamon sugar 🙂
