A modern Mexican diner in East London, inspired by Mexico City.
One can never have too many Tacos, in our humble opinion. The same goes for for Burritos and our newest love, NYC Tortas (more on that later). You can find all these delicious items on the menu of DF Mexico, a very permanent-looking pop-up restaurant in East London.
The DF in the name stands for Distrito Federal, which is how the cool kids call Mexico City. That’s also the place where the people behind the venture (who also run Wahaca) took their inspiration when coming up with the dishes served here. There are some obvious influences from the US to find as well, such as with the glorious NYC Tortas we mentioned earlier. Think toasted brioche bun filled with slow-roasted pork and smashed avocado and slaw, burger style.
DF Mexico is a self-service restaurant with computer screens to place your order, and it’s situated in the Old Truman Brewery building. Click through the slide show above to see some more pictures of the cool space.
