Santiago Lastra on his latest restaurant Fonda, and how London learned to love Mexican food

Other Mexican spots making their mark this year include Camden’s casual The Cenote (2 Inverness Street, NW1 7HJ, elcenotecamden.com) which, with its happy hour, £6 margs and messy tacos, seems custom-built for gig-goers at the Electric Ballroom, all of 30 seconds’ walk away. Notting Hill, meanwhile, since March has had Trejo’s Tacos (299-301 Portobello Road, W10 5TD, trejostacos.co.uk), from Hollywood tough nut Danny Trejo; his thing is healthy, with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options (and, too, zero-proof tequila, a nod to Trejo’s 55 years sober). Both follow last year’s Sonora Taco Shop (208 Stoke Newington High Street, N16 7HU, @sonora.ldn) and the ahead-of-the-curve La Chingada (12 Rotherhithe New Road, SE16 2AA, lachingada.co.uk), both generally taken as the benchmark for tacos in London.
