More of a bar than a place to eat, Del 74 Tacos opened quietly on Lower Clapton Road last year as a Sunday pop-up and has now gone permanent – when we say quietly we mean in terms of awareness, there’s defo nothing quiet about the place. In fact it’s quite the opposite with banging tunes, margaritas, Mexican beers, shots and a small Mexican menu.

We’ve heard on the grapevine that Nuno Mendes had a hand in creating the menu which features just 6 tacos, 3 quesadillas and fresh guacamole. We sampled a lamb barbacoa taco, heavy on the slowed cooked lamb and topped with a scattering of onions and the fish taco which was filled with crunchy homemade slaw washed down with a couple of watermelon margaritas. Services is a bit haphazard but it’s brand new and we digged the playlist so we’ll let them off.

If you’re out in Clapton it’s a great little spot for booze, vibes and bar food.
