One thing we love about the London food scene is that no matter how quickly new places are opening, you can always find that one place you will want to visit over and over again. We have found such a place: El Camion. In the heart of Soho, it serves up excellent Tex-Mex food which never disappoints.
The menu is authentic and resembles a street food style that you can expect find on the streets of Mexico.
Staples such as Quesidillas, Enchiladas and Burritos can be found on the menu as as well as your traditional tostadas and tacos. All are delicious but the stand out has to be the enchiladas. One great thing about this place is how fresh and flavoursome the guacamole is. We have tried our fair share and so far we haven’t found one to rivals this.
Churros are a must here. Fresh and hot and the chocolate sauce isn’t just nutella from a jar. It’s rich in flavour and sticks to the hot doughnut flavoured goodness wonderfully.
The last time we visited we got there for 7 and were in there way past 9.30 but not once were we rushed to leave, even though the tables either side of us had been turned around twice in that time!
For drinks – it has to be margaritas every time! They’re made fresh and they’re fantastic.
For a place to relax and catch up with friends over good wholesome food, this is your place. They’re even open until 2am so put away your kebab craving and get some real food in you! It may not be gourmet or Michelin starred, but it isn’t pretentious and you feel like you are at home there. Sometimes that’s all you want in a restaurant.
