Breddos started out as a makeshift taco shack in a car park in Hackney back in 2011. Since then, we’ve gone on to do residencies and pop-ups, Street Feast, a cook book, as well as a cook-off at LA’s Tacolandia festival in 2016, before finding a permanent home for ourselves in Clerkenwell. Our food is influenced by the hundreds of roadside taquerias and restaurants we have encountered on our travels throughout America and Mexico, whilst utilising the best of British produce from passionate producers such as Phillp Warren and Son and Wild Harbour in Cornwall.

Nice food, nice atmosphere and good service. Portions are small which enables you to sample lots of different tacos but means the wallet takes a bit of a hit if you've got a healthy appetite.

Fantastic authentic Mexican inspired food with a twist as only Breddos knows how. Great prices for the quality of the food, with the exception of the cocktails which are slightly overpriced for what you get. Overall a great place to go and have a fun evening!!

Breddos is a great place for a quick bite as well as a more extensive meal. The food is really delicious and different from a lot of Mexican places around London. Some dishes are more traditionally Mexican, other more adventurous.

Chilled and fun place perfect for a casual dinner and catch up with friends. Food was great and reasonably priced. I will recommend you must order the tuna tostada, sweet potato tacos and fish tacos!

Being from the Southwest US, We were in the mood for some tasty tacos and we found them at Beddo’s. We ordered chips and salsa and were concerned at the small size of fried corn tortillas and tiny bowls of house made salsa, but both the salsa and the tacos, though they small, were loaded with tasty ingredients and proved to be filling. I recommend the fish tacos. carne Assad’s tacos, and meat quesadilla. (Vegetarian version available) I found a beer on tap that tasted Corona-like as soon as I squeezed and dropped a lime wedge into the glass.

The best tacos in London! My only criticism was that the tie between tacos (the dishes come out when they're ready) was a bit long, so one of us was eating while the other one watched... but it's delicious so we let you off!!

We walked to Breddos having been to the Barbican cinema. On a Saturday night the area was quiet and the restaurant is a good find if you don't want to face the madness of Old Street. The staff were super-charming and helpful and the space is relaxed and attractively done out with a big communal table and bar-style seating. The tacos are a riot of flavours with plenty of interesting seasonings, like the peanut mole, which take them beyond the ordinary. The baja fish tacos were our favourite and melt-in-the-mouth lovely. It's not cheap – £6 for 5 admittedly nice homemade tortilla chips and guac is a bit steep – so it's food for savouring rather than for wolfing down.

After several lunch visits, decided to introduce my better half to BT and for us both to try out the Dinner Menu... we were certainly not disappointed , amongst many of the dishes that we tried, would probably have to place the sashimi Tuna Tostada at the very top of the pile... Esquites Con Mesa Y Nduja continue to be a firm favourite 🎶 I was pleasantly surprised by the Coctel De Cafe - Didn’t imagine that I would enjoy an Agave Inspired ‘Espresso Martinez’ As much as I did, handcrafted in front of you and as pokey as you would like... 🙃 Muy Bien y hasta prossima ☝️

Overall a nice experience. Food was tasty. Found it difficult at times to attract the attention of staff as the restaurant was busy and there appeared to be a lot of take away’s going out the door too. The staff were pleasant on my dealings with them. A nice quick meal but wouldn’t rush to go back. Prefer DF Mexico for tacos.

The quality of their tortillas was terrible - soggy, tasteless, stale - just like old cardboard. Some of the food was so salty it was completely inedible, but when we raised this with waitstaff, they shrugged and said that the chef just maybe sprinkled a bit too much on. I had to spit it out because it was THAT salty. Toppings were low quality, apart from the fried chicken. Extremely disappointed, overall.

My first experience here an loved it! Great menu as you can try a few things. I ordered the Tuna tostada which was my favourite, then the lamb shoulder taco which was so tasty, then the fish taco which was really fresh, and finished my the pork taco which was a real disappointment, very bland and dry.... should’ve gone for the steak taco instead. We also ordered some tortillas with guacamole, which were really tasty, but you only get about 5/6 tortilla chips and for £6 I would like a few more. Overall a really great experience and would definitely return.

Last year I went to Mexico so I was really looking forward to eating at Breddos. Compared to Mexican tacos Breddos ones were a lot more expensive and "gourmet", but really good. My favorites were the one with the egg and the one with the pork. I wouldn't recommend the one with al pastor beef because the tortilla was really soggy and broke in the middle, and the taste was not that special. Best 2 things: the tostada with avocado and raw tuna and the guacamole, that was probably the best of my life.

Staff were extremely friendly and attentive, in a very busy environment. I requested they play the a-side of 'off the wall' and they obliged. Allowed us to order, eat and drink a our own pace, we never felt rushed. The food was great, the mix of salsas were outstanding and the fish tacos were incredible. Will be returning!
