DF MEXICO

Monday nights aren’t always the most exciting of evenings. But thanks to this hip and happening fast-food joint based in the Truman Brewery, the start of the week has just got a darn sight more tasty

Specialising in all things south of the border, with a few from the north thrown in for good measure, DF Mexico (named after Distrito Federal, what locals call Mexico City) has set all of Monday aside for half-priced tacos. Knowing how eye-wateringly wonderful they are already, we decided to bag ourselves a bargain. Opting for the pork pibil and buttermilk chicken, both of which were stuffed to spilling, these tacos managed to elevate the humble tortilla to a lip-smacking new level. With sides of DF slaw and pinto beans we couldn’t have been happier, although a couple of classic frozen Margaritas certainly added to the jollities. If you want to get your week off to a flying start, you now know exactly where to come.
