El Pastor’s set menu is centred around a main course of spiced duck tacos with orange salsa, along with some of the restaurant’s most popular starters, sides and dessert.

Kick off by snacking on the restaurant’s signature guacamole, made with creamy Mexican avocados and served with crisp, house-made totopos (corn tortillas chips).

Next, El Pastor’s ceviche is made by marinating sustainably-sourced sea bass in lime juice, olive oil and chilli until sharp and succulent. It’s then combined with creamy avocado, fresh coriander, red onion, tomato and cucumber to create a refreshing starter.

“Given our close proximity to China Town at El Pastor’s Soho branch, we wanted to create a Mexican riff on Chinese crispy duck pancakes,” says co-founder Crispin Somerville about the main course. “We use Gressingham duck, which we blanch several times, then rub in a blend of Mexican chillies, oregano and garlic. It’s then slow-braised in duck fat until seriously succulent,” he explains. The duck is then loaded into El Pastor’s authentic corn tortillas, along with a sweet-spicy orange and ancho chilli salsa, a pineapple and habanero ‘La Maya’ salsa and a sprinkle of fresh coriander and spring onion.

Alongside the main, El Pastor’s take on Mexican street food favourite esquites combines cheesy sweetcorn with a tangy lime and jalapeño mayo.

“Our chocolate tart is made with a hint of ancho chilli and cinnamon to reflect some of the myriad of ingredients you find in Mexican mole,” explains Crispin about the dessert. The rich, gently spiced chocolate filling is baked in a crumbly pastry case until set.
