“Mexican dining culture is very much about conviviality,” explains Crispin Somerville, co-founder of El Pastor, “the food is put in the middle of the table, and people pile in.” In this spirit, El Pastor’s menu features a centrepiece of either braised short rib or marinated, grilled sea bream, accompanied by authentic, house-made corn tortillas, salsas and sides, designed for everyone to gather round and build their own tacos.

For the short rib, grass-fed Angus beef is braised for twelve hours in a spice rub made with muscovado sugar until it’s not only rich in flavour but so tender that it falls off the bone. This is paired with sharp, pickled red onions and ‘La Maya’ salsa, made with roasted pineapple and habanero chillies for a sweet, warming kick.

“The recipe for our sea bream is taken from chef Gabriela Cámara of legendary Mexico City restaurant, Contramar” explains Crispin. For this signature dish, butterflied fish is marinated with two different salsas – a mild, green, ‘mojo verde’, and a hotter, red ‘salsa roja’. The fish is grilled until slightly charred, then served with tortillas, chipotle mayo, lime-dressed cabbage and coriander.

For a real feast, a few El Pastor favourites surround the tacos. Start with house-made totopos (corn tortillas chips) with guacamole, followed by the restaurant’s signature tuna tostadas, made with raw, sashimi-grade yellowfin tuna, marinated in a sesame, soy, and arbol chilli dressing, piled onto crisp, blue corn tostadas.
