Breddos Tacos started as a taco shack in a Hackney car park over 10 years ago – and it’s since become a firm fixture on the London food scene. The menu, conceived by best mates Nud Dudhia and Chris Whitney, is simple, bona-fide Mexican – ceviches, tostadas, quesadillas and, of course, tacos. No knives or forks required.
When he’s not cooking at LA’s Taqueando taco festival or hosting pop-ups at Macau’s Mandarin Oriental, Nud divides his time between Oslo and London, eating virtually every meal out.
“The eagerness of diners to sniff out new places, combined with the risk chefs are taking with niche and regional-focussed concepts makes London such an incredible place to cook and eat,” says Nud. “And it’s rapidly evolving with more and more independents on the rise.”
Here are just a few of his favourites – from his favourite places for classic British fare to must-go spots on a drunken night out. As for his favourite mealtime? “Lunch. Because with the right company, it can turn into dinner.”
