Breddos to open second taqueria

Breddos is to open a second taqueria on Kingly Street in Carnaby this September, following the launch of its first permanent site in Clerkenwell last year.

The 84-cover site is more than double the size of the original, and will include a basement mezcal and margarita bar, exclusive dishes and the first breakfast menu for Breddos.

Brand new breakfast dishes include tacos such as smoked brisket, fried potatoes, egg and hot sauce; confit pork memelas with black beans and scrambled eggs; and cinnamon churro French toast.

The classic baja fish tacos and kung pao pork belly tacos will be available on the main menu, alongside new additions such as chestnut smoked tamworth pork al pastor and hot pepper crab tostada.

The kitchen will feature a specially designed pizza oven and custom-made wood grill and charcoal spit to cook up the creations.

In addition to 30 different mezcals and a selection of cocktails, Breddos will be stocking its own beer, which is brewed with Mexican yeast, made in collaboration with Magic Rock.

As far as the interior design goes, while the Clerkenwell site took inspiration from a trip to Los Angeles, the new taqueria is inspired by a trip to Mexico. There will be a large sharing table, banquets and bar seating, as well as a small outdoor space. A record player with a vinyl collection focusing on ‘50s Mexican music will also be available for guests to use.

“It’s always been an ambition of ours to return to central London after our stint at The Player many years ago,” says Breddos co-founder Nud Dudhia. “We’re super excited to introduce customers new and old to some of the new dishes and drinks we have created for Carnaby.”

To open the second site, Breddos is continuing its partnership with Ennismore.

“It’s been a very rewarding experience to watch our design and operations teams work alongside Chris and Nud to scale Breddos from successful street food traders to their first restaurant in Clerkenwell, which has been a runaway success,” says Ennismore founder Sharan Pasricha. “It was only natural to now find a second home to cement their place on the London food scene with the opening of Kingly Street.”
