Mexican restaurant chain DF Mexico, created by the team behind Wahaca, is to open a second branch on London's Tottenham Court Road in September.

The opening of the 130-cover restaurant comes a year after the first branch opened at Brick Lane, London’s Old Truman Brewery.

The menu, which is inspired by a trip that Wahaca co-founders Thomasina Miers and Mark Selby took to the Mexican and American border, includes a ‘New York-style’ Mexican sandwich served in a toasted Brioche Bun with smashed Avocado, and Mexican-American Steak Tacos made with grilled Steak, Cheese, Chipotle Salsa and Tomato Guacamole, served in Corn Tortillas.

There will also be new additions to the DF Mexico menu with the inclusion of Carne Con Chile Crinkle Cut Fries and a locally brewed Lupulo Pale Ale.

Miers said of the upcoming opening: “Tottenham Court Road is an exciting area as it’s in the middle of everything; creative businesses, universities, hospitals, theatres, libraries, courts, you name it.

“When we first launched DF Mexico we were nervous about doing something that was a ‘fusion,’ but this food reflects the reality of big cities –  a melting pot of influences that can come together to make something great.”
