Street food brand Tigre Tacos has secured its first permanent restaurant space in the capital, opening above mezcal bar Doña on Stoke Newington High Street next month.

The Tigre Tacos taqueria will take over the ground floor space with Doña housed underneath.

Brightly-coloured neon signage will hang over the door, whilst the interiors - in line with Doña - will be bright and bold, inspired by the spirit of modern Mexico. Pastel brickwork will sit alongside patterned inlaid tiling and banquette seating. 

Founded by chef Ramon Ramos, Tigre Tacos is inspired by southern California's thriving Mexican street food scene. 

It originally started out life as a taco truck, which remains parked up in Nine Lives Alley, London Bridge. The group also operates a residency at The Gunmakers in Clerkenwell.

Signature dishes set to feature on the Stoke Newington menu include the camarones (shrimp) taco with grilled king prawns, habanero and roasted pineapple salsa; calabacitas, courgette, baby corn and hibiscus flowers served with El Tigre’s salsa verde and crème fraiche; pulpo tostada, octopus ceviche on blue tostada with chilli oil.

There will also be an ice cream taco dessert featuring a homemade taco waffle with soft serve.

As well as in the taqueria, guests will also be able to order tacos downstairs at Doña, which is the first permanent venture for long-term friends and mezcal enthusiasts Thea Cumming and Lucia Massey, the latter of whom is also the founder of London Mezcal Week.

The drinks list includes a selection of Mezcal cocktails, as well as straight agave spirits, beer, and wine.
