Posted on November 19, 2017 by James
The two dudes and their continuing journey to bring awesome Mexican street- food to Londoners.
Opening 24th November 2017
Less than a year after their launch and a series of successful summer pop ups, Enrique Vivas and Jorge Felizardo, co-founders of Del74 – London’s Rockin’est taco bar are very excited to announce they will be launching their second site and bringing their authentic Mexican inspired madness to the people of Dalston.
As Enrique says, “we’re like sharks man, we gotta keep moving”.
The new site at 129 Kingsland High Street, in the heart of Dalston, will be revealing new dishes such as tortas (the Mexican sandwich) and an array of new tacos, tostadas and awesome bar snacks such as the new Kick ass Del 74 tamarind & Chile Morita bad ass chicken wings along with building on Del74’s classic offering of magnificent margaritas, the Acapulco shrimp cocktail and damn good tacos including the fan favourite cochinita pibil, comprising braised leg of pork with guacamole and red pickled onions. True to the outlaw nature of Del74 you can also expect mezcal sharing bottles – pay as you pour pre-marked bottles with shot glasses so friends can sit down, pull up a bottle and sip mezcal (or take a shot) and chat.
Del74 Dalston will be open for, lunch/brunch from Tuesday to Sunday, featuring dishes such as the Tortas, the classic Huevos Rancheros, Enfrijoladas and Del 74 signature home made chipotle Chile gluten free corn-bread with salmon & avocado.
Del74 is all about honest Mexican food made with love and they will continue to bring traditional recipes handed down from Enrique’s Aunt Patty, custodian of the family kitchen secrets, to their new Del74 joint in Dalston.
Over the last 10 months, Enrique Vivas and Jorge Felizardo have amazed fans with their much-loved obsession for authentic street style tacos. They are now taking things one step further to continue their small but brilliant operation.
The aim of the new Del74 pitch up is not to create a contrived branded space but to provide its community with an independent, slightly raw charm alongside the highest quality of taco enjoyment. Focussing on their Rad-tastic trade mark interior and general Killer times! Not to mention a new and improved Disco Toilet!
NOTES TO EDITORS
Del74 is the brainchild of two taco obsessives: Enrique Vivas, creator of Shoreditch’s much-loved Boho Mexica, and his Portuguese buddy Jorge Felizardo who co-launched Taberna Mercado with Nuno Mendes. With traditional recipes handed down from Enrique’s Aunt Patty, custodian of the family kitchen secrets, Del 74 is all about honest Mexican food made with love and know-how.
Enrique’s business partner Jorge toured the world as drummer with Portuguese band Primitive Reason, discovering Mexican food in the Southern states and while living on New York City. He ran into Enrique after moving to London in the early Noughties.
Enrique lived in New York for 12 years, soaking up the international possibilities of Mexican food before moving to London to work in sponsorship for the History Channel. “It was really cool but I always had this thing for food,” he says.
When they threw names around for the new restaurant, Enrique and Jorge realised they were both born in 1974 – so Del 74 it was. “From ’74,” the perfect inspiration for the restaurant’s 70s-led art and graphics.
