Tequila and Tacos what more could a boy want?!
It was the Mr’s birthday the other day so to celebrate I took him up to town for a day of culture and good food, plus a few cheeky beverages.
First stop The British Museum for some birthday culture.The British Museum is currently hosting an exhibition displaying the beautiful work of Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai, most famously known for his piece ‘The Great Wave’ he just so happens to be the Mr’s favourite artist so it was the perfect way to start his birthday.
Hokusai created art up till his 90’s however the exhibition focuses on the last 30 years of Hokusai’s life – a time when he produced some of his most memorable masterpieces. It’s on until the 13th of August so there’s plenty of time to plan a visit.
10 minutes away in Soho is a gem of a taco place. Corazon.
Make sure you order a hibiscus ice tea they are the perfect cool down in this hot weather, plus the margaritas are pretty damn good too!
Everything is good but I would highly recommend…
Contramar Tostadas; marinated yellowfin tuna, chipotle mayo, crispy leeks, avocado. Super fresh and a great mix of textures.
Beautiful juicy Carnitas Taco’s; slow cooked pork belly & collar, in a marinade of o.j., Mexican oregano, cinnamon & garlic,served with crispy pork skin, pickled jalapeno & salsa verde.
We had had Baja Fish Tacos in San Francisco but they were nowhere near as good as Corazons version.
We had a bowl of Esquites on the side; grilled sweetcorn, stripped from the cob & served with guajillo chile powder, epazote mayo, lime, cows milk cheese. Not my favourite dish of the meal but still tasty.
Every review I had read raved about the coconut flan so I couldn’t not try it. It’s a twist on the classic creme caramel but made with coconut milk and topped with toasted coconut.Literally the best dessert i’ve ever had and trust me i’ve had my fair few desserts in my life.
After a few more tequilas and a few pints next door at Brewdog we made our way home, falling asleep full but content.
