Taco Padre is located in Borough Market, London. The team at Padre work hard to bring the very best of what Mexico has to offer to Londoners and now nationwide through our new TACO PACKS and Online shop. We want everyone to experience the incredible flavors of Mexico!
Tacos Padre was founded by Nicholas Fitzgerald in 2017, appearing at Meatopia and various pop ups in London, Mexico City, Portugal, and Berlin before finally opening his first permanent taqueria in Borough Market Kitchen at the end of 2019. Tacos Padre has been inspired by Nick’s extensive travels around the country – the flavours, colours, sights, and sounds of Mexico’s street food, markets, and diverse regional cuisines are all distilled into the vibrant dishes at Tacos Padre. As well as stints heading up many of London’s best Mexican restaurants, Nick worked at the renowned Pujol in Mexico City, currently 12th on the World’s 50 Best list.
By day, the Borough Market taqueria serves tacos and Mexican small plates and on summer weekend evenings, the stage is set for a full dinner service, as outdoor tables are set up outside the stall, with lots of tropical plants to bring a tropical vibe. Tacos Padre also offers DIY taco kits for nationwide delivery, as well as salsas, rubs, and cocktails which all made in-house form scratch.
