A weekend of slotting tostadas into your face at an alarming rate is always a good thing. And you have options. Try the tequila flight at Kraft Dalston which will be available from 2nd May. Or head to Walthamstow’s favourite industrial estate brewery for Signature Brew’s The Tacover. There'll be taco stalls with the likes of Homies on Donkeys and Birria Taco serving food. Plus there’ll be late-night DJ sets and a tortilla slap contest that will appeal to your inner 14-year-old. Or you could simply go to one of London’s best Mexican restaurants
