There are only a handful of London restaurants that serve birria tacos, and even less than that we’d recommend crossing London to eat. But Birria Taco in Kensal Rise is worth making the effort for. Birria tacos, birria-loaded fries, and birria ramen—everything at this bright, laid-back Mexican-inspired spot revolves around the adobo-marinated meat stew. There’s the option of lamb or beef, both of which are excellent, so the only thing to figure out is how much you’re going to order. The answer should be: a lot. It’s a walk-in only spot, but you’ll usually be seated pretty quickly. And when the weather’s nice, the tables outside are perfect for getting messy.
