Homies On Donkeys

££££
Perfect For:Takeaway

Homies On Donkeys is a tiny counter-only taqueria in Walthamstow’s Wood Street Market. Chef Smokey - the owner and taco king - is a man who claims to never go on holiday because he loves working so much. And once you watch him do his thing and have eaten his food, you won’t doubt it for a second. These are big, messy, and juicy tacos. The camaron enchilado has king prawns so chunky that the corn tortilla can barely take their weight along with the tingly tomato and chilli sauce they’re cooked in. The cochinito (pork butt cooked low and slow) is the star though. It’s smoky in flavour cooked by someone Smokey in name. Make sure you check out the Saturday specials as well.
