The El Pastor family is a small group of authentic Mexican taquerias in London, with tortillas made in-house using heritage Mexican corn.

Inspired by the decade the founders spent in Mexico City, running cult nightclub, El Colmillo, the restaurants offer tacos, tostadas, quesadillas, mezcal, tequila and lively scenes.

We don’t take bookings at El Pastor, Casa Pastor or Tortilleria EP. These locations are walk-in only. If you arrive and the restaurant is full, you’re very welcome to leave your name and number with us, wander off for a drink and we’ll text you when your table is ready.
