22.11.2017- On the Menu: El Pastor, Borough Market

As far as Saturday pursuits go, there are few things which I tend to enjoy more than enjoying a spot of lunch before heading to the theatre for a matinee- the stuff of dreams! Last weekend, Hannah and I headed to the Young Vic to see The Suppliant Women (via the Tate Modern and their swings!), and although we'd originally planned to head to Flatiron Square for some food, a sudden deluge meant we had to find some lunch a little bit closer to London Bridge. Luckily, El Pastor in Borough Market had a table for us, and was a dining destination which definitely didn't disappoint:

Nestled under a railway arch in the heart of the bustling market, El Pastor offers a menu bursting at the seams with flavoursome Mexican dishes, from signature guacamole and corn chips to freshly made tacos and expertly seasoned sides. We ordered a selection of small plates, including chicken and prawn tacos, the house special El Pastor taco (the best of the bunch) and grilled corn. Suffice it to say that we finished everything in what felt like record time, ordering a second bowl of corn chips to make the most of our leftover guacamole! All in all, El Pastor is perfect if you're looking for a really tasty bite to eat and speedy service- the turnaround of tables is pretty quick too, so even if you turn up when the restaurant is full, chances are that you won't be kept waiting for too long.
