Del 74 Tacos in Clapton: London’s Best-kept Secret

It was a Friday, it was a hot evening, SEEN ventured into the wilds of Clapton, there to sample the most amazing Mexican bar/restaurant: Del 74 Tacos, the brainchild of Enrique Vivas of Boho Mexica fame. The atmosphere was lively as the young and gorgeous flirted with each other over the music. The unruffled mixologists shook a variety of margaritas (one in each hand) for the thirsty crowds as the lovely Jorge took orders, chatted and encouraged his staff.

SEEN was very happy to chat and observe the scene, putting her order in Jorge’s capable hands. He ordered a lovely hearty Ceviche with tortilla chips to start. A watermelon margarita was mixed (watch these, they’re so refreshing you feel could drink loads). Three tacos headed my way, borne by friendly chefs. How they made it through the crowds without spilling anything, SEEN doesn’t know. I ate Tilapia topped with home-made coleslaw; Cochinita Tibil – pork with guacamole and red pickled onion; and the most delicious steak sandwich with cheese (mercifully small). It was all fabulous; rich, hearty, fresh and authentic. Del 74 Tacos is unique. Enjoy.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
