kentish town, once the shabbier end of camden town is steadily emerging as a place for creative dining and drinking with the arrival of [ladies and gentlemen], [nowhere special], [chicken shop] and now wahaca. the multi-multi-award winning mexican kitchen dishes up authentic street food and regional specialities from all over the central american culinary capital - straight from the cookbook of founder tommi miers and her cohort of trusted, treasured chefs. right above kentish town station [extra plus points] in the former home of t-shirt makers fifth column's old factory, the restaurant and daytime burrito bar still bears the paint flecks of its storied past on the walls. your food order must cram every inch of the table and be devoured greedily. select from chorizo topped frijoles, plantain tacos, salmon sashimi tostados, chilli quesadillas, empanadas, baja fish tacos, sweet tomatillo jam bunuelos, churros y chocolate washed down with house margs, hortchata rice milk or a multitude of agave elixrs. and breathe. daily specials might see grasshoppers one day, pickled cactus the next. limited edition t-shirt deli to buy no pretense - damn good, damn delicioso.
