Breddos is a Mexican restaurant serving Tacos, Tostadas and other Mexican food & drinks. We first tried Breddos at Street Feast Dalston Yard and we absolutely loved it. It was the one thing we knew we’d have every time we went to Dalston yard. Naturally, we were super excited to find out they had opened a restaurant on Carnaby Street in Soho and booked in for dinner.
The restaurant is about five minutes walk from Oxford Circus station on Kingly Street, which has quite a few other cool restaurants. Breddos Soho is quite snug, but it has two floors. Our table was in the below ground floor.
We were eager to see what else they had to offer apart from the tacos they served at Street Feast. I didn’t look at the menu beforehand as I was sure there would be something for me. The menu is short but has a little of everything for everyone – as well as offering to make some dishes vegetarian.
What we ordered
For starters we ordered the corn chips with salsa, guacamole and cheese, The ‘nduja esquites with pan-fried corn and the BBQ tamwork pork skewer. From the tacos, we had the Baja fish, masa fried chicken and crispy pork belly chicharron. For mains, we had the wood grilled chicken with spiced potatoes as a side.
Review of the food
The problem we had with the corn chips was that we did not know that each option came as an individual dish instead of add ons. So, in effect each topping (salsa, guac or cheese) came as an individual dish with their own set of corn chips. We had an overload of corn chips on our table, to the point we couldn’t fit any more of our dishes and they had to hit pause on our orders in the kitchen. We were fairly upset that our waiter did not explain this to us and just allowed us to order all three, especially since we were only two and continued to order a lot more dishes. But, we ate it and really enjoyed the corn chips. The cheese option was the best one, perfectly cheesie. Next time we would only go for the cheese corn chips.
The ‘nduja esquites with pan fried corn was essentially sweetcorn in a relatively spicy sauce. Amen didn’t like it as he expected there to be sausages. He only had a couple spoonfuls as we had ordered a lot of other stuff he would rather enjoy. He also had the BBQ tamwork pork skewer, which he thought they was “okay”, but he has nothing more to say about it as he can’t exactly remember the dish.
The chicken taco wasn’t how I remembered it. It just wasn’t as nice as it was at Street Feast, and Amen didn’t enjoy his Baja fish taco too. We ate the chicken and fish but left the tortilla, mainly because we had way too many corn chips. Amen also had the crispy pork belly chicharron and he loved it! It was definitely his favorite dish there and would’ve ordered more had he not had so many corn chips.
For mains, we shared the wood grilled chicken and luckily, we did as we were already stuffed, plus it came with more tortilla. We definitely did not eat the tortilla’s but enjoyed the chicken. It was delicious, perfectly spiced and full of flavory.
I try not to drink fizzy drinks especially coca-cola and the only time I do have it is at the cinema. But I wanted to have the the breddos Mexican cola just to see the difference. It tasted really good and was not as carbonated as coco-cola or as sugary which is absolutely amazing. The breddos Mexican cola is their version of traditional Mexican cola but they made it themselves.
We couldn’t have dessert after all that food so we didn’t even bother asking for the menu. But I do remember them having some options.
We would definitely go back, but probably with a bigger group so we can share everything. Everybody loves tacos, right? Also, the corn chips are heavenly but we just had too much. We definitely recommend going down to Breddos because we love a chilled and relaxed restaurant where you can tuck in and enjoy the food. We recommend for casual dates, casual dining with friends, and all lovers of tacos.
