EATS: DF Mexico & The Diner

14 September 2014

So thanks to Lily I had to go and try out DF Mexico. I'm not really a fan of Mexican food (something that seems to shock everyone), my past experiences have just left me feeling very full and bleh (I'm looking at you Chiquitos)  and honestly, I just feel it's the same food packaged differently. I don't like churros either. Just no. That said I frikkin love nachos. Seriously I will eat them all day, every day.

Anyway fear not I don't hate all Mexican food. I'm actually a huge fan of Wahaca, granted I've only been there twice but I really really like it. If you haven't been it's basically marketed as Mexican street food, I wouldn't know if that's true as I've never been to Mexico, but it's good. Some of the dishes are a bit like tapas, so you end up with a variety of light flavourful dishes.

So after Lily's vlog I looked at the menu for DF Mexico I was excited. Everything looked so bloody good! I did a little further research and saw that DF Mexico (DF stand for Distrito Federal because I know how much it bugged me that I didn't know what the stood for) and Wahaca were owned by the same group and I was like yup I AM GOING THERE and so I did on Friday. I'm not a food reviewer and I'm not even going to try and act like one. But here are pictures of how frikkin glorious the food was, I actually didn't manage to take a lot because I was hungrrrrrrrrry. I had soup that day at like 1pm and we didn't eat until 8pm!

I had the Chilli Beef Torta, which was nice but didn't blow me away! We also had the beef nachos to share and oh man, they were absolutely amazing. I want to have them again and again.

Not the best pictures, but I tried. I'm looking forward to going back and having the nachos again, but I also really want to try the DIY Mexican Boards.

I did more research after (I like to know my stuff okay) and it really hasn't been open for long, my guess is like 3 months? It's also meant to be cheaper than Wahaca, so wahey! Not that I found Wahaca to be incredibly expensive but who doesn't like cheaper? Our meal came to like £35 something with drinks. Absolute bargain! The staff were lovely, the atmosphere was lovely AND whoever runs their twitter account is an absolute champ - so hilarious.

Bonus photos include lunch at the Diner on Saturday. Anyone who knows me knows I just love their chilli cheese fries. So I in addition to my earlier statement, I could eat that, and nachos all day every day.

 Yes I did order that all for me. I was feeling sorry for myself. I took the rest home in a doggie bag!

Some sort of BBQ chicken burger thing. Meh. Despite my love of The Diner, I can never recommend their burgers! 


And now I return back to veggies and fruit for the week...until next weekend that is!
