El Pastor is a small group of Mexican taquerias in London, inspired by the decade the founders spent in Mexico City, running cult nightclub, El Colmillo and searching for the city’s best al pastor taco. The Pastor restaurants make all of their tortillas in-house using heritage Mexican corn and offer tacos, tostadas, quesadillas, mezcal, tequila and lively scenes. The original El Pastor was opened on Stoney Street, just off Borough Market in December 2016, and met with public and critical acclaim. Casa Pastor and Plaza Pastor followed in Coal Drops Yard in October 2018, and El Pastor Soho, the newest in the gang, opened in June 2021 at 66-67 Brewer Street.
