Pocho, a new street food kitchen from the team behind Clerkenwell- and Soho-based Breddos Tacos, has today launched at the street food collective Street Feast Giant Robot, a self-styled “rooftopia” in Canary Wharf.

Pitched as the bring of “LA to London with a Southern Californian-inspired menu of sliders, tacos and tostadas,” which will be served six days a week at the new venue. Breddos began as a street food stall, at the same location as other cult street food-to-restaurant, Bao, on Netil Market, close to London Fields in 2011. Late in 2016 it opened its first permanent site in Clerkenwell before adding a second on Kingly Street in Soho last autumn.

Pocho will include on its menu four tacos: Beef brisket barbacoa; Californian fried chicken; confit pork belly; and smoked cauliflower. Two tostadas — spicy hamachi ceviche with daikon coleslaw, avocado and peanut; and beetroot poké (??) with miso, meyer lemon, queso fresco, mint and pecans — will join a new list of Pocho sliders (mini burgers): Either a jalapeño cheeseburger with aged-beef patty, butter-braised jalapeños, American and blue cheeses; or a vegetarian burger with crumbed potato cake, cheddar, chipotle. Both burgers are served with lettuce and “Pocho” (read secret) sauce.

Sides will include a selection of Pocho fries with cheese sauce, beef brisket, sour cream, pickled chile and coriander; crispy corn chips with guacamole; confit chicken wings glazed with honey-habanero sauce and more.

Pocho is currently open Monday to Saturday at Giant Robot and, in early April this year, will launch at Dinerama on Great Eastern Street in Shoreditch.
