Today he’s running multiple venues across LA, and now it’s time to expand Trejo’s Tacos outside of the US.
In September 2023 Trejo’s Tacos announced their opening in Notting Hill by the end of the year. However, no official opening date was announced by the end of December, so it’s likely that the restaurant will open in early 2024.
Trejo’s Tacos is set to open in Portobello Road in the heart of Notting Hill, one of London’s most frequented areas, loved by tourists and locals alike.

Alongside with classics Mexican tacos, Trejo’s Tacos will also serve healthier taco fillings as well as options for the most different dietaries, such as gluten-free, celiac, paleo and vegan, just to name a few.
“When we launched Trejo’s Tacos in LA, our aim was to serve better version of Mexican food that won’t clog your arteries.” – Trejo said when asked about the new opening in London. “We’ve taken out the stuff that isn’t healthy, without losing the great taste and flavour.” – he added.
In Mexico, recipes are typically passed through generation to generation and that’s what inspired the original concept of Trejo’s Tacos. They use generations of recipes the Trejo’s family constantly improved over decades.
On the menu there will be breakfast burritos, steak asada tacos with pepita pesto, cauliflower taco, Baja-style beer-battered fish and blackened salmon, along with tons of other mouth-watering dishes.
The restaurant is a massive 3,000 square feet 2-storey building with about 100 seats: 70 inside and 30 at the al-fresco terrace.
There will be a stylish cocktail bar offering mezcals, OG Margarita and Lavender Paloma for guests to complete their Mexican dining experience.
The basement will give space for a speakeasy bar with live DJ and late-night opening.
“I’m so ready to bring Trejo’s Tacos to London. I love the creativity that the city inspires, and I can’t think of a better place to launch internationally than with our friends in London.” – said Trejo.
