Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, Nick started cooking aged 15, working as a commi chef. He went on to work in Barcelona, Berlin and Stockholm before moving to Mexico City where he joined the team at Pujol, one of Mexico’s most celebrated restaurants. Now based in London, Nick founded Tacos Padre in 2017, appearing at Meatopia and various pop ups in London, Mexico City, Portugal, and Berlin before finally opening his first permanent taqueria at Borough Market Kitchen at the end of 2019. Tacos Padre has been inspired by Nick’s extensive travels around the country – the flavours, colours, sights, and sounds of Mexico’s street food, markets, and diverse regional cuisines are all distilled into the vibrant dishes at Tacos Padre. By day, the Borough Market taqueria serves tacos and Mexican small plates and on summer weekend evenings, the stage is set for a full dinner service, as outdoor tables are set up outside the stall, with lots of tropical plants to bring a tropical vibe. Tacos Padre also offers DIY taco kits for nationwide delivery, as well as salsas, rubs, and cocktails which are all made in-house from scratch.
