A delightful haunt for Mexican food in Camden
Café Chula is perhaps Camden’s greatest unsung hero. While better known fish and chip shop Poppies and Honest Burgers attract lengthy queues, this unassuming Mexican easily rivals anything they can produce.
Nachos are the real deal, freshly made along with piquant salsa and chunky guacamole. The torta Cubana is the now hotly tipped Cuban sandwich, a deep filled baguette with ham, slow cooked pork, mustard, Emmental, gherkin and chipotle mayonnaise, and there’s certainly no scrimping on ingredients. Huevos rancheros is a substantial dish of beans and fried eggs on a tortilla, with melted Oaxaca cheese.
On a previous visit we had a classic burrito stuffed with tasty steak, rice, beans and salad, while the huevos a la Mexicana was a filling dish of scrambled eggs, chorizo, diced potato, peppers and buttered toast.
Service can be a little slow but gregarious; we’re given an extra half of a Bloody Mary (made with tequila instead of vodka naturally) as an apology for the delay. Our bill for brunch, which includes two cocktails priced at £8 each, comes to around £40. It’s a delightful haunt for Mexican food in Camden.

This is a pleasant all day Mexican in Camden Lock. Portions are generous and the food is good, we had 'huevos a la Mexicana', scrambled eggs with tomato and peppers, served with potatoes and brown buttered toast, and a tasty burrito stuffed with steak, beans and rice. Service was great, it was a busy lunchtime but they rushed out our food as one of us had to return to work. Will go again.
