We  are very sad to say that we have closed our doors at 22 Rivington St, EC2A 3DY. 


Santo Remedio is an intimate taqueria and dining room in the heart of Shoreditch. The menu is influenced by modern Mexico, from its street food to traditional festive fare. You will often find dishes inspired by the cuisine of Mexico City, Oaxaca, Yucatan, Hidalgo and Puebla, among other regions. 

We prepare everything on our menu in the restaurant. We make our marinades and salsas with fresh herbs and smoked dried chillies from Mexico. These include Ancho, Pasilla and Guajillo, which you will see in jars on the shelves of our kitchen, and which are fundamental ingredients in Mexican cooking. 

The corn tortillas we use for our tacos, tostadas, quesadillas and corn tortilla chips are gluten free and made with non-GMO corn. All our meat and chicken is from the UK and reared to the highest welfare standards. We use locally sourced produce as much as possible.

As a Slow Food member, we are proud to use 'Ark of Taste' ingredients, which are at risk of extinction because of industrial agriculture and other factors. These include blue corn from Mexico, Pasilla de Oaxaca chillies and Red Leicester cheese from England.

Santo Remedio is a popular Mexican expression, which means Holy Remedy. Mexico’s food is so central to its culture, that it is considered a remedy for almost anything.

At Santo Remedio we want to satisfy your cravings for proper Mexican food, which for me is also a taste of home.

Our Story

The bricks and mortar location of Santo Remedio is the culmination of three years of catering, pop-ups and supper clubs, as well as residencies at Street Feast.

Santo Remedio was started by Edson along with his wife Natalie and was born out of a desire to share with Londoners just how varied and exciting Mexican food can be. At Santo Remedio there are no burritos, or fajitas. The reason is that these can not be found in Mexico, as they are in fact not Mexican.

The menu at Santo Remedio includes food that can be found in Mexico City, the Yucatan Penninsula and Mexico's culinary heartland Oaxaca, among other regions across the country. 

Mexico  is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world, and as such has a whole host of ingredients that come together to form an incredible variety of dishes. Santo Remedio offers Mexican food like tacos, ceviches and moles that can be found in Mexico's restaurants, homes and at its celebrations. 

Proper Mexican food is very hard to find in the UK. True Mexican cuisine is considered an intangible would heritage by UNESCO. In order to prepare some of the country's most celebrated dishes involves in depth knowledge of the cuisine as well as the use of high quality Mexican ingredients like cactus, grasshoppers, blue corn, chile de Arbol, Pasilla, chipotle Meco, which you will find in our dishes. 

We are also a member of Slow Food. The majority of Mexican cuisine is truly slow food, which involves marinating and cooking food for a long period of time for the salsas and marinades to give the dish a rich, deep flavour. 

At Santo Remedio we use several 'Ark of Taste' products, such as blue corn, which are ingredients that Slow Food considers to be in danger of extinction due to the industrialisation of the food chain. 

We are proud and excited to share with our customers the true cuisine of Mexico and hope that for those who have been there already it brings back wonderful memories and for those who have yet to go that it will inspire future travels to this incredible country.
