After conquering many of the London street food markets @tacutacu have taken up a six week residency in Casa Bleu just at the end of Brick Lane.  We went along to try this place last night as a pre china celebration meal. Here's our little review....

Firstly the bar casa Bleu is an interesting place.  I would call it more of a cocktail bar than a pub.  The decor could be describe as 'vintage'.  The drinks menu is expensive for my liking with a draught beer costing £5 but I suppose you are paying for the location really.  This kind of reflects in how busy the bar was (just the two of us to be precise).

Below is a picture of the menu.  We chose the white fish tacos, the duck tacos, 2 burgers, some fries and the haloumi sticks (fatty mcfat fats ).

As always we arrived early and this meant that there was a bit of a wait on the food as the kitchen got up and running but the wait was worth it! The food came out at a decent pace and kept flowing! The fish tacos were seasoned to perfection and coated in a lovely light batter oh and the slaw to accompany it...well that was delicious!

The duck and cheese tacos were also nice and a decent size however for us they needed some sauce to give it that vava boom but ulitmately we were waiting for our burgers to arrive!

Unfortunately the shrimp burger wasnt prepped so we both had the 'Hot Havana' - 28 day aged beef blended with spicy chorizo topped with all sorts of delights including chipotle garlic mayo. The burger was really tasty, cooked medium rare and you could really taste the chorizo smokey meatiness running through! It is safe to say we smashed through both our burgers! Our only criticism was the bun which we were advised was due to the bakery he was using and would soon be rectified!
We washed both our burgers down with a side of fries and some halloumi sticks which were both delicious and big portions for the price. We really liked the burger sauce which accompanied the chips and the paprika sprinkled on them was lovely.

Despite being stuffed we really wanted to try the mojito cheesecake as these are two of our fav things however it wasn't set in time so we will try that when we are back from China!
We really enjoyed our meal at TacuTacu and really recommend it....maybe if it was popping up at a different location it would have the publicity it truly deserves!
