Mexican tacos de pastor in London?

My first post on the forum, so be gentle!

I'm looking for some authetic Mexican food in London, the burrito chains around Angel are not bad, but hardly authentic. I've tried Wahaca and another place in Covernt Garden whose name I forget, wasn't overly impressed.

I've heard Mestizo is supposed to be good, definitly on my list of places to try. What I'm after however are the simple, but delicious tacos that you get from taco stands all over Mexico. Carne asada, or pastor, with raw onion and coriander, lime and salt topped with green or red salsa. Simple but so good. Shouldn't have to break the bank or fly all the way to Mexico to get this, surely?

Can anyone help me satisfy my cravings?
