Who We Are

In 2014 we set out to smash preconceptions that vegan food was all lettuce & lentils by making awesome, great-tasting food - that just happens to be vegan.

Innovation & independence have always been at our core: we jump to our own beat and have never followed the status quo. We’ve been at the forefront of the street food revolution in London, and we’re damn proud!

Club Mexicana began as a Saturday night supper club in a Hackney cafe- a 3 course taco feast accompanied by our Wham! records, blow up flamingos, and LOTS of tequila.

We moved from supper club to street food and started smashing it on the London scene with the likes of Street Feast & KERB.

After several summers slinging thousands of tacos at UK's biggest music festivals, we secured our first longer term home at KERB Seven Dials Market.

In August 2020 we opened our first 'proper' restaurant in Soho's fave foodie community: Kingly Court.

2023 saw us launch our biggest and bestest location yet, in the heart of Shoreditch; and we finally made it south of the river, with an intimate little taco shop in Brixton.

And that's just the beginning! Stay tuned in 2024 - we've got heaps of exciting new projects on the go....our tacos might be coming to a spot near you soon!

50 Londoners who make the city awesome

"London has gone vegan crazy, and in the vanguard of this tofu-fuelled movement is Meriel Armitage with her restaurant Club Mexicana. She tackles snobbish preconceptions about vegan food by pumping it with big Mexican flavours"

London Restaurant Festival Awards, 2018

Maverick of the Year

"Founder Meriel Armitage ditched her job in advertising to jump in the kitchen and thank goodness she did, otherwise Londoners would have never tasted her brilliant plant-based creations."

Top 100 Cheap Eats in London

"One of the best in the vegan business is Club Mexicana, which cooks up seriously good Mexican food without a meat or dairy product in sight. Any one of Club Mexicana’s tacos could be on this list, so it’s a good job you can get three for £12.50. Get your chops round their surprisingly meaty jackfruit tacos and marvel at the baja tofish manages to be tofu and not fish."

Evening Standard, 2024

London's Best Vegan Restaurants

"This trio of vegan Mexicans can be found in Soho, Shoreditch and Brixton but began life as a street-food stall feeding festival-goers. That spirit of exuberance lives on in its zingy treatment of seitan, tofu and jackfruit, with a trio of tacos (“beef”, “shawarma” and “rib”) as good an introduction as any to the style of cooking. Elsewhere are all the classics of empanadas, nachos and burritos (the latter served in a wrap or bowl), washed down, of course, with margaritas and beers."
