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, wowing the city's office workers with our crazy good jackfruit. They couldn't believe it wasn't meat!
Along the way we collaborated with heaps of incredible chefs, cooked at lots of sparkly events and never stopped innovating.
We spent several summers slinging thousands of tacos at UK's biggest music festivals (here's looking at you Glasto!) before finding our first permanent home at KERB's Seven Dials Market. The biggest & best of its kind!
In August 2020 (after a bit of a delay due to you know what!) we opened our first 'proper' restaurant in Soho's fave foodie community: Kingly Court.
And that's just the beginning! Stay tuned in 2022 - we've got heaps of exciting new projects on the go! Our tacos might be coming to a spot near you soon!
