Tacos

Arguably the most famous Mexican food in the world. Tacos are incredibly versatile as, essentially, a taco is any filling served in a tortilla. They are typically eaten without any utensils and are utterly delicious. They're small (usually no more than three or four inches across), and are eaten as a street snack. We recommend having 3 or 4 if you are looking for a meal.

All of our tacos are served on soft white corn tortillas (which are naturally gluten free) they are gently heated on a griddle until lightly charred. We then place the filling and usually several layers of garnish. Pictured above (left) is our short rib taco which features beef short ribs slow simmered in a spicy tomato/Guajilo sauce until the meat falls apart. It is garnished with fresh chopped white onion and a lime wedge.

The fillings of our tacos vary greatly as our small menu changes frequently (usually every 2-3 months). We like to try new things and provide a number of dishes whilst maintaining food quality.  All our food is based off of authentic Mexican street food, and we have a real emphasis on focusing on local produce, fresh ingredients and seasonal menus. Our sample menu (below) highlights some of the food that you are likely to find on our menu.

Whenever we are at a public event we offer a small menu, of no more than 3 main items, and this menu will always have both a meat option and vegetarian/vegan option

Tortas

The taco and the torta are the twin pillars of Mexican street food, but where the taco is small and snacklike the torta is big and a full meal in it’s own right.The Mexican torta takes the same taco flavors and turns them up to eleven, offering a world of fluffy buns and spicy meats that no food lover should leave uneaten.

We make our tortas using freshly made Telera bread from a bakery local to us in Aylesbury. The telera roll is a staple bread for Mexican sandwiches is made in bakeries all over Mexico; it's a smaller cousin of French bread, with a softer texture inside, and a crispy crust on the outside. Ours are split and filled with our the same fillings that we use in our tacos. Although occasionally we will feature a special that is only available in one of our tortas such as our Albondigas tortas which are like a Mexican meatball sub, it features Mexican Meatballs with three chile tomato salsa. Topped with Parmesan or Cojita cheese (depending upon the availability of the Mexican Cojita cheese).

Our tortas feature the same fillings as our tacos so whatever is on the menu is available as a taco or as a torta. The choice is yours :)
