FIVE Minutes with Club Mexicana
From tacos and burritos to loaded nachos, the list of delicious Mexican food goes on and on. Now picture this: 100% vegan Mexican street food. A stroke of genius on the food scene, Club Mexicana has completely revolutionised the face of Mexican cuisine, offering favourites such as the Cheezeburger taco, ‘chorizo’ and sweet potato burrito and Mexican fried chick’n – all vegan, of course.
We speak to Meriel Armitage, the founder (and genius) behind Club Mexicana, Kingly Court’s latest opening.
What are the must-have dishes on the menu for Club Mexicana first-timers?
The To’fish taco, the Cheezeburger taco or the Mexican fried chick’n (MFC).
Where did you get the idea for vegan Mexican street food?
I was inspired by my travels in Mexico and street food traders in California, who were doing amazing things with bold flavours, and I wanted to bring that vibe to London. I think that perceptions of veganism can be that it is quite bland, but Club Mexicana is about showing that vegan food can be punchy and delicious.
Can you give us some insight into future vegan trends?
I feel like the ‘trends’ have been and gone; we’re in phase two now! Veganism has gone mainstream. No more trends, just a huge variety of options at every level.
