La Taqueria, FoodPreneur

Mexican food straight to Dubai.

What or who is the inspiration behind your start-up?

The inspiration behind our place comes from our Mexican heritage. The fact that we are far away from home, we miss our food and we couldn’t find a place that could do it the way we wanted.

Tell us why your business is the “best thing since sliced bread’.

We are not trying to make it fancy or reinvent the dishes. We want to share with everyone the feeling we get when we eat this food and it gives us the feeling of being home. It’s just like being in our grandma’s or mothers kitchen.

We think our business will be great not only because of the food, but also because of the team behind it. When you come to our place we will make you feel at home, and also it helps that if you want Mexican food.  When you come you are greeted by a Mexican, served by a Mexican and the food is cooked by a Mexican. This will give an extra something to the experience.

What is your favourite dish in the menu? Why?

As for our favourite dish we can’t really choose one. All of the are AMAZING! We have a good variety for everyone to enjoy. Of course the Sopa de tortilla (tortilla Soup) is a must!

What (lessons) have you learnt along the way that you would like to share with another Foodpreneur?

If we can share our experiences and what we have learned so far and give advice to others we would tell them to “be brave and go for it”.

It will be hard, and some days you won’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, but just keep your faith and believe in yourself and your dream, it will take a lot of energy and effort but at the end its worth it!
