At their heart, fish tacos are very simple; fish + tortilla = fish taco. Although, their history is much more complex. Ask any port town in Mexico and they’ll claim to be the birthplace of the famed fare. For as long as locals can remember, there has been a señora on the corner flipping the catch of the day into fresh tortillas. This week, we challenge you to do the same with our embellished version of this classic. Order our Fish Taquitos for delivery the week of August 15th and try a taste of Mexico’s rich and vibrant history!

Widely regarded as a Japanese classic, this crisp delicacy has a surprisingly international past. Hailing originally from Portugal, tempura can be traced back to the mid-16th century. Even so, the batter-frying technique is still a favourite among Japanese street vendors, or yatai, as they’re known. Celebrate the tradition with our fresh take on the classic in this week’s Shiitake Mushroom Tempura!
Originally from Cyprus, halloumi cheese has become a favourite among the Brits. It’s a unique and versatile cheese that holds its form when grilled, making it a staple among many street vendors. Wandering London you’re bound to come across the savoury aroma wafting from food stalls. Here you’ll find halloumi topping fresh flatbread where it’s typically joined by oregano, salad greens, and a hint of lemon juice. Order our Halloumi Cheese and Barley to your kitchen today and dig into this internationally-beloved fare!
Traditionally referred to as Bao, this ancient Chinese dish has become a favourite among North American street food connoisseurs. Depending on where you find them, these pillowy soft pockets come packed with anything from lotus seeds to spicy beef – but we like them best with a tender pork filling. Try our Pork Steamed Buns for yourself and let us know what you think!
