Muchacho to open authentic Mexican street food-style takeaway

Muchacho to open authentic Mexican street food-style takeaway

A new takeaway aims to roll away clichés associated with Mexican food as it plans to open an authentic Latin American eatery in Aberdeen.

Scheduled to open on Rose Street in December, Muchacho aims to bring authentic Mexican cuisine to Aberdeen whilst catering for different tastes and dietary requirements.

Creating 15 jobs from chefs to counter staff, the street food takeaway will look to employ a further five members of staff as the company expands.

Muchacho'S Elena Aspe said: "The Muchacho team is on a mission to provide the authentic flavours of Mexican street food to the people of Aberdeen.

"Our team agreed that there is no authentic offering in the city, and we want to dispel the clichés of what Mexican food is and educate our customers. We aim to provoke discussion around ‘what is Mexican food?’ as there are many misconceptions."

Authentic touches such as Mexican soft drink brand Jarritos are planned for the site

Freshly made salsas and guacamole will be served alongside soft corn taco shells with a variety of fillings, including slow-roasted pulled pork with a hint of citrus, dishes with varying levels of spice and homemade gluten free corn chips.

Muchacho will also offer a naked burrito, offering those with sensitivity to wheat a dining option as well.

Elena added: "Everything we prepare is set to excite the senses, and capture the true authentic flavours of Mexico.

"We will be using fresh, healthy and local produce as well as importing specialist ingredients direct from Mexico."

Work on the Rose Street site is set to begin in the coming weeks, with the dining stop designed to encapsulate the vibrancy of a Mexican street market with a mixture of potent colour and sound.

Elena added: "Customers will feel like they have been transported to the warm, bustling streets of Mexico and will be able to see cooking first hand in our open kitchen."
