What is Cinco de Mayo
In 1862, the Mexican army fought off a French invasion of the city Heroica Puebla de Zaragozza. While the battle itself was relatively small. it was a symbolic win that helped seal Mexico's alliance with America.
The name of the festivities - Cinco de Mayo - is Spanish for the 5th of May, the date of the momentous occasion. These days, Cinco de Mayo is a colourful & inclusive that's all about celebrating Mexican heritage.
fuel your festivities
Base your meal with a White Street Corn Tortilla, cook your protein of choice with black beans, finish off your base with a smear of refried beans on your tortilla.
Layer your base with Jalapenos, cheese, avocado, tomato and lettuce for the perfect mix of textures and flavours.
Just like a cherry on top, we like to finish of our Tacos with Taco Sauce and Sour Cream!
