Say hello to the third street food vendor joining us this Summer at CRATE Walthamstow!
Getting their name for the Mexican word for grilled meat "Carne" started testing their culinary skills back in 2018 catering for private events before officially becoming a street food pioneer in March 2019 - just before the pandemic! That, however, didn't stop them from taking over the mother-taco world and they first set up shop at King's Cross Canopy market!
Founder Abraham is passionate about keeping the authenticity of Mexican street food having grew up in in Mexico City (the capital) and a Tijuana located in the North! Knowing first hand that there literally are over a hundred different ways to prepare the famous taco all over Mexico, Carne have mastered their iconic recipes with their signature dish being their soft corn shell tacos.
After looking at their menu (you're just going to have to wait a bit longer before laying eyes on it yourself), we can understand why they've named them selves grilled meat because the beef they fill their tacos with is cooked in traditional Mexican Adobo sauce - YUM - oranges and a secret blend of Mexican spices. Loaded on top is their pickled red onions and coriander.
How did we find such an amazing vendor for CRATE Walthamstow you ask? Well after the raging success at London's markets they found a home with Walthamstow's EAT17 at their Bishop Stortford site! And if that isn't high enough praise for you Stowers we don't know what is!
We cannot express how excited and honoured we are that Abraham and his team at Carne are opening up their second permanent location with us at CRATE Walthamstow!
If you don't know much about CRATE, you should definitely know that we are all about supporting small businesses and we cannot wait for you all to fall in love with Carne and to shine more light on their amazing food!
