About us

Arriba Arriba is a colourful Mexican street food hang-out with South American influences. Whether you’re craving for tacos or in the mood for an extensive Mexican feast, Arriba is your place to be. 

In a country where fifty percent of the population buys its food on the streets, it is no wonder that the literal meaning of the word street food or ‘antojitos’ is cravings. Arriba wants to make it just as easy to stop by for a lean and mean taco pit stop or a full-blown lunch. The tacos are made with authentic Mexican corn tortillas crafted by Taiyari with organic corn using the nixtamalisation proces and vulcanic stones, a method dating back to the old Aztecs. The toppings vary from crispy pescado with crunchy cabbage and lime, or rib-eye with chimichurri and avocado, to pulpo with sweet potato and pickled onion.
