Club Mexicana to launch new vegan concept this weekend

Club Mexicana, specialists in Mexican vegan food, are opening a new concept, The Burger Bar, at Netil Market this Saturday, 26 January.

Founded by Meriel Armitage, Club Mexicana has changed the perception of vegan cooking and built a reputation for the city’s best street food that just happens to be vegan.

Her new Burger Bar at Netil Market, with a menu packed with indulgent Mexican-twists on classic burgers, will sit alongside Dinerama in Shoreditch and London’s first 100% vegan pub, The Spread Eagle in Homerton.

The menu takes classic burgers and gives them the infamous Club Mexicana make-over, re-incarnating them as vegan dishes.

The menu will include; The Mexican Fried Chick’n Burger with annatto glazed fried ‘chick’n’, pickled cabbage and mustard mayo; Beer Battered ‘t0-fish’ with tartare sauce, deep fried capers, pickled cabbage and salsa verde; and Sticky Glazed ‘Ribs’ with slaw, pink onions and jalapeno.

For sides Meriel will bring her Loaded Nachos with guacamole, pink onions, salsa verde, pickled jalapenos and chipotle oil, Mexican Fries with chilli lime salt and hot sauce, as well as her cult-classic: Deep Fried Cheese served with Mexico city’s favourite hot sauce: Valentina.

They will also be serving Club Mexicana’s very own pale ale created in collaboration with Beer 52 and all natural wines.

Armitage said, ‘We’ve wanted to collaborate with Netil Market again for ages as we are big fans of their market. We did our very first street food event on the rooftop of Netil House, so there’s something qute nostalgic for us returning with our new Burger Bar. We want it to be a place where we can try new ideas, run specials and collaborations, whilst getting back to our street food roots putting us face to face with the most important people - our customers!’
