Inspired by trips to visit family in California, founder Thorne was stuck to find many authentic Mexican soft corn tacos in London.
Tacos are a time honoured staple in Mexico and California and after an epic 'taco tour' of the west coast in 2018 to discover, learn about and eat many many tacos. Thorne spent a year testing recipes on friends and family and started with a pop-up called Tacoshak, in a local cafe in Deptford, SE London (once they'd shut their doors for the evening). After four sell-out weeks, Thorne went on to do several successful pop-ups and residencies in pubs, bars and taprooms across London.
After the global pandemic hit in March 2020, Thorne wanted to continue spreading tacos and so DIY Taco Kits were born. At first Thorne hand-delivered them locally every Friday. With more orders coming in and more demand for taco kits outside of SE & E London, Thorne partnered with London and Nationwide couriers, along with the meal kit platform Plateaway to help deliver kits much further a field.
We hope you enjoy.
