LOTERIA – LOS ANGELES TAQUERIA | LOTERIA will be a Mexican street food stand operating in the streets of Helsinki, Finland.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles and have always been passionate about cooking food. Mexican food in particular has influenced me, from spicy to sweet dishes – it continues to inspire me to create and expand my knowledge in this beautiful cuisine. Living in Finland for the past 9 years, I began to miss the food I loved and with limited ingredients here, I had to start from scratch to create the dishes I was longing for. Now I have an extensive menu that takes me back to my hometown! This is what I want to deliver to my new home, Helsinki.
Mexican food has been getting more and more popular since I moved here in 2009. This has inspired me to gain experience in a professional kitchen, research and establish my own business starting with a small taco stand – exactly the way Mexicans did it when they migrated North & started a food revotution that is now known all over the world.
For many years I’ve wanted to open my own business to share my passion and love for food with as many people as possible. My hope is that one day, this will be a place for friends and families to meet & enjoy good food and drinks.
The goal for this crowd fundraiser is to help me get the equipment I need to get started. Also, to help spread the word and gain some momentum in my early days. Donations will be greatly appreciated and I plan to give back to my backers by providing a snack, meal or even cater an event.
This will be a one man operation and I will be selling my food via an eco-friendly mobile food stand – a Tricyle 🙂 While this method has its challenges, it gives me the freedom and flexibility to be able to start and potentially grow this business as fast as I can.
All contributions help, including helping me spread the word to get this out to as many people as possible. I appreciate any help you can send my way!
