MEXIFEST 2016 Happy Memories !

Yelp, KanKun Sauce and the Mexican Chamber of Commerce came together to hold London’s  Mexican festival this year! The event was a massive celebration of Mexican Independence Day and showed off what Mexico is really all about. There were food, drinks, entertainment and fun, including tacos, paleta, Mexican sweets, cheeses and, of course, tequila (and really good tequila). Plus, a luchador ring with Mexican wrestlers and a real Mariachi band, all held in the legendary Spitalfields Market!

Thank you so much for joining us in MEXIFEST 2016. It  was an incredible day and was great to have the opportunity to meet so many lovely and spread the love for Mexican Food and its culture..” -Rolando Cardenas founder of KanKun Mexican Sauces-
