With their menu of Mexican classics, Flaming Cactus were one of the first of the new breed. They understood that style was as important as substance.Richard Johnson, British Street Food Awards, 2012
Welcome to Flaming Cactus
Bringing the soul of Mexico to the heart of British festival culture, we serve award-winning Mexican food at music festivals and events.
Crowned one of the ‘Founding Fathers’ of the UK Street Food Revolution (‘Street Food Revolution’, 2011), we have been dishing out high-quality, fresh and nourishing food to festival-goers since 2003.
Our recipes include chilli con carne made with locally sourced beef, using only the leanest cut of meat; chicken marinated in our own chipotle chilli sauce for a deliciously smoky flavour; fresh vegetables, delivered directly to our door at each event; our own Pico de Gallo salsa, packed with fresh tomatoes, finely diced onions, green chillies, fresh coriander and a splash of lemon and lime; and our own homemade guacamole.
We spend many hours freshly preparing our food from scratch each day and serve it right before our customers’ eyes. No nasties - what you see is what you get!
