RANDE is a Mexican pop up restaurant exploring life beyond tacos and winding up somewhere between the traditional and inventive side of the cuisine. We’re talking labour intensive moles served with melt in your mouth pork tenderloin and perfectly puffed, inflatadas stuffed with homemade foams that will bring a tear to your eye.
All these tasty morsels are magically conjured in the makeshift kitchens of London’s hidden and forgotten nooks; laundromats, victorian boiler rooms and deserted warehouses are among the favourites.
For diners, the adventure starts as they walk down the road, timidly searching for this odd venue and getting a little bit lost along the way. They fumble through the door and find a party awaiting. They search for their group and bond with strangers who are equally perplexed by the evening they have embarked on. Communal tables are slow filled and diners are presented with four courses of Mexican delights.
And who dreams up these lunacies? The RANDE team is a group of renegades and dreamers. They take tequila shots and orders from their fearless (mad?) leader, Randy - who happens to have a hell of a lot of imagination … and cajones.
This is a dining experience unlike any other. Must be seen to be believed.
Join us for our upcoming dates.

The people running it were friendly and fun. The group itself was lively and we stayed on long after chatting. It's great value for money!!" - Anonymous
