Six months into trading, we were visited by the Director of the world's largest chicken wing competition, Wing Fest. We'd been going to Wing Fest as a customer since 2016 and never in our wildest dreams thought we'd ever be competing. So we couldn't believe it when we took home three awards in our debut year – we were so overwhelmed that we quit our day jobs right there on stage as we received the awards.
Since then, we've thrown ourselves at every opportunity we can. We've traded at some of the UK's best festivals including Glastonbury, Big Feastival, Camp Bestival and Secret Garden Party, and we went on to pick up 12 awards during our first Wing Fest tour. It's not always been easy, but we truly love what we do, and we're still blown away by the support we've received throughout our journey.
After getting furloughed from our jobs in 2020, we decided to turn a negative into a positive and spent the next six months refining our home recipes, while also working on branding.
Soon, we were ready to bring our dishes to the public and began trading at a market in Brick Lane – however, this also coincided with the return to our day jobs. We worked two jobs solidly for a whole year, preparing food in the evenings and trading at weekends, before returning to our 9-5 the next week.
In a short amount of time, we've managed to build up an amazing following of loyal customers and this taco bar is the perfect spot for everyone we've met on our journey, as well as new customers who have yet to try our food!
