Born and raised in Mexico, Carlito wanted to share the story of Mexican street food in his new home in the UK, as it’s such an important thread in the social fabric of Mexican culture. He founded a catering company in 2010, popping up at festivals all over the country, before opening Carlito Burrito in the heart of Brighton in 2012.
Carlito Burrito is an award -winning Mexican street food company and Brighton’s first Mexican owned restaurant. They have been innovating street food In the UK since 2010 with a period of play in European food markets and festivals. Their inspiration comes from the Mexican Pacific coast and our own family recipes.
Utilising traditional cooking methods, they blend the best fair trade chillis and spices from Mexico and the finest Sussex produce to deliver a unique flavour experience. All their tortillas are made to order, on site. As well as their totopos and salsas, like God intended to!
