BEST wedding food supplier and Mexican food you'll find in the UK!

Philip is an absolute pleasure to liaise with and is so flexible with your needs. We absolutely loved the taco truck, however due to our venue's restrictions, we weren't able to get a vehicle onsite to serve the food, therefore Philip went out of his way to acquire a gazebo with all of their brilliant branding and vibe to give our somewhat traditional venue a bit of a cool look for the evening party - if that doesn't show the lengths Punk Tacos will go to to make your day perfect, nothing will!

We also spoke to so many of our friends and family who said how amazing the tacos were and kept being asked how we found something as brilliant and unique as Punk Tacos. Would use again and again for any event! Thank you Philip and team!

Guests still raving about the food 3 months later

Phil was a joy from start to finish. He got our desire to avoid plastic, keep the food informal and provide a vegetarian only menu with more than a single vegan option. Months later, I’m still having conversations with guests about how great the food was! Couldn’t have been happier. Plus he wore his ‘cats eating tacos in space’ shirt.

The perfect Mexican food for our colourful wedding!

Punk Tacos were superb with us from start to finish. After having issues with our original caterer, Philip made us feel at ease and we are now extremely grateful that we were able to have Punk Tacos for our wedding. We were able to visit Philip and his taco truck for a full tasting of his entire menu and he was extremely flexible in ensuring we had what we wanted for the big day. The food itself was incredible - all our guests commented on how good it was - and the portions were extremely generous. To ensure none of it went to waste we asked for leftovers to be packaged up so that we could take it home and continue the memories of our wedding for days to follow. We could not recommend Punk Tacos enough and we’d like to thank Philip once again for being a massive part of what was an incredible wedding. Becca and Jack.

Amazing tacos, wonderful service, highly recommend

Punk tacos are the best tacos I've had in the UK - no joke! We had Punk Tacos as our evening food and it was so so delicious - we loved them so much, and guests also raved about them. The just like honey pork and the plantain were our favourites - just incredible. Philip is super responsive and friendly and I'm just trying to think of events I can get Punk Tacos back again!! Highly recommend.

Incredible Food, Incredible Service

We cannot recommend Philip and the Punk Tacos van enough. From our first visit to a pop-up where we tried some of the options, to packing up at the end of our wedding day, Philip was incredibly helpful, organised and of course provided delicious food. Despite some last-minute technical challenges, Philip was prepared for all eventualities and put on the perfect set-up for our day which was relaxed and informal.

The food is incredible - tacos, side salads, chips + dips, and our guests were full of praise for everything. We had questioned if we'd planned enough for everyone, but Philip knew what he was talking about and there was the right amount for everyone, plus a bit extra!

The van is really cool, and all the nice touches like the serving bowls and signs really make it a unique dining experience for the day.

The only downside is having to find another excuse to go and get some Punk Tacos now that the wedding is over! Luckily we're nearby for our future taco fixes.

Thanks again to Philip and the team, and if you're in any doubt about booking him for your day - DO IT!

Fantastic vegan tacos for our outdoor wedding

Punk Tacos provided the perfect catering for our outdoor wedding--we always knew we wanted street food and had been struggling a bit to find the right vegan street food option in Sussex. Punk Tacos offers meat and dairy options, but they also do the most fantastic vegan food, with innovative and delicious flavours. Philip was really generous in offering us samples so that we could choose our menu for the day--we went to Battle to try the tacos out and ended up having about five a piece! In the end, we chose the plantain, sweet potato, and mushroom tacos, but there were a couple of other vegan options we could have gone for. Philip was also really responsive and flexible about dealing with guests' allergies; as one of our guests turned out to be allergic to coriander, he labeled every salad and dish that had coriander in it. We would definitely hire Punk Tacos again if we needed to cater an event!

Excellent food with a perfect vibe

I couldn’t have been happier with Punk tacos, the contact, tasting and booking was amazingly easy and the food on the day was astounding! The service, the look of the truck, the vibe, and letting us take photos in the van! All of it was just perfect! Thank you ❤️

Punk Taco's saved the day

Punk Taco's came to the rescue when our original caterer pulled out of our wedding at the last minute, and we are so glad!

The communication and flexibility shown by Philip throughout the process was amazing, only second to the food itself!
The canapés, mixed bowls, salads and dips served on our big day went down a storm, our guests were blown away by the alternative catering for a wedding. It proved to be so much more fun and engaging than a traditional wedding meal. The fact the menu already suited a number of our guests with particular dietary requirements resolved so many headaches that would ordinarily persist.

- Amazing quality food & lots of it
- Wonderful presentation
- Great communication & organisation
- Something for everyone

Would recommend Punk Taco's in a heartbeat!
