Who We Are

We’ve been serving Mexican cuisine in Japan for more than a decade. As a food truck business, we’ve participated in major events like Summer Sonic, Sapporo Snow Festival, Rugby World Cup to name a few and we’ve also opened pop up restaurants across many major cities all over Japan.

During the outbreak of Covid-19 in 2020, we were forced to close our food trucks and restaurants and it left us no choice but to explore new ways to serve our customers: that is how we started Meat Express.

With our extensive knowledge and experience with Mexican cuisine, we strongly believe our Mexican menu is the best — or at least one of the best — available in Japan.

If you haven’t tried our tacos or any of our Mexican bites yet, give it a try and let us know what you think.

Let’s Meat!
