Greetings from Riberalta, nestled within the vibrant Bolivian Amazon! I’m excited to introduce you to the heart of Bolivian cuisine through our specialty, Salteñas. Bursting with flavors from my hometown, these empanadas are a cherished snack, featuring a delightful blend of beef/chicken, potatoes, onions and spices, all baked to perfection.

Having lived in Japan for two decades, I’ve combined my Japanese roots with Bolivian culinary traditions at our newly opened BOLIBAR. Join us on a taste adventure as we bring the rich culture of Riberalta to Japan, one delicious Salteña at a time. Immerse yourself in the fusion of Latin American gastronomy and Japanese warmth.

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!
