Have you eaten at La Choza?

Owner's description

 


 


La Choza was born in 2012, a small but perfectly formed vibrant pink Mexican street food eatery on a tucked away corner of Gloucester Road in Brighton’s North Laine.


The lively creation of lifelong foodies and friends Aoife Sweeney and Annie Gelpey who shared a passion for all things Mexican from Frieda Kahlo to tequila. On a mission to bring the authentic taste of Mexico to their seaside hometown they made frequent inspiring tasting tours to Mexico where the duo roamed markets, ate at street stalls and shared meals with locals. They brought the best recipes home with them and created a menu of outstanding and, most importantly, authentic Mexican delights.


La Choza soon became an integral part of the outstanding Brighton food scene attracting locals of all ages and streams of tourists who formed an almost constant queue around the block. Banging reviews, top awards and grateful testimonials soon followed.


In 2017, La Choza expanded and opened the doors to a two-story venue on Brighton & Hove’s main street, Western Road, with a larger venue, rocking cocktail bar and expanded menu.


Both venues are decorated with funky folk art, neon lights, graffiti, sugar skulls and vivid flowers and are staffed by a friendly, dedicated team who keep the place buzzing but it’s the food and drink that makes La Choza Brighton and Hove’s tastiest restaurant.
