El Tajín is an award winning small independent restaurant, led by myself, chef Martha Doyle, that prides itself in bringing authentic and unique Mexican flavours to Scotland.

Hailing from Veracruz in Mexico, I moved to Scotland and opened El Tajín in 2017 in Montrose to promote the diversity and complexity of the Mexican cuisine. We offer a savoury tour of the delicious regional recipes from all over Mexico, complemented with our unique and extensive collections of Mexican wines, Tequilas and Mezcals in a relaxed Cantina-style environment. Tex-Mex we certainly are not!

We are unique in that we actively source our ingredients from niche micro producers from Angus and Aberdeenshire and give them our own authentic Mexican twist. After hearing from my Scottish husband, Charles how great Scotland’s natural larder is, I made it my mission to get out and source the best local produce to showcase on my menus. I discovered quickly what an array of quality produce was available in Angus and surrounding regions by putting on my wellies and visiting local producers on their farms. Our local vegetable supplier sources fresh speciality Mexican ingredients such as fresh cactus, jicama, plantain, jalapeño and poblano chillies, too.

Due the adversity time we moved from restaurant to a Delivery Catering Services with more than street food, offering local, seasonal sourced products with a delicious Mexican Twist. Street food, fine restaurant food, artisanal, regional & seasonal dishes, quality Mexican & Scottish Fare.
