Bringing to Vancouver a taste of the amazing flavors and customer service of Mexico using sustainable local ingredients
Daniel ‘The Chef’ and Tito ‘The Brains’:
Two childhood friends from Veracruz reuniting in Vancouver 15 years later to begin an adventure together - uniting their hearts and skills to bring a unique experience to the people of their new home.
After 10 years of business management experience in Mexico, Israel and Canada, Tito ‘The Brains’ said, “Man, I know what to do!” and called Daniel ‘The Chef’, who at the time owned a Culinary School in Veracruz and said, “Dude, I’ve known you all my life and you are an amazing Chef! Lets start something together”.
Tito ‘The Brains’ and Daniel ‘The Chef’ united forces and after many months of strategizing and many beers, MARIMBA was born.
MARIMBA began with the idea of bringing the delicious taste of Mexico using the amazing local ingredients offered in BC. Offering a fusion between the cuisine from the Gulf of Mexico and the diverse palate of ingredients from BC, MARIMBA’s goal is to serve real Mexican food while supporting local vendors and suppliers.
The Food Truck
Why a Food Truck you ask?
The question was once asked, “How can we have as many different people as possible experience MARIMBA?”.
Tito ‘The Brains’ and his beautiful family having lived in Vancouver for many years had attended all the amazing events the City has to offer and wanted to make sure MARIMBA would too.
Daniel ‘The Chef’ wanted a Commissary Kitchen to assure the best quality of food - to have space to HAND MAKE every single empanada from scratch, and to be able to provide MARIMBA with a top culinary production.
From the Food Truck and the Commissary Kitchen MARIMBA can reach and attend the most important events -Street fest, catering, concerts, weeding, farmers markets, festivals, etc.
