Local Dealer is the brainchild of J. Paquito, your most fav. taco hustler.
I took my backpack in 2017 and moved my ass to Mexico to feel the vibes, smell the delicious flavours and eat the best food in the world. Arriving in Mexico was love at first sight. What an amazing place this is!!
When I came back from my crazy trip through the country of Mexico I wanted to introduce the flavour I had experienced to Amsterdam. In way that celebrates both what I learnt in Mexico and what we have naturally and locally here. Local Dealer brings together all of my loves; food, culture, design and celebrates each and everyone of my amazing team.
We look forward to welcoming you to Local Dealer.

Local Dealer we are! The best Mexican street food in Amsterdam. The Tacos we make are our take on the Nº 1 street food of Mexico. Our ceviche’s are a crossover between Mexico and Peru. We know how important is a good start, so that’s why we serve some snacks to start with like our corn tortillas freshly made Chilaquiles. And Of course we do dessert; churros and paletas.
Sunday’s are made for our Mexican Brunch with delicious Huevos rancheros or Breakfast burritos!
For globetrotters we don’t forget Take Away, we do our Tacos recipes in to Burritos version!
We work with fresh products, we ferment in house and brew our own tepache and agua de Jamaica that we serve as sodas and use for our signature cocktails like Tiki Tepache or Hibiscus sour.
SOUL FOOD IS NOT ONLY HAPPY BELLY FOOD, BUT ALSO FOOD FOR THE SOUL.
Art is another way to unite people, touch them and telling stories. Local dealer showcases young Mexican artists that we like and want to promote across borders.
1st collaboration : Ana Paula
Artist, friend to become and power girl she is. In time I got to know Ana through a mutual Mexican friend that lives here in Amsterdam. I was searching for young Mexican creatives and she came with Ana. We started talking and brainstorming about possible collaborations for the future. Not knowing at that time that a Corona virus would pressure cook a perfect plan to start with. An online gallery showcasing her photos through the local dealer website and through our Instagram as an exhibition.
