Our Story

Hikuri Kitchen was created by Alberto, who lives in Scotland since 2010. Growing up in Mexico City, Alberto developed a keen interest in food and cooking from an early age thanks to his mother. Upon leaving Mexico, he noticed that most Mexican food abroad is merely an approximation, which could be done much better, if we only had the right ingredients.

Therefore we want to offer you a selection of some of the flavours that have made so many people fall in love with Mexican cuisine. From our kitchen to yours.

Hikuri is the local name for the peyote cactus, which comes from the desert in central Mexico and is the cornerstone of one of the country’s original ethnic groups, the Wixárikas (wee-rá-ri-kas). At Hikuri Kitchen through our selection of recipes and ingredients, we celebrate an ancient and deep connection to Mexican culture.

    Adobo has a festive feeling that has made it popular in many Mexican households. Whilst several other countries have their own versions of adobo, this particular one uses chicken cooked with several spices, guajillo, ancho and morita chillies, which give this dish a distinctive smoky flavour.

    “The tacos al pastor kit was delivered to the comfort of our home, came with the specialised ingredients in the right quantities and a very easy to follow recipe. The flavours were so authentic that we were transported to Mexico City in every bite and were left wanting to explore the other kits available”

    How refreshing to spend time cooking with fabulous new flavours and spices, and with an easy-to-follow recipe, the result was delicious real Mexican food.

    Cochinita pibil was honestly incredible, the pork literally melted in the mouth and seriously banged with flavour. Easily the best tacos I've ever made at home!

    Our commitment

    At Hikuri Kitchen, we want to elevate Mexican food from ‘just eating’, to a higher level by adding convenience to our specialised recipes and removing the hassle of looking for highly specific ingredients. In this way you will reduce costs and waste associated with buying unrealistic amounts of niche ingredients rarely used in other recipes.

    We are committed to our customers by sourcing our ingredients from the best available. Almost all of our spices are organic and we work hard on only using packaging that is either recyclable or re-usable.
