Dan HoughtonEric PartakerThe thing is that not only work in Skype connected Eric Partaker and Dan Houghton, but also their mutual interest in food. Especially in Mexican one. But there appeared a problem. Finding good Mexican food in London was like finding a needle in a haystack. But these guys found a solution. They quitted their jobs and traveled around Mexico City, Zihuatenejo, Ixtapa (and a few other places hard to spell), as well as Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco – home to three of the largest Mexican communities in the USA. And all this to find a culinary inspiration.

They also found a good team for their start-up during their journey. Finally in 2007 Dan and Eric opened their own restaurant with Mexican food – Chilango. Now they have restaurants throughout London and have won a host of awards.
