About us

After many years of work experience in Peru, Mexico and Brasil we decided that it was time to bring our knowledge back home. We started with several food trucks to sell our Latin-American street food dishes on festivals and events. Soon a stand in the food hall “Mout” in Hilversum followed and now we believe the time was ripe to open “Cantina Caliente”.

As always, our philosophy in the Cantina is simple: putting the amazing flavours and textures of what we believe to be the best dishes of Latin-America in the spotlight. We focus highly on flavour, authenticity, quality and sustainability. In the Cantina everybody is welcome; people who want to come for a coffee, special cocktail, full (vegan) tasting menu or just a snack. Every day we are happy to welcome you to our little Latin-American oasis in Amsterdam.
