¡Hola and welcome! Wherever you are in the world, today is the one date in the calendar that absolutely must be read in Spanish: Cinco de Mayo. It was originally the date when the Mexican army defeated the French at the Battle of Puebla, back on 5 May 1862. Now, it’s the day when Mexican culture is celebrated around the globe, and it’s no surprise that food plays a huge part in the event.
Any celebration that falls during the coronavirus lockdown requires some creativity to keep the festive spirit alive. To celebrate this one from the comfort of your home, all you need are crispy tacos, spicy fajitas, and creamy guacamole. Haven’t yet mastered Mexican cooking? Luckily, we know a few cafes and restaurants that will deliver these delicacies straight to your door.
But before we get to details, don’t forget to schedule a Zoom call with friends for your Cinco de Mayo party.
