A team of ‘food experts’ – whatever that means – including Noma chef René Redzepi (Sanchez was once a dessert chef at Noma), foody-type bloggers, industry wonks and food writers have singled out Sanchez’s stall as having the best street food in the whole of Europe in Lonely Planet’s recent poll.
It’s a huge coup for Hija de Sanchez, which started out as a Mexican food truck in 2015.
Sanchez said that her idea “was born of my personal cravings for Mexican food”.
After spending most of her career working in high-end restaurants, she said that she “craved working in a place that was way more casual, something more approachable, and something that would have a connection to my soul”.
Along with the Torvehallerne stall, Sanchez has recently opened a restaurant in Kødbyen in Vesterbro.
