Happy 5th Birthday to Us!

Where has the time gone? Five years ago today we had butterflies in our stomachs as we got set to open Cabana Stratford, and since then we’ve opened 9 more restaurants in 3 cities (with number 11 opening in Southampton this December), published 2 cookbooks, had 2 Pop-Ups and introduced lots and lots of customers to our street food, cocktails and skewers.

If we do say so ourselves, that’s some pretty impressive stats!


That means we’ve served:

541,973 Spicy Malagueta Chickens (that’s 34,000 tonnes, or over 50 (FIFTY!) Christ the Redeemer Statues!)

479,244 Sweet Potato Fries (stand them end to end and that’s nearly the distance from London to Rio)

226,529 Classic Caipirinhas (that’s nearly 11,000 bottles of cachaça and over 100,000 limes…or a lot of very tipsy people…)


As you can imagine, we’ll be in a pretty celebratory mood this weekend, so if you want to soak up the party atmosphere, book a table at your nearest Cabana and wish us
Feliz Aniversário.

Want to see how it all began? Check out our video above, but have a tissue ready…it’ll give you all the feels…

Thanks for being part of our journey!
