Our Stores


After living in Texas for a year, Ben Fordham returned to London incredulous as to why the food of Mexico, so well represented across the US, had been so neglected in his home country. A series of chance meetings led him to a head chef who shared his passion for this wonderful, fresh food. That chef was Felipe Fuentes Cruz who brings a unique quality and unrivalled cooking pedigree to the restaurant group. Together they have developed a simple and fresh menu that showcases the best of Mexico’s food and drink.

The simple menu is built around burritos, tacos, and margaritas but also includes antojitos (Mexican light bites), tres leches cake and homemade drinks and salads. Head Chef and co-founder, Felipe creates a seasonally changing menu delivering classic favourites and exciting innovations.

This simplicity and high quality remain at the core of Benito’s and its success. Benito’s Hat is much more than fast-food burrito joint, it is also a place with a welcoming, lively, fiesta-vibe during the day and well into the evening atmosphere. It understands Mexican food and drink and the culture that comes with it.

Our restaurants capture Mexico’s rich culinary culture and vibrant street food scene in funky and warm atmospheres. Grab a quick bite at lunch or relax over a margarita in the evening. We love spending time in our restaurants and know you will too. Whether it is a breakfast taco and coffee, a quick ‘grab-and-go’ for the business crowd, a break from a day’s shopping to recharge, or a fulfilling meal and a few margaritas to kick start an evening out, Benito’s Hat offers a welcoming, character-filled environment throughout the day.
