Avotaco, Malta’s most popular Mexican street food chain, has announced that it has closed the doors of two of its outlets – those found in Mriehel and at the Malta International Airport (MIA).

The eatery’s journey has been a considerable one, with Avotaco having opened first as a food truck in 2016. Following its success, the eatery found a permanent location in Ta’ Xbiex in 2018, followed by the opening of two other outlets in Mriehel (2020) and Malta International Airport’s renovated food court (2022).

The establishment took to social media to share that this is part of its ‘strategic plan to revisit [their] roots’ and put the focus back on the outlet where it all began, in Ta’ Xbiex. The Avotaco team claims that fans of the chain can expect innovation in this eatery’s new chapter, while thanking customers for their loyalty and support throughout Avotaco’s journey.
