Maiz, a Mexican-themed food truck, is now serving customers at Dubai’s Kite Beach.

Maiz means corn and represents the cornerstone ingredient of Mexican cuisine. Aiming to be as authentic as possible, the concept serves street-style tacos made with corn tortillas instead of the flour alternative.

The food truck’s scope of operation includes catering both corporate and private events, as well as concerts across the UAE. For now, the truck will be stationed at Dubai’s Kite Beach.

Maiz Co-Founder Luma Makhlouf Al Assam said: “With a varied offering such as the one Maiz boasts, we are able to create some really cool custom catering options for everything from office lunches and kids’ birthday parties to weddings and graduations, whatever the fiesta, we are there for you.”

The truck prepares al pastor sirloin, which is made up of sirloin with grilled pineapple and roasted tomatillo salsa wrapped in a corn tortilla, and costilla, smoked BBQ short ribs, pickled radish, topped with red onions and roasted jitomates salsa. Other items on the menu include Pollo Asado, Flautas, and Pastor Cargado to name a few, all of which are prepared using only the best and freshest of ingredients.

“Maiz was founded on the principle of creativity and commitment to excellence, and the feedback we have seen so far is immensely overwhelming, and very promising,” Al Assam concluded.
