Students have been saying “hola” to a new culinary experience at their Wallsend school.

Meals have been spiced up at Churchill College thanks to the Mexican-themed Tex Mexpress concept opening its doors.

Street food is becoming more and more popular today as they want new foods and flavours to eat on the move.

The chef at Churchill College uses fresh ingredients to prepare Mexican inspired healthy food. All dishes are hand made to order.

Students are able to choose from tortillas, burritos or crispy taco baskets, filled with their own choice of Mexican food and salad. The Tex Mexpress outlet at Churchill College has been re-designed with an outdoor canopied dining area. To celebrate the opening last week, staff dressed in Mexican costumes and students dined to Mariachi music. North Tyneside Council catering services team are constantly developing new catering concepts within schools to meet the high expectations of students. Barbara Patterson, catering services manager, said: “We work closely with students and know that we have to keep on trend with new food concepts. Street food is very popular and we believe that our new outlet at Churchill College will prove very popular.”
