Arturo Escalante

Arturo was born and grew up in Mexico. After finishing his Criminal Law degree in Mexico City, he decided to go travelling for a bit and then that bit became a lifestyle for many years to come. While travelling around the world for many years, Arturo had the chance to experience new food flavours, new cultures and he also came to appreciate his Mexican roots more. From that moment, back in 1998 when he started his travels, was his first direct contact in a real kitchen and from there it’s where he started the new venture.

After many years of hard work, Arturo decided to bring alive that dream he had of having his own place and to be able to put all of that experience together and into your his own place.

Arturo’s first place in London 2007, was born out of a lifelong dream to bring the authentic flavours of Mexico to London. After that he managed to open 4 more places with different concepts but always with Authentic Mexican Food.

In 2014 Arturo sold the companies to move to Sweden to settle down in Malmö with his wife and 2 little girls.

That’s where he met Rodrigo, in 2014. Sharing longs talks about the Mexican culture and that in Sweden there was not much of the real Mexican Food. Realizing the passion they both shared about Mexican food and culture they decided to open the first Authentic Mexican Restaurant in Malmö.

La Raza combines speed, the very best service and highest quality ingredients. Keeping it as close as possible to the real flavours just like in Mexico.
La Raza offer many of the classics from Mexico City like tacos al pastor, sopes, pambazos, taquitos dorados just to mention few.
The place has been and is very successful and Arturo and Rodrigo are also looking to expand the concept.

Rodrigo Donoso

Rodrigo was born in Chile and moved to Sweden in 1985, where he studied management Hotels and Tourism.
After his studies he decided to go travelling to Central and South America to discover a bit more of his roots.
He stayed in Mexico for many months and discovered that beautiful country with all the culture and culinary experience.
After his trip Rodrigo got really inspired of bringing the latin flavour to Sweden.

He has many years of experience in the industry and has been working in different well known places in Sweden and abroad, since 2002.

In 2013 Rodrigo opened a small venue to test his own latin american concept and it worked well. This is where Arturo and Rodrigo met and decided to take it to a different level and La Raza was born...

We love what we do, and this passion flows through each and every element of the La Raza experience. From the ingredients chosen for their very own blend of salsas, to the refreshing Aguas Frescas and Margaritas served as the perfect accompaniment to your Authentic Mexican Experience.

Arturo Escalante says:
‘Adding a modern twist to classic Mexican recipes has long been a passion of mine. It’s a dream come to true to start selling lot of our Mexican products in Sweden.
