Davey’s set to bring Mexicano branch to STACK Seaburn

Davey’s Breakfasts and Sandwiches is set to launch a new concept at STACK Seaburn.

Since Rob West and David Milburn opened Davey’s in a small shop in Sheriff Hill, Gateshead four years ago, the company has gone from strength to strength – launching two more shops in Low Fell and Sandyford, and expanding the menu to offer more sandwiches, burgers, burritos, and tacos.

After a year spent travelling to the US, researching recipes and refining menus, Rob and David are set to open Davey’s Mexicano at STACK Seaburn on Friday May 3 – in the unit formerly occupied by Chapos Tacos.

“We are confident STACK Seaburn is the perfect site for us,” said Rob. “It’s got the clientele and it’s undoubtedly a key destination for food lovers, so we think we’re going to be a really good fit.”

Rob and David, who both come from hospitality backgrounds, started their business in lockdown alongside their now executive head chef, Adam Brown, and senior stock operator Tyler Marshall. They now employ around 100 staff.

“The demand for what we do has been huge,” said Rob. “Even though our menu is really extensive, it has been increasingly clear that our taco range has really captured the public’s imagination.”

Along with an even wider variety of tacos, Davey’s Mexicano will sell a variety of loaded nachos and a new signature dish of Mexican ramen noodles.

“This is a dish that’s really taking off in the US,” said Rob, “and we believe we are the first people to bring it to the North East. Without giving the recipe away, the noodles are served in a spicy, Mexican gravy with slow-cooked birria beef – so it’s traditionally Mexican but with an Asian influence.”
