If you have tried Los Santos' Latin-Mexican Street Food you have probably wondered what it is that makes their food taste so incredible, although the secret ingredient may not be what you guessed!
The heart and soul of this sensational enterprise is our awe-inspiring and beloved Ana. Born and raised in El Salvador, Central America, Ana’s heritage is a melting pot of remarkable cultural backgrounds. A descendant of the Indigenous Mayans, she has drawn inspiration from her Grandmother’s traditions which are the foundations for her menu; fresh and simple fare with seasonal ingredients. From farm to table Ana has cultivated the traditions of this universally adored cuisine and made it enjoyable for everyone by accommodating any food preference, allergy or intolerance. “We have people with all kinds of preferences; vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free, allergies, whatever it is we customise the food to suit whatever they need.”
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Ana’s passion for food developed through her education in health. Coming from a background in medicine, she is particularly interested in biofield therapy, which focuses on the circulation and patterns of energy that moves throughout the body. Studies have shown this can have a huge impact on the health of our bodies and minds. Ana applies this holistic approach to the preparation of the food, which she believes makes all the difference, “We infuse our food with positive vibration, channelling a positive frequency which I believe stabilises and enhances the nutrition”.
Taquitos with a side of good vibes, yes thank you!
THE LOS SANTOS JOURNEY
Los Santos is one of the original markets we had here at the Marketta seven years ago. Since then, the team have dabbled in catering, kitchen takeovers as well as their restaurant collaboration in Currumbin, ‘Los Santos on the Deck’. They have been incredibly successful in all their ventures but Ana feels that the Miami Marketta is her home and appreciates the lifestyle of being able to operate here. “Everyone collaborates, the culture is amazing, and the customers are priceless. I love being able to have conversations with everyone, we have such a loyal following, we are very grateful.”
ALL THE YUMMY THINGS!
Fresh, tangy, with an element of surprise the options at Los Santos are endless. With all the traditional favourites you can expect from a Latin-Mexican street vendor including tacos, burritos, nachos, quesadillas the list goes on! All their marinades and salsas are made completely from scratch, fresh every week and for all those spice lovers try the ‘Zero to Hero’ spice test, rating from 0 to 10, see how much heat you can handle!
You can find Los Santos here at the Miami Marketta every Friday and Saturday nights from 5pm!
In its humble beginnings, King Stingray was just a do-it-yourself challenge – a couple of mates stewing up hot tunes in an equally hot part of the Northern Territory bush.
Now, less than a year since they dropped their hooky debut single, Hey Wanhaka in October 2020, these five Yolŋu (Aboriginal) and balanda (non-Indus) lads from north-east Arnhem Land and Queensland have become one of Australia’s hottest new acts.
In August 2021, King Stingray took out the enviable title of #1 Most Played Australian Track on triple j, for their accidental lockdown anthem, Get Me Out.
It came off the back of an impassioned triple j Live at the Wireless set in May (watch it here: abc.net.au/triplej/live-at-the-wireless/king-stingray-live-at-the-wireless/13364098).
Mixing ancient Yolŋu manikay (songs) and biḻma (clapsticks) with hot electric guitars and searing lyrics, King Stingray have spent the past year dodging COVID-19 restrictions to wow crowds along the eastern states, with tour highlights including Dark Mofo in Hobart, Splendour In the Grass XR, and completely selling out their first ever tour in March/April 2021.
King Stingray has one foot planted in history, and one firmly in the future.
Frontman Yirriŋa Yunupiŋu and guitarist Roy Kellaway have direct bloodlines running from Aussie rock royalty Yothu Yindi – the ARIA-winning legends who gave voice to the push for Aboriginal recognition with timeless tracks like Treaty, Tribal Voice and One Blood.
Yirriŋa, whose name translates to ‘place of stingray’, is a young Gumatj clan songman from the seaside community of Yirrkala. He’s following in the footsteps of his pioneering uncle, Yothu Yindi founder Mandawuy Yunupiŋu, who passed away in 2013.
“Dr Yunupiŋu was a great man, a humble man, a knowledge man, and he’s a leader – sharing a message,” says Yirriŋa. “Now we’re here to build a bridge for our generation, for our future, for the kids, just to do the same things as he was doing, and he’s been through.”
From the wilds of northeast Arnhem Land, King Stingray are just getting started. Keep track of the boys as they get ready to drop some more of Australia’s best new music in 2021.

"I am so incredibly excited to play these shows in QLD with people that I absolutely adore. I'm a huge fan of Melaleuca, Rose Rogers and KARLOU, and I am already keen to watch them all smash it. I'm going to bring a lot of new material to these shows and have a bunch of fun visual aspects to feast your eyes on. The band and I are going to have so much fun and banter on stage, I can't wait for you all to be a part of it too. And as for the day after these shows, let us all be happily hungover together. Maccas on me! xx"
