Born in Mexico, Miguel Espinosa came to New York in his youth, began working in the restaurant industry ever since. Miguel migrated to Tampa, Florida in his 30’s, gained his innovative culinary experience from Chef Eric Mawby. Born in the United Kingdom and raised in Japan, Chef Eric taught Miguel that in Japanese culture, sushi is considered a true art form, as its presentation is just as important as how it tastes. Working alongside Eric, has inspired Miguel to become a chef.
Although Miguel loves experimenting with different flavors of food, he had a lot of fun creating flavors that are authentic to him. Miguel opened Jalapeños Mexican Grill restaurant in Tampa in 2011. Later on in 2016, he moved to Yellow Springs, Ohio with his family. Shortly after, he volunteered his time to do a pop up for street fair and donated all proceeds to Yellow Springs schools. He then opened Miguel’s tacos, a Mexican themed food truck full time to dedicate himself to feeding and sharing his delicious food with the whole community and always with the people of the community in mind. Over the past few years, he has sponsored 2 community meals where he invited anyone and everyone to come eat for free during these trying times. In summer 2020, he was graciously invited to be a part of Dave Chappelle’s summer camp and from then on he continued to grow, opening a brick and mortar in Trail Town Brewing in the fall of 2020.
After 6 years of multiplying loyal advocates with his impeccable Mexican food in the Yellow Springs area, he is ready to embark on a new adventure with Chef Eric Mawby. Between the two of them, they came up with flavors that can really tell a story. From sushi burrito, to açaí bowl, to smoothie, to Taiwanese boba tea, to traditional Hawaiian poké bowl, that is unique to the American palate. Miguel Espinosa and Chef Eric Mawby welcome you to Miguel’s Poké Island.
