El Loco at the House
One pop-up that's perfectly placed for summer.
There's something about having the sting of chipotle on your lips and the fun of a tortilla packet in your hands. In Sydney we'll slam down Mexican food at any time of year, but in summer, we're positively loco for it. So it's a good thing that Dan Hong is opening an outpost of Surry Hills' popular-at-all-hours El Loco waterside at the foot of the Sydney Opera House throughout January.
The pop-up cantina will serve a concise $6-10 menu of made-to-order tacos as well as their signature hot dogs, now in both adult and kid sizes perfect for a snack. It's the ideal side order to a night of entertainment during Summer at the House (which you might enjoy last minute for just $25) or just a few hours spent soaking up one of the city's finest views and staring down Circular Quay's brazen seagulls.
Wander up to the Upper Podium of the House to check out the Cove cocktail bar, a nod to the Great Gatsby that's also open from January 4-28.
