Sydney's beloved taco-slinger Toby Wilson (Ghostboy Cantina, Bad Hombres) has recently returned from Mexico and he's brought a legit taste of the street food scene back with him. To showcase his new recipes, Wilson will take over the Mecca Alexandria kitchen with Las Taquerias de Mexico — offering a set menu of tacos and snacks over two sittings a night on March 16, 17, 23 and 24.
The eight-course taco degustation is based off of Wilson's food journey, with regional dishes from Mexico City, Guanajuato, Guadalajara, Oaxaca and Baja California represented on the menu — think lamb barbacoa tacos, zucchini flower and Oaxaca cheese quesadillas, ceviche tostadas and al pastor tacos. Other dishes will be announced on Wilson's Instagram in the lead up to the pop-up.
For drinks, they've imported tequila and mezcal from the distilleries Wilson visited on his trip, with Mexican beer, cocktails and natural wines also on offer. There will be an additional drinks pairing option available for $40, or patrons can buy drinks as they go.
As it's a fairly intimate venue, tickets for each sitting are limited. $60 for snacks — sans drinks — is definitely on the pricey side, but Wilson's tacos could certainly be worth it.
