Sydney loves a good collaboration. Whether it's the combination of two nostalgic chocolates, a new Enmore Road bar from a heap of hospo favourites or one-off culinary combos, it's always a delight to see two of our faves come together to make something new.

Ricos Tacos and its owner Toby Wilson seems to agree, with the beloved Chippendale joint announcing a new series of collabs with three of this city's most exciting venues. Taking place every two weeks across three Tuesdays in autumn, Ricos Mates will roll out one-off menus, with a new Sydney favourite in the kitchen for each iteration.

Things will kick off with a takeover from Porcine on March 28, so expect plenty of perfectly cooked pork to be injected into the Ricos menu. From there, Central Station's brand new pizzeria Pizza Oltra will be on the tools, bringing its New York-style flair over to Meagher Street on April 4. Finally, Marrickville warehouse restaurant Baba's Place will be arriving with its cult-following celebration of southwest Sydney cuisine on April 18.

Ricos recently updated its opening hours, adding a dinner menu featuring crab tostadas and lemon myrtle margaritas to its already popular offerings. These collaborations take full advantage of the extended closing time.

Each collab night kicks off at 5.30pm. You might be tempted to try and reserve your spot so you can make sure you get your hands on a Porcine or Baba's Place taco, but Ricos doesn't take bookings, so you'll just have to get down early.
