Taco King at The George Hotel may be no more, with the Waterloo pub recently reopening under the direction of new operators, but the Taco King himself Toby Wilson is pressing on with a new tortilla venture: Ricos Tacos. The Taco King is dead, long live the Taco King.

Following a two-day pop-up at the Grifter Brewing Co, the taco truck is setting up (slightly more permanent) shop in the car park of Gelato Messina's Rosebery HQ from Thursday, September 10.

It'll be open from 5pm Thursday and 12pm Friday–Sunday until sold out, with three different $6 tacos on the menu: chorizo al pastor, Jalisco-style braised beef and fried cauliflower with tahini. Also on the lineup: corn chips and salsa ($8), black beans and rice ($6), cashew and malt horchata ($6.50) and iced hibiscus ($5).

If you didn't try Wilson's tacos at The George, you may've encountered them at the various guises of Ghostboy Cantina (including at Dixon House and inside Tio's Cerveceria). Missed those, too? We suggest you make a beeline to Rosebery come Thursday.

There's no word yet on exactly how long Wilson will be pressing tortillas in the Rosebery car park, but Messina says it'll be "ongoing" while its regular Messina Eats events are put on hold during COVID-19.
