Ricos Tacos x Rocker Bondi
Sydney's Taco King is doing weekly taco Tuesdays in North Bondi.
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.
So far, Ricos Tacos has popped up for two days at the Grifter Brewing Co, and set up a (slightly more permanent) shop in the car park of Gelato Messina's Rosebery HQ as well. Now, Wilson is heading over to Rocker in North Bondi for the eatery's next venture — and taking over the menu for a taco Tuesday collaboration.
From 4.30pm each Tuesday between November 24–December 15, Wilson will be serving up a bespoke range of dishes, turning Rocker into a once-a-week taqueria. You'll be able to tuck into kingfish ceviche, avocado, citrus, soy and sesame tostadas ($7), or opt for chicken chipotle and tomato tacos ($6). Among other options, there'll also be tempura mushroom tacos and Ensenada-style fish tacos, too. And, for dessert, you can expect churros topped with lemon zest, chamomile sugar and dulce de leche ($9).
Rocker will also be pouring frozen margaritas, Arquitecto tequila, Estrella beers and other cocktails, should you need something to wash your tacos down with.
Bookings aren't necessary, but they are recommended — and you'll have an hour-long slot to munch away.
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 North Bondi come Tuesday.
