Beloved Mexican chef Rosa Cienfuegos is taking Sydneysiders on a journey through some of her favourite tacos across six weeks at her Redfern restaurant Itacate. Cienfuegos has pulled together a roster of six traditional taco flavours that she holds close to her heart, with one flavour set to be showcased every Tuesday over August and September.

Rosa's Taco Journeys will kick off with a special opening night on Tuesday, August 16. The taco flavour on offer this week will be al pastor, a juicy pork filling that will be served on double tortillas with chopped onion, coriander, pineapple, lime juice and spicy salsa. The first 50 people through the door that day will be given a free al pastor taco and a mariachi band will be on-site from 6pm to add to the festivities.

Across the other five Tuesdays, Mexican food enthusiasts will be treated to suadero, birria tacos, cochinita, tacos de barbacoa and tacos carnitas. Each flavour will also be paired with a different variety of Mexican sodas from event partner Jarritos.

Tacos will be available for $7 each or in taco boxes which include three tacos, a Jarritos soda and Mexican sweets for $20.
