Tacos Muchachos Pop-Up
This Mexican street food pop-up is bringing some joy to a locked down Surry Hills with quesabirria tacos, packed-full burritos and boozy agua fresca.
Starting a restaurant is a daunting task at the best of times, but even more so during a pandemic. Luckily for the residents of Surry Hills, Daniel Hanssen took the plunge and quit his corporate job in order to share his love of Mexican food with the masses. In partnership with a Mexican chef, Hanssen has started a taco pop-up called Tacos Muchachos on Crown Street and hopes to see it evolve from here.
Opened in early June and serving inner city dwellers from 6pm Thursday–Saturday, the Mexican food pop-up offers up housemade tortillas topped with taqueria guacamole, onion, coriander and your choice of chicken, beef or cauliflower. On the specials menu you'll find burritos, nachos and Tacos Muchachos signature quesabirria tacos. Completing the menu is margaritas, beer and boozy agua fresca. Weekly surprises will pop up throughout the run of the pop-up restaurant, like beer marinated steak, cheese and guac tortas.
Be quick though, the pop-up was originally only scheduled to run until the end of June but has been extended until the end of August due to the positive response from the Surry Hills community.
