Such is the sheer number of burrito bars and taco vendors clogging up London’s streets, that it’s perhaps inevitable things would turn violent. Fortunately the only shots fired during the Taco Wars are likely to be of tequila.
Organised by the @Tweat_Up Twitter account, which is run by Jonathan Downey, whose Rushmore group owns Milk & Honey, Giant Robot and others, Taco Wars will see some of London’s finest taco purveyors cooking their best at Merchant Yard, in Hackney, with punters encouraged to taste then place a vote on which they like best.
Details of who is taking place are scant at present, but hopefully it’ll include Breddo’s (pictured above), a staple of Netil Market in London Fields and makers of one of the finest tacos we’ve tasted outside of Mexico. We’re also expecting Buen Provecho, Luardos and Wahaca to fetch up.
Tickets go on sale at midday, and cost £35, which includes a belt-troubling 10 tacos and two drinks. Follow @Tweat_Up for more; they’ll be tweeting the link to buy tickets at midday today (11 April). Only 250 are available, so you’ll need to be quick on the draw.
