Good things come to those who wait. Better things (including tacos) come to those who get on with it, which is why the JQ's Eight Foot Grocer is putting his plans for a tacqueria into warp speed eleven, while his pizza-oven related planning application awaits the big tick. Teaming up with girlfriend, Maria del Papia Lopez and a frankly obscene number of our favourite faces, Pop-up Taco Shop will be filled with super secret recipes from Maria's army of Mexican aunts, uncles and Guadalajara-based relatives, with tacos at £2 a go. Turning to the bar, a house Margarita has been developed by Rob Wood of 40 St Pauls, whilst newbie, Creamed Pops, is providing their small-batch Mexican ices. And Pip's Hot Sauce? Well, she's on sauce. There'll be a Day of the Dead-light kinda feel, with the traditional calaveras murals painted in bold colours, and a piñata collection with an almighty plus — gift your homemade piñata to the team, and they'll gift you food in return. Open July 21, Thursdays to Sundays next to 8FG. Más
