Solita to open El Taquero tacos restaurant in Manchester

el taquero solitaNORTH West restaurant group Solita is set to open a Mexican-style taqueria in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

El Taquero will specialise in tacos and quesadillas from corn tortillas handmade using an imported tortilla press from Mexico City. The drinks menu will feature a large selection of tequila, as well as tequila-based cocktails and Mexican beers.

The ground floor and basement of former pilsner hall pop-up Bouncing Czech and Montpellier’s restaurant on Back Tuner Street is currently undergoing renovation.

Solita, which is named after its location ‘south of Little Italy’, currently operates US-style bar and grills in Manchester as well as in Didsbury, Prestwich and Preston, where it serves an extensive menu of ribs, wings, burgers and hot dogs.

“Tacos make a great lunch, snack or dinner and we are confident ours will be the best, serving a taco-starved Manchester  something it has never seen before,” said Simon Pogson co-owner of the Solita group and El Taquero. “We’re keen to show people how a real taco should be served.” @copy NewspaperTimes - All rights reserved
