Tacu Tacu Latin Burger Bonanza – Hackney Downs


After their time roaming the mean streets of Brick Lane this is one of the first in a series of pop-ups Tacu Tacu have planned throughout London over the coming months.

This time they will be recreating their own little piece of Latin America, complete with sultry music, at their ace venue by Hackney Downs.

The menu is based around a novel Latin-inspired 3-course double burger bonanza which brings together various gastronomic elements from various parts of the region with an unexpected twist……a shrimp burger??!! A mojito dessert burger??!! The world has gone mad I tell you! London has never seen the likes of this before.

The chaps will be recommending some boozy pairings or you can go freestyle from the russet’s extensive range of craft beers and cocktails of course.

Loosen your belts and get ready for a culinary ride of a lifetime!


What’s in store I hear you ask? Well……….

tacutacu1MEXICAN SHRIMP BURGER: Baja California style seafood patty, mature cheddar, lettuce, roasted red pepper and our signature homemade creamy avocado and garlic mayo, or

LLAPINGACHO BURGER (v): delicately seasoned Ecuadorian sweet potato cake stuffed with cheese, topped off with crisp fresh red onions and coriander and peanut sauce.

Both with some handcut fries and Chimichurri sauce, lush!

Plus there’s always room for some pud!

MOJITO DESSERT BURGER: salted dulce de leche, spiced banana patty, sliced fresh strawberries, mojito cream cheesecake (made with real Bacardi®) and a plump black grape for good health

Food doesn’t get much better than this folks!
