Local Mexican food specialist El Camino will be serving their signature tacos and tequila. The team has created a bespoke menu for The Cotton Factory to include beer-braised ox cheek tacos with chipotle aioli, red pickled chilli and crispy shallots; massa fried chicken tacos with red salsa and habanero aioli; plus vegetarian options including the chipotle cauliflower taco with radish, red chilli and sweet potato puree.

As well as tacos there will be a selection of big plates from the grill, including the rib-eye steak, pork chop or grilled sea bream all cooked on the charcoal grill with charred greens, ancho chilli butter and salsa verde.

El Camino’s new food menu caters for both vegetarians and vegans

The menu has been designed to share with sides including crunchy tortilla chips with fresh salsa and guacamole, corn croquettas with cheese and spring onion, and queso fundido (like Mexican fondue!), plus El Camino’s hugely popular quesadillas with either beer braised ox cheek or sweet potato.

El Camino’s new food menu caters for both vegetarians and vegans, and will all served with quality tequila cocktails plus a host of Mexican beers.
