Taco fans, today is your day...

Today, Friday 4 October, is National Taco Day and to celebrate one of Scotland’s newest Mexican restaurants is serving up £2 tacos all day.

MEZCAL, which opened on Glasgow’s Hope Street last month, is offering £2 tacos from midday until 1am.

The taqueria and cantina bar offers diners an authentic taste of Mexico and is inspired by the street food culture of Mexico City. Dishes include a varied selection of tacos alongside larger sharing dishes and cocktails.

Founder and restaurateur Kevin Campbell said: “In honour of our love for this great Mexican treat, we’ve decided to celebrate National Taco Day by offerings £2 Tacos all day to our customers.

“We invite you to indulge your cravings for tacos and come visit us on Friday in our new taqueria and bar on Hope Street”.

As well as contemporary Mexican food, the restaurant and bar serves up Tequila’s smoky sibling, Mezcal – the inspiration behind the eatery’s name – and boasts over 25 different types of the spirit behind the bar.

Located in a former insurance brokers office on Hope Street, the new concept comes from the teams behind Glasgow’s Halloumi, bibimbap and Rioja.

Restaurateurs Kevin Campbell and Toni Carbajosa have joined forces with Publican Ryan Bowman to bring this “authentic taste of Mexico’s party capital” to Glasgow City Centre.

The restaurant and bar is open until 1am and operate on a first-come, first serve basis – so no need for advance bookings.
