Hoping to blur the lines between situational crime prevention and street food when his Sydney food truck Al Carbón - Taquería Móvil goes live in a few weeks, Ex cop turned Mexican Taquería Master: Attila Yilmaz has teamed up with Olivia Andrews from Firetruck BBQ for this collaborative Pop-Up.
Both Attila and Olivia know their stuff, having travelled respectively through North Mexico and across the American 'BBQ-Belt' perfecting their craft and learning from the best.
The Result: Amazing authentic street food, culture and flavours right here in Sydney.
Having sampled offerings from both, I can attest that this collaboration will be absolutely D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S!!!!! Think juicy melt-in mouth slow cooked pulled pork and succulent meats wrapped in fresh tortillas laden with all the trimmings. And don't get me started about the amazing Raspados - a signature shaved ice dessert that is sweet, fruity and soft as snow. Attila has even imported a specialised machine to make them.

Mexican Botanas - Bar Snacks and a glass of Sangria or Cerveza
Cost: $67 per head.
Where: La Lupita - 325 Canterbury Rd, Canterbury in Sydney's Inner West.
