Glow-in-the-Dark Tacos from Lostacos

Yes, you heard that right, tacos that glow in the dark – just in time for Halloween. Lostacos will host a Day of the Dead pop up like no other, collaborating with Doodle Bar and Pensador Mezcal to give guests an immersive experience that also features film and music.

If you didn’t know, Lostacos is the new venture from Quest for Bold Flavour who have been ceaseless in their search for definitive cuisines with which to tantalise the tastebuds of London. It is their hope that the humble taco will soon outstrip the pizza slice as London’s go-to fast food. Incorporating the vibrancy of Mexico’s best street food into the environs of Maltby Street Market, a truly unusual experience awaits with a fiery Paloma to drink, glow-in-the-dark tacos, the cult film Juan of the Dead and music from Canadians Whitebrow, hailed as ‘mesmerising and darkly curious’.

The food will be a twist on the food made famous by the legendary El Pastor: marinated spiced slow-roasted grilled pork, salsa verde, fresh coriander, house-soured cream, which will be accompanied by fragrant calamari tacos. The tacos will be hand-made on the premises, chock full of luminous yet edible ingredients…

Lostacos will be held on Sundays between 2pm and 5pm on October and October 29th at Doodle Bar in Bermondsey. Get tickets here.
