A new pop-up restaurant will arrive in Belfast in September and it promises to recreate the authentic flavours of Mexico.

La Taquería, which translates as taco shop, will open in Mourne Seafood’s Oyster Bar on Castle Street on Culture Night (September 16).

It will be run by Adam Lynas from Bangor along with his Mexican girlfriend Elizabeth Vignolle. The pair met when Adam was living in Canada and it led to several trips to Mexico during which time Adam tried his first authentic taco which he described as “an epiphany”.

The move will see Adam who has worked in Roscoff and Shu go into partnership with Andy Rea and Stevie Haller from Mourne Seafood and Home.


“I find that Mexican food over here always has to be given a twist, it’s not authentic Mexican food which is amazing on its own,” Adam told Belfast Live.

“I came from a high end dining background, I worked in Roscoff and I spent four years in Shu, but I love stuff that is fresh and tasty, I love good honest tasty food.”

And they’ll be hitting the spot with some authentic Mexican cocktails too.

The restaurant will also have its own drinks menu dedicated to the most Mexican of cocktails – The Margarita.

Roll on Culture Night!
