El Camino launched their brand new pop up restaurant last night in Whitworth Locke’s Cotton Factory and it was certainly a sign of all the amazing things the Mexican pop up will be bringing to Manchester.
El Camino is Manchester’s newest Mexican-style restaurant on the scene, serving up tequila and tacos all day long into the night. Located in Whitworth Locke’s incredible in-house restaurant The Cotton Factory, El Camino couldn’t be in a better spot to provide all the tasty food and good vibes in the city centre.
El Camino is the first of many food traders to be taking up residency at The Cotton Factory, which promises to be a completely unique, ever-evolving series of pop up dining experiences.
On the night of the launch, El Camino succeeded in bringing the spirit of Mexico’s cool and contented culture into the heart of Manchester. The soundtrack to the night was a perfect combination of traditional mariachi music and modern tunes with some good old Manchester bangers here and there. The Cotton Factory was transformed into a Mexican cantina, with giant trays filled with the best tacos circulating all through the night.
It’s clear that El Camino have spent a long time perfecting their tacos, because they are absolutely top-notch. Their main menu offers five different taco fillings, with veggie and gluten free options available too. Also available to sample were their classic tortilla chips served with salsa roja and guac.
El Camino had the drinks flowing all night, with enormous mason jars of margarita and Mexican beers in The Conservatory, a glass-roofed haven in the city centre that knits together Whitworth Locke’s three constituent buildings. It’s the best possible setting for a laid back lunch or a relaxed dinner and with summer around the corner, El Camino at The Conservatory is the place to be. The atrium is decorated with green plants and neon lights, giving off major chilled vibes, especially when the sunlight shines through.
So for some of the best tacos in town, head to El Camino. They’ll be whipping up a menu of quesadillas and other large plates like rib-eye steak and pork chops too. El Camino are even offering 50% off food if you book online until 7 July to celebrate the opening, how could anyone say no?
