After a roaring four week stint in February, the crew at El Camino are back for good, permanently taking over the old Get Chucked site on Flixton Road for what will no doubt be another blinding success.
The return of El Camino boasts some exciting new additions to the menu including shrimp tacos with avo hot sauce and pico de gallo; carne asada tacos (marinated hanger steak) with green salsa, white onion, coriander & lime and sweet potato veggie tacos with corn nuts, salsa and spring onion.
Eager guests can look forward to their staple dishes such as baja fish tacos with shredded cabbage, red onion & avo hot sauce, short rib quesadillas with chillies, loads of cheese and red onion; and masa fried chicken torta with habanero aioli, on toasted ciabatta. Diners are invited to add on El Camino’s homemade hot sauces for an extra spicy time.
We visited El Camino and were treated to a variety of taste bud tingling Mexican treats. To start some crispy salty tortilla chips with salsa and ultra-fresh guacamole. Delicious.
The following dishes raised the bar even further. A beer-braised ox cheek taco with chipotle aioli and pickled red chilli. The chilli hit with an initial wave of heat but did not linger or overpower the palate. The taco was balanced to perfection.
A tasty sweet potato quesadilla with cheese and red chilli really worked. The sweet potato combined with the red chilli was very interesting.
Finally the skewered shrimp with pineapple habanero and green rice. Everything about this dish was outstanding. The shrimps were cooked perfectly and full of flavour and the pineapple habanero was fresh. The rice was also packed with flavour and really brought the dish together.
After their pop-up at a residency restaurant in the city centre, El Camino are returning to their hometown in Urmston permanently with even more of the finest Mexican food Manchester has to offer, with a menu inspired by fresh, seasonal produce. The variety of tacos, burritos and quesadillas will suit the taste buds of all diners, from the loyal veggies to the die-hard meat-eaters. El Camino’s well-stocked bar serves to complement the authentic Mexican flavours on the menu. Who can resist a frozen margarita followed by tequila shot…. or three?
Urmston’s recent and fast-developing food & drink scene welcomes El Camino back with open arms. With the regeneration or Urmston Market and more independent sites opening weekly, the space at Get Chucked is a favourite for the El Camino team.
With El Camino back on Urmston’s foodie map once again diners can expect more delicious flavours, more wild tequila nights and more brilliant vibes.
