We've long lamented the lack of good (freshly-made) tacos in Dublin, so were pretty excited to hear that there's a taco battle taking place at Eatyard's Jam Park in Swords this weekend. Six taco makers from La Cocina Cuevas, Eatery Park, Fuppin Delish, The Taco Truck, Tacos Don Ron (from Waterford) and Blasta Street Kitchen (from Monaghan) will compete for the title of best taco, and attendees will vote for their favourite.
Apart from taco judging, there's also going to be spicy taco-eating contests, sombrero throwing, piñata competitions, limbo and a Mexican bean race (no idea). DJ Marcus O’Laoire has been drafted in as MC, and Bodytonic's DJs will take over later on.
Tickets for Eatyard's Taco Battle are €44.54 and include one taco from each vendor, and a drink token for a glass of wine, pint of beer or a spirit and mixer. Children under 12 go free and you can pay as you go for their food. It starts at 16:00 and you can get tickets here.
