The founders of renowned Liverpool restaurants, Belzan and Volpi, and London’s popular Breddos Tacos, are pleased to announce the opening of a new collaborative Mexican taqueria, MADRE, launching at Royal Albert Dock Liverpool in November 2019.

The 100 cover restaurant, opening at the Grade 1 listed site on the Atlantic Pavillion, will offer seating over two floors, a dedicated bar area, and a large outside courtyard.

MADRE, meaning mother in Spanish, is a taqueria inspired by the food culture of Mexico City, where the founders of Breddos have visited countless times over the last 15 years. The Breddos and Belzan partnership was born after a sell-out pop-up in Liverpool during 2018, after Breddos’ first visit to Liverpool, they fell in love with the city and its people and knew something brilliant could come out of this partnership, and MADRE was born.

MADRE will serve lunch through to dinner and offer a late night snack selection at the weekends, when the bar will remain open until late. Lunch will feature a varied selection of tacos such as iberico pork al pastor, Jalisco style shrimp and beef short rib birria with black pudding mole.

The evening menu will also feature larger sharing dishes to be eaten family style, such as half a pig’s head chicharron, butterflied sea-bass divorcioados and hogget barbacoa. The menu has been designed to be accessible, fun and big on flavour, with all produce sourced as locally and sustainably as possible.

The drinks list is designed by the award-winning team behind Belzan and Volpi, comprising a stellar list of margaritas, craft beers, and natural wines - to wash down tacos late into the evening, accompanied by an eclectic soundtrack at the weekends.

MADRE will also have their own stall at the Royal Albert Dock’s new food and drink festival, FEAST, taking place from 7-8th September. The free, family-friendly event will showcase the impressive food and drink line-up at the Dock, with MADRE offering a Taco Truck and cocktail making sessions at their stall along with DJs,
