La Pilarica is a Mexican pop-up taking over nights at Loafing Cafe in Hackney

With Loafing Cafe now back up and running in Hackney, they're already launching their first post-lockdown pop-up. 

La Pilarica is a Mexican pop-up created by Federico Perez Diaz and Michael Kutziola, The pair originally met at Frankie’s Bar and Grill in Selfridges back in 2010 - have worked together since, both in restaurants and street food stalls - although this will be their first pop-up. 

Slow-cooked meats are at the heart of the menu - including pork belly and short rib beef cooked for 24 hours in La Pilarica spices (with vegan options available too). Federico Perez Diaz says "the idea of La Pilarica is to combine our working knowledge of street food with our understanding of the techniques of molecular cuisine to offer premium organic Mexican food at affordable prices."

Those meats can be ordered in burritos and Mexican salads and there's also a Mexican pulled pork burger in a brioche bun. Alongside that are quesadillas, tortilla chips, homemade Mexican salsa, guacamole and tacos along with Mexican fruit sodas.
