UPDATE: El Planta’s official opening has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Adrienne and Rick have launched El Planta At Home – a takeaway concept allowing folks to enjoy their meatless Mexican while enacting social distancing. Read all about it here.

After a year spent building up a cult following behind their selection of plant-based tacos, Adrienne Jory and Rick Gibson are moving on from their beloved Wandering Cooks pop-up. Before you freak out, allow us to follow up by saying they’re only moving around the corner. That’s right – El Planta is putting roots down! The couple have snagged a permanent spot on Hope Street, which will be converted into a homey bar and eatery hawking Adrienne and Rick’s meat-free Mexican eats plus some new goodies. The space – formerly home to fish and chipper Ol’ School – will be given a cosmetic overhaul, made to feel like you were stepping into your friend’s home – warm, welcoming, comfortable. As for the fare, El Planta’s famed range of plant-based tacos will take centre stage. The core range, which includes the likes of pork, chicken, beef and fish (or rather, their meatless counterparts), will be expanded with a couple of newcomers, while share-style mains, sides and desserts will also feature. Much like their Wandering Cooks pop-up, Rick and Adrienne are keen to maintain their DIY house-made ethos, this goes to the drink selection too. All non-alcoholic drinks will be made in house from seasonal ingredients, with the option to booze them up if desired (think Mexican espresso martinis made using rice and coconut-milk horchata), while all spirits will be selected based on their ability to be enjoyed straight or on the rocks. Wandering Cooks’s wine curator Nick Turner will be curating a selection of natural and vegan-friendly wines, as well as Mexican beers and cocktails.
