Breddos and Belzan founders unite for Liverpool taqueria

The founders of Liverpool restaurants Belzan and Volpi, and the team behind London's Breddos Tacos will launch a new Mexican taqueria at Royal Albert Dock Liverpool as a joint venture in November 2019.

Madre, a 100 cover restaurant, will open at the Grade I-listed site on the Atlantic Pavillion, offering seating across two floors as well as a dedicated bar area and a large outside courtyard.

Meaning mother in Spanish, Madre will draw on the food culture of Mexico City, and will serve lunch through to dinner as well as a late night snack selection at the weekends, when the bar will remain open until late.

Lunch dishes will include tacos such as iberico pork al pastor, Jalisco style shrimp and beef short rib birria with black pudding mole, while the evening menu will also feature larger sharing dishes including a half a pig's head chicharron, butterflied sea-bass divorcioados and hogget barbacoa.

Speaking about the new restaurant co-founder, Nud Dudhia of Breddos said, "After years of trading in London we're super excited to collaborate with some Liverpool legends and create something entirely new and exciting for the city.

Madre will be a place you can stop in for a bite, or stay all night listening to DJs, eating small plates and drinking cocktails with friends.

Co-founder Sam Grainger of Belzan added: "When we first set out on this journey we knew we needed a special space, we never thought somewhere as prestigious as the Royal Albert Dock would be possible.

"It's an unbelievable site with boat loads of character and we hope to deliver a food and drink offering to match. We're so excited to welcome everyone from far and wide to Madre to drink, eat, party, dance on the tables and more than anything, feel like they've been welcomed into their family home."
