El Planta

In March 2020 we broke the news that the team behind popular plant-based Mexican pop-up El Planta was in the process of opening a bricks-and-mortar eatery in South Brisbane. While the pandemic pushed the opening date back a bit further than anticipated, locals were able to get a taste of El Planta’s phenomenal fare when it launched a streamlined takeaway service El Planta At Home in late April. The menu featured ready-to-make taco kits (boasting fillings like tacos de al pastor and roasted-cauliflower), potato and mushroom ‘beef’ stew, roasted spiced-pumpkin wedges with pepitas and ancho mole, and DIY nacho kits (featuring tortilla chips, queso sauce, frijoles, guacamole, pico de gallo, smoked paprika, radish and coriander). Now El Planta has opened for dine-in service, which means the menu has grown to include more taco fillings and a drinks selection – think margaritas, tomatillo sours, beers, wines and seasonal non-alcoholic beverages.
