3 Pop-Ups to Pencil in Your Food Calendar

Posted By on Wed, Jun 22, 2016 at 2:54 PM

What? You don't have a food calendar?

If you tire of fare offered at local eateries, or you're just looking for the next great bite, make sure to add these the list.
  • Facebook/Gastronautica
Gastronautica's Rick Cantu will host the second rendition of Lips Smack & Cheese inside J&O's Cantina (1014 S. Presa St., 210-990-4106) on Thursday, June 23 with the Come and Take It Mac ($8; smoked brisket and sliced pickled jalapeños over mac & cheese with a smoky barbecue sauce drizzle), the Japantastic ($7; nori and steamed edamame atop mac with kewpie and Sriracha drizzles), and El Mariachi ($9; chorizo, cumin, cilantro and cotija atop mac and cheese with a habanero salsa drizzle). 

  • Facebook/Rebel Pizza

On Sunday, June 26, Halston Connella returns to Park Social (224 E. Olmos Drive, 210-822-0100)with Rebel Pizza from 7 p.m. to midnight. Last December, Connella's portable wood-burning oven was stolen and later found with severe structural damage. The cook, who is also one of the lead chefs at Brigid in Southtown, maintained the pop-up through Valentine's Day. As Brigid business picked up, Connella was forced to give up the pie-making. Until now. The menu is still in the works but expect inventive pies and drool-worthy pasta dishes. 

  • Facebook/Mama Tierra

This July 6, you can get your fill of vegan fare at La Botanica (2911 N. St. Mary's St., 210-716-0702) at the hands of Mama Tierra, which will host a second pop-up in the eatery. Expect an all-vegan menu of "fajita and al pastor" tacos, "picadillo" and vegicoa along with a new carNO guisada taco from cook Ale Tierra. You can get a cruelty-free dinner from 4 p.m. to midnight. 

Finally, keep an eye out on Sandwichserious, which hosted its second pop-up at Attagirl this past Monday. Let's just say the sangwish artisans are aiming a lot bigger for the next one.
