La Carnita

Food and art are a match made in heaven when it comes to La Carnita.

This pop-up gourmet taco stand has earned quite the following, as it successfully combines mouth watering eats with a passion for art and design. How it works? Every session a new artist is asked to create their own rendition of La Carnita’s mascot “Meat Head”. Limited edition prints of the artwork are then sold as a package deal that includes 3 delicious gourmet tacos.

I feel lucky to be a part of the art side of things at tonight’s La Carnita’s session, where 200 of my Meat Head prints will be on the menu. As for tonight’s taco flavours…that’s still a secret. I guess there’s only one way to find out!

Thanks to Andrew Richmond, Steve Miller, Rob Pilichowski and the rest of the crew at One Method for warmly welcoming me into their space yesterday to sign prints.

La Carnita’s gourmet taco pop-up  takes place tonight at the Evergreen Brick Works from 6-11pm, as part of the Toronto Underground Market. Follow them on twitter to be in the know for their next pop-up event in the city @la_carnita

    I love this print. I’m going to have to go get some tacos if there are still some prints left.
