A new Mexican hotspot is due to open in Douglas this week, following a soft launch that saw them treat 30 First Responders to some free food.
Inspired by the taquerias of the Mexican Mission District in San Francisco, an area where traditional Mexican cuisine meets fresh Californian food culture, Zócalo is opening on January 18th on Church Street. The eatery will be where the Asian restaurant Kubo once was.
This is the branch’s first Irish restaurant, with Zócalo having already successfully spread its Mexican magic across Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, and recently, Soho, London.
They opened their doors last weekend to First Responders like the Gardaí, fire and ambulance personnel, offering free food to the first 30 customers to come in with their ID.

The new restaurant has an entire menu suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Choose your protein — pulled jackfruit or veggie strips — and decide if you want your dish vegan as they’ll swap out dairy-based sauces with plant-based goodness. We love the sound of the El Tajin Spicy Quesadilla, which comes with cheese, raw slaw, corn salsa, black beans, jalapenos, salsa verde, and chipotle cream.
For meat lovers, tacos, burritos, burgers, nachos, and quesadillas can also have proteins like chipotle marinated chicken, carnitas pulled pork, and barbacoa beef.
Currently, Zócalo’s famed margaritas aren’t on the menu in Cork, but there are lots of wine, beer and soft drink options available.
