Meet The Newtown Eatery Giving Away FREE Cheese-Loaded French Tacos

Eat, Restaurants, Sydney / 26 February 2020

The newest French food craze, French tacos, has landed in Sydney with the launch of Newtown’s French Tacos Factory.

Don’t let the name of this dish deceive you, there’s not a touch of Mexican influence in French tacos. In fact, the origin of the name itself is a bit of a mystery. But labels aside, there’s plenty of reason to get on board the new French fast-food trend that’s just landed in Sydney.

For those who’ve never heard of this decadent dish, French tacos are set to be the hottest new foodie craze to land in Oz. It’s part grilled cheese-panini, part kebab and all parts delicious. The dish is made with a wheat-flour tortilla, loaded with premium French cheese, chips, cheese sauce and your choice of protein. Roll it all up, grill in a sandwich press and serve once the cheese turn oh-so-gooey.

The best part of this dish? You get to pick and choose your fillings, with everything from grilled beef mince to fried chicken on the menu. Plus, you can amp up with your experience with extras like raclette, brie, pepperoni, pickles and goat’s cheese. Plus, all of the French Tacos Factory’s dishes are made with premium cheeses including Auvergne Raclette, Poitou Charentes goat’s cheese and Brie from the Vosges.

Whether you’re looking for a late-night feed or a meal to cure soothe your hangover, Newtown’s new grab-and-go French Taco Factory is the place to visit. Launched by Hakim, Sofiane, Julien and Hervé (owners of the wildly popular French eatery FC Tacos), the outpost is inspired by the fast-food craze that launched in Lyon before taking over the streets of Paris, Brussels, Casablanca and beyond. In fact, one of the most popular French taco franchises boasts over 300 stores across the country.

Want to try a French taco for FREE? On March 14th, the French Tacos Factory will be celebrating their launch by giving away free tacos from midday until 11pm, or until they run out of cheese (limit of 1 taco per person).
