Holy Phuc! When that’s the name of a taco on your menu, you better have the sauce to back it up. We like our beer battered fish tacos drowning in a sea of special sauce, holy phuc indeed…


Ok so everyone loves French fries, even people gluten free people love French fries. But any true fry fan knows it’s not so much the fries themselves that make them so great. It’s what we dip them in!! The perfect vehicle for any sauce you fancy, we recommend the truffle.
