Liv­er­pool’s Baltic tri­an­gle has been an arts/music des­ti­na­tion for sev­er­al years, with  food play­ing an impor­tant part: Camp & Fur­nace is well known for its food slams.

Upping the food game at the Baltic Tri­an­gle is a brand new Cuban street food eatery called FINCA. Launched by the team behind the uncon­ven­tion­al pop-up restau­rant, Secret Din­ers Club; FINCA will begin a 7‑month res­i­den­cy at the Botan­i­cal Gin Gar­den, which will start dur­ing the Inde­pen­dent Liv­er­pool Food Fes­ti­val on 25 March.

The menu, although con­tin­u­ous­ly chang­ing, will main­ly revolve around Cubanos, a tra­di­tion­al hearty Cuban sand­wich, and slow cooked mar­i­nat­ed meats that will be cooked on open-bar­rel bar­be­cues on site.

Daniel Heffy, chef and co-founder of FINCA, says: “FINCA has been a long time com­ing. We’ve all vis­it­ed Cuba numer­ous times over the years and want­ed to serve up the country’s deli­cious street eats over here for some time. The Baltic Tri­an­gle, and the Botan­i­cal Gin Gar­den in par­tic­u­lar, is the per­fect loca­tion for us to launch our first con­ces­sion so we jumped at the chance to get involved. We can’t wait to get start­ed, you’ll find us at the Gar­den enjoy­ing a Cubano and a beer in the sun this summer.”
