The Baltic Triangle’s Cuban eatery FINCA will fire up its new barbecue menu with a special fundraising launch.
To mark National BBQ Week (30 May – 5 June) the street food venue within the Liverpool district’s Botanical Garden will begin serving up new menu additions this Saturday (4 June) with a percentage of proceeds from the day being donated to Claire House Children’s Hospice.
‘Pollo assado’ mojo chicken thighs will join FINCA’s current offering of hearty Cuban sandwiches, crunchy plantain crisps and Cuban-style doughnuts; as will Moros Y Cristianos – rice and black beans with baby back ribs and a guava BBQ sauce.
Oli Smith, chef and co-founder of FINCA, says: “We can’t wait to stoke up the fire and introduce our BBQ menu to the city!
“We’re also thrilled to team up with Claire House Children’s Hospice – it’s a great cause and we aim to raise as much money as possible for the charity.”
Mark Pearson, events fundraising manager at Claire House Children’s Hospice, adds: “Claire House helps seriously and terminally ill children live life to the full. We help families smile again when life couldn’t get any tougher.
“We are the children’s hospice for Liverpool and Merseyside and have a dream to be there for every family that needs us, which makes fundraising events in the community so important.”
FINCA is currently two months into a seven-month residency at Botanical Garden on New Bird Street.
