Revolución de Cuba, a subset of Revolution Bars Group, has pledged to give away 1,800 free tacos as part of a national treasure hunt celebrating the launch of its new food menu.

The Cuban-themed bar brand has hidden a total of 900 taco tokens across UK towns and cities where it has a venue. Each token entitles its discoverer to one free taco dish, priced at around £6 on the menu.

There’s a range of fillings on offer including ginger beer chicken with pineapple salsa, pulled beef with tomato salsa and mojo pulled pork with pineapple salsa. There is also a vegan jackfruit chilli choice, with each dish including two tacos.

The tokens are made from seeded paper meaning, if not discovered, they will bio-degrade and grow into wildflowers.

Rob Pitcher, Revolution Bars Group chief executive, said: “We’re really proud of our incredible food offering at Revolución de Cuba and wanted to celebrate all the hard work that’s gone into our new menu and taco recipe.

"By creating a nationwide treasure hunt, giving away 1,800 tacos free to lucky consumers, we’re able to spread the word about the delicious dishes we offer our guests as well as share just a little of the fun we’re famous for all around the country.”

New menu

Tacos are a feature of Revolución de Cuba’s new food menu. Other dishes on the menu are Cuban fish and chips, as well as tapas options like albondigas, anchovies and bruschetta. Desserts like a churros and banana pancake stack are also on offer.

In July, Revolution Bars Group announced its trading and properly investment update​ for the year ended 2 July 2022 (FY22).

Results were in line with the company’s expectations. Full year like-for-like (lfl) sales of 1.3% had been delivered in its 56 English bars after 19 July 2021 when restrictions were fully lifted in England.

Trading results

Revolution Bars saw this as a strong result given the disruption caused by the Omicron variant and subsequent plan B restrictions in place across the Christmas trading period.

Revolution Bars Group chief executive Rob Pitcher said the company was in great shape. He continued: “The business is well positioned with a net cash position to fund our new site and refurbishment programme.

“It has been exciting to see the positive results of our refurbishment and expansion strategy this year and to see our young guests, who place real importance on socialising, continue to enjoy themselves in our bars.”
