Job Overview

Republic of Tacos
Available exclusively at Ossington Canteen, Republic of Tacos will be one of the feature brands at Ossington Canteen. What started as a humble family tradition for the owner as a child in Dallas, developed into obsession during time spent in Austin and the surrounding area, seeing out tacos and smoked meats. Texas style breakfast tacos are nearly exclusively served on flour tortillas, which we make in-house with no preservatives on equipment we shipped in from San Antonio. The dish is meant to be easy to, affordable, delicious, and not overly complicated. A breakfast taco is never called a burrito - breakfast tacos are smaller and more portable, and why not make it two?
Ossington Canteen
Ossington Canteen is a new, independent neighbourhood food spot, bringing hot grab‘n’go foods, a café & bar and pre-packaged items to the community. We offer an array of foods created by local chefs under one roof, such as Texas-style breakfast tacos by Republic of Tacos, British fare by Pies by Squires, indulgent sweets by Gertie’s and more! Take it to-go or to enjoy in the Canteen. Our bar will serve a selection of beers, wines and cocktails, as well as premium coffee and espresso beverages.
