A street food restaurant was left unable to open after running out of food within hours on its opening night. 

Former MasterChef contestant Hannah Gregory opened Tacor behind The Beerhouse in Tayfen Road, Bury St Edmunds, last Thursday.

She reached the quarter finals of the BBC cooking competition before being approached by the landlord to open a new food hub.

On social media, Ms Gregory announced the business was unable to open on the Friday after running out of food on opening night.

The chef said: "Due to an absolutely wild turn out last night that far surpassed all expectations we are unable to open tonight. 

"You literally ate us out of everything. Thank your for understanding and your overwhelming support on our first night."

Tacor was able to reopen again on Saturday with two special tacos on offer - lamb barbecoa and a vegan nopales tostada. 

As well as serving Mexican dishes on a regularly changing basis, the taqueria also has a range of merchandise available to purchase.
