Mamasita, another of Melbourne’s finest Mexican restaurants was ahead of the game when it brought a little taste of Mexico to the city. Leading the charge in showcasing fresh Mexican flavours, the food is modern, creative and not slathered in the cheeses and sauces that previously gave the cuisine a bad wrap. The food philosophy is inventive and eco-aware whilst still remaining true to the traditional and authentic methods of Mexican cuisine. Alcoholic beverages are predominantly sourced from Mexico, Central America, South America and Spain, with Tequila a key focus.
In Victoria’s south west, the Great Ocean Road is also following suit, with the opening of Mexican haunt, El Poco Burrito. Located in Barwon Heads in the Bellarine, El Poco Burrito’s Fish Taco has already gained cult status with the Breakfast Tacos hot on its heels.
