Situated in Sydney’s bohemian suburb, Glebe, this hot Mexican joint came recommended:
The food was scrumptious.
If you do visit may I recommend ordering the Chingachunga (spelling?) or fajitas. The fajitas though aren’t big man size portions, so all those with BIG appetites be warned.
Prices are around $22 – $30
BYO or have a jug of Sangria for $15+ (they make white wine Sangria as well!)
The staff were attentive, polite, excellent. The girls were also wearing these frumpy dresses… is this because its hot in there? Who knows why all their female staff should wear these hideous uniforms, but that’s irrelevant. I suppose. Majorly disappointing note – the food took an hour to arrive after ordering.
Lets talk about decor, ambiance…
Basic and comfortable – there were crosses hanging at every available space, but then again Mexico is a religious country so that kind of makes sense and kind-of creeped me out. There’s a bookcase of spicy sauces, better known as the Wall of Pain that you must try at your peril, I suppose its one way to shake up an evening. If you care to accept the challenge.
5 / 10
Its a little expensive for the portion sizes and the food took a decade to arrive. The place was full, so they must be doing something right. Also note: you can’t split the bill, so make sure someone can pay the full blow and pay them back.
