To kick start a long weekend we decide to treat ourselves to a mean dinner. For us, this means cheap, fulfilling, hearty and grubby. He’s been wanting to go to The Dip since my first visit nearly 18 months ago because I didn’t go with him – errrr oops? =P
A few short hours after landing in Melbourne we make our way to Mamasita for our first feed in this city. You could say I had an eating itinerary so watch this space for some of my Melbourne eats to come. We’ve always had a soft spot for Mexican so thought it’d be a great way to start our trip.
An unofficial Christmas lunch with some uni girlfriends brings us to Mexico. Sadly, not literally. I wish though. This new kid on the block is situated where the late District Dining used to be (still sad I didn’t get the chance to visit). Mexico first started in New Zealand (that sounds really wierd) with two places already established, and branched out offshore here in our Sydney Surry Hills streets.
Finally, part of the food revolution has hit us with some Sydney Food Trucks roaming the Sydney streets (only at council approved locations of course)! I do like to refer to them as kitchen on wheels which they are essentially. The first of which was to launch was Cantina Mobil, offering mexican treats and non alcoholic sangria (which I sadly didn’t get to try).
