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.
As mentioned in an earlier post there’s been a few places that have opened up recently at Canley Heights near Holy Basil and well, being a local I can’t help but want to give the new places a go. Whilst waiting for the boy to finish a long day at work, we just wanted a local fix for dinner. We found parking right in front of La Grilla so thought why not since we’ve had this obsession with Korean food lately.
It always excites me when we have a free Saturday which means being able to venture to places to tick off our to go list. We call a few friends to eat and chill with us, also showing them what our city has to offer. With my liking of the Drink and Dine Group so far, I thought it would be a great opportunity to try another. We make our way to The Norfolk in Surry Hills, ready for a good pub feed.
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).
