A fast-paced homage to the streets of Central America, Mexico restaurants provide an authentic and fun-loving taste of Mexican culture.
The Ponsonby branch is as colourful as a day of the dead fiesta, with painted woodwork, flickering candles and vibrant wall murals, and the energy is equally eclectic, making it ideal for everything from a fun-filled date to catching up with pals.
The food here takes a seasonal approach to Mexican fare with flavours that are big, spicy and complex.
Menus change every three months, but generally include the likes of soft shell tacos, quesadillas, sharing snacks such as croquetas and mouth watering grilled meats. Classics such as ceviche and their legendary fried chicken are a must try, while prawn cutlets in turmeric rice batter are divine dunked into spicy chipotle cream.
Drinks keep the vibe loud and lively, with jugs of sangria and Frida's Margaritas, top shelf Tequila and a long list of Mexican beers. The melon and mint margarita is a refreshing twist on the classic.
For a dining experience with all the fun of a fiesta, look no further!
