I had lunch with a friendon a Friday before going overseas on a holiday.

I choose the Queso Flameado which was different and very good.

It was a molten spicy chorizo and cheesy dip served with corn chips and guacomole.

The place was very quiet for a Friday lunch.

The food was delicious and there is plenty of variety (although don’t expect to see the usual suspects of an ordinary Mexican restaurant on the menu!)
The drinks were very expensive but they were still delicious.
It’s very crowded and noisy but I guess that adds to the Mexican feel.
It can easily be made into an affordable group dinner (without drinks!)

This place was very random! We stumbled across it as it was rather busy and seemed to have a good vibe, we were right!
We stayed here for some cocktails on a Thursday night and some bites to eat.
The Guacamole was great! HUGE portion, loved it!

The staff were very friendly and table service was on point.

We didn't have any other food, but there were plenty of people in here enjoying themselves after eating, so im sure it would be great!

Nice spot, inside and outside seating.

I'll be back! I see you have happy hours!

This place is well located just across from the QV Building off Swanston Street and Lonsdale. It also has a nice feel and probably would have even more in the evenings.

We had the $22 luncheon special which is the elotes corn (normally $6.00), a pair of tacos ($15.00) and a drink. We chose a glass of white wine but I would go for a beer next time if offered.

I had read a recipe along similar lines for the corn on the cobb but had not tried it. It was really good.

The lamb taco was recommend by other reviewers and I was pleased to have selected it. The other choice, a cauliflower based taco, was not as pleasing.

The tacos are served flat - two on a platter - and the ingredients placed on what I would have called a tostada. It is tempting simply to fold it over and eat it as a normal taco. I got more value taste wise, though, by eating much of the contents with a fork before folding it over and eating the remainder. This way one got the full flavour. The deep fried kale in the vegetable taco, for example, was lost when eaten together with the other vegetables.

We did see people order the guacamole and chips ($16.00) and it did seem a reasonable serving, but don't know how it was received. A couple next to us left half of theirs uneaten.

It would be worth trying some other dishes but I would stick with the corn as the first course
