I don't know why I said that.
Anyhoo, grabbed a little Mexican for quick lunch today. If there are American readers out there, do pardon me for posting this entry, for you see, Mexican food is not a common sight in Sydney. I'm sure you're bored with Mexican / Tex-Mex food, as I'm sure that I'll be bored when you blog about eating Turkish Kebabs (very common in Sydney). LOL
This small cantina is actually not Tex-Mex, it's more like Cal-Mex food (the owners are from Baja California). This affects the overall taste and 'spectrum' of the food, as I understand it. Indeed, it's quite unlike the usual Mexican food I consume (which are usually Tex-Mex). I notice that Baja California cuisine use a lot of black beans and they cook their beef in a different way - although most of the yummy staples are there (guacamole, salsa, etc).
The place is really eccentric - just look at the Corona bottle 'chandelier' and the luchador wall mural. Muy Mexicano! They also use chairs that are made of recycled street signs. In fact, their restaurant is so professionally designed, it kind of looks like they're a part of a big restaurant chain, but as far as I know, this darlinghurst outlet is currently their only one.
-> Yum yum. Tender beef with black bean and guac. Highly addictive.
BTW, I can't wait to someday re-visit lovely Mexico. I've only been as far as Tijuana in the past, and I resolve to visit Chichen Itza before I turn 30!
(moo moo!! let's go!! you drive!!)
Anyway, for now, Adios, charolastras!
