Méjico is the latest and largest tequila bar in Sydney and with 150 tequilas boasts the biggest list in Sydney – so we are told. So this BAR FLY dropped in at the CBD launch party last night to give the cocktails a nudge nudge wink wink. I was tipping (tippling) cocktail creations like Sweet Desire and Activist to my lips. And could this be Australia’s most diverse offering of South American and Spanish wines and varietals? Seems that Sydney is excited; the place was hopping with Sydney party people all invited for a first peek.
Of course I didn’t only try the food but also hung out next to the kitchen. With a Méjico motto like “looks like a restaurant, thinks like a market” we’re told the menu will be changed as often as what’s best each day at the market, but there’ll always be signature ceviches such as Hiramasa kingfish with ruby grapefruit and watermelon, or braised lamb shoulder folded into soft shell tacos and served with mint mayonnaise and gaujillo chilli. Méjico’s waitstaff make guacamole to order, right in front of you. They also grill corn, hand-make plaintain chips and house-bake tostadas.
