Perched over a 7/11 and up a secret staircase on Collins Street, Mamasita has been treating Melbournians for almost a decade to the rich, vibrant and passionate flavours of Mexico.

Mamasita and their new head chef, Martin Zozaya, will take you on an adventure which encompasses their great love for Mexican cuisine and culture. Their dedication to the art of Mexican cooking embraces both traditional and regional techniques that truly make eating there a modern Mexican experience. With a wealth of experience and knowledge which includes running kitchens from Mexico City and successful stints in Buenos Aires and Madrid, Zozaya brings the gorgeous Mexican vibrancy that could be something straight out of a Frida Kahlo painting.
