Mejico; A Restaurant To Taco Bout…May 12, 2017


There is a restaurant in Sydney that actually encourages the enthusiasm some (me) get when the opportunity arises to chant me-hee-co whilst clacking invisible castanets in the air.

Mejico in Sydney’s CBD brings the very best of Mexican cuisine to the shores of Sydney, allowing those of us not fortunate enough to make the trip to the land of tequila and tacos to revel in all its goodness.

With a super modern fit-out and dishes streamlining out of the kitchen that are almost too pretty to eat, this ultra-cool restaurant is a one of a kind look at what fusion – that reviled word – can do to some hearty Mexican flare.

Everything they do screams excitement – which is what all good food should make us do. Dining at Mejico is a true experience, one they promise will “stimulate all 5 senses”, and something they have been able to achieve since opening their doors in 2013.

Dr Sam Prince is a humanitarian, philanthropist, entrepreneur, medical doctor and founder of Mejico – but personally I believe his title deserves to be changed to the KING of Mexico. Sam and his team pride themselves on market-to-table dining, this ethos ingrained in everything they offer. They create dishes using only the freshest local seasonal produce and source ingredients directly from producers which thus enables them to “reflect the immediate world around us”.

Guacamole is not simple a bowl of green blob served with stale corn chips. Oh no, not at Mejico. Keeping with this mission, Mexico’s famous green dip is prepared right in front of your eyes and is served alongside plantain (cooking banana) chips – which as an added bonus because it means it’s totally healthy (not that an excuse is ever needed to devour some guac).

Other menu items include jalapeño poppers which are crumbed, stuffed with feta and served with chipotle mayonnaise, an amazing array of tacos, sashimi dishes, slow cooked meats and desserts (maragarita cheesecake anyone?). There’s also plenty of vegetarian options too.

“Tequila Tequila on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?”

Mejico also proudly stock over two hundred Tequila types – and put their own spin on things (literally), giving you the option to decide your destiny using their tequila wheel – because tequila wasn’t fun enough already.

For those after some Mejickin-good food, make sure you waste no time at visiting Mejico for they’re sure to have you yelling ¡Ay, caramba! by the time you leave.
