What do you do when you can't escape overseas? Go eat out, on international food. I haven't been to Mexico, so can't comment on the authenticity - but damn, this is fine food. Lucky Lupitas.
In an unfortunate location perhaps, just outside of Flinders Medical Centre, with not much parking. This little cantina packs a punch. So many rave reviews. Frequent waits for tables.
Why? No bookings. Fresh, basic, tasty food. Casual and friendly service.
Cute mismatched cutlery and glassware to match the granny tables. Green walls. Funky lightbulb feature lights. Rustic. Music. Music that my three year old daughter bops to. A vibe to comfort and relax.
Yuca Fritas - taking me back to Brazil.
Hamburguesa Hogao - converting me to the meat in bun meal
Elote - the tastiest corn and condiments I have ever eaten.
And I think we all loved the crsip, salty, every so just right, papas fritas.
We went for our eight year wedding anniversary. At home, we watched our wedding video. We saw us speaking of our travels, watching a belly dancer perform, and us dancing salsa and merengue to Turkish music. How cultural.
