Let's taco 'bout it

For the second course, the $28 Express Lunch Set calls for a choice of Tostada de Atun or Tostada de Res. The former seemed like the more popular (and lighter) choice of the two. Just as well, but the carnivore in me was enticed by the charming Tostada de Res.

Unlike regular shredded or minced beef, the grass-fed Angus sirloin served in this dish reminded me of seared beef tartare – tender yet pleasantly chewy. One bite, and I was hooked.

This was topped with red onions, crispy leek and a chipotle mayo that went exceptionally (but unsurprisingly) well with everything. I wouldn’t recommend this to those who abstain from raw/partially cooked beef; it’s best to check with the waitstaff.

Ordered the moreish pulled pork tacos ($11.90 for two) crammed with smoky pulled pork, pico de gallo and lettuce (which could've been served in a less messy way) as well as the chilli cheese burger ($15.90) that was bursting with chilli con carne, guacamole and of course cheeeeeese. My personal favourite and a definite must-try would be the Mexican grilled corn ($7.90). Sweet, crunchy corn slathered with mayo, paprika, oregano, spring onion and cotija cheeeeeese. The ambience could be improved (hello pesky flies and tables lacking in privacy) tho!
