“Mejico brings delicious home-styled Mexican fare from Mexico City to the Yucatan Penisnsula to Sydney’s Pitt Street”

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”42760″ img_size=””][vc_column_text]Mejico (pronounced meh-he-co) brings “market to table” goodness from Mexico City to the Yucatan Penisnsula. Located in the heart of Sydney’s CBD Pitt Street, and now Miranda. Mejico (click here) is renowned for it’s fresh modern twist on Mexican classics. Oh and did we mention that it has Sydney’s largest tequila selection? Arriba![/vc_column_text][vc_masonry_media_grid element_width=”6″ gap=”3″ grid_id=”vc_gid:1495367039072-861456e5-1fb1-10″ include=”42750,42759″][vc_column_text]Another restaurant under the Dr Sam Prince banner has set its sights on establishing itself as one of Sydney’s best Mexican hot spots. By focusing on sourcing some of the freshest ingredients direct from producers, the seasonal menu combines traditional classics with a modern twist. Don’t expect to see any tex mex style dishes on the menu. Instead anticipate slow roasted beef brisket, fresh ceviche and burnt jalapeño hummus.[/vc_column_text][vc_masonry_media_grid element_width=”6″ gap=”3″ grid_id=”vc_gid:1495366835212-677c0459-c842-4″ include=”42751,42767″][vc_column_text]The venue has quite an industrial feel to it, exposed brick, concrete beams, geometric shaped wall patterns and pops of colour set the tone for an exciting and somewhat engaging meal. Mejico’s atmosphere was buzzing on the Friday night we went. It’s not a ‘quite, sit down, romantic dinner’ type of restaurant. It’s loud, energizing, entertaining and most of all fun! Not to mention a killer sound track was playing in the background.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”42752″ img_size=””][vc_column_text]If the very large selection of tequila is slightly a little daunting, you are in luck! As there is nifty little tequila picker on your table, which is essentially a lucky dip type spinner.

I have dined here quite a couple times, and the staff always blow me away with how friendly they are and knowledgeable of not only the food menu but the extensive tequila/drinks menu.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://vimeo.com/180709994″][vc_column_text]One of the many novelties that comes with dining at Mejico is the ordering the guacamole which is assembled right in front of you at the table (comes with a full detailed run down of the ingredients and why they use them) and is accompanied by tasty platain chips, that really go down a treat ! This has always been a winner when I’ve dined at Mejico, although this time, it could have done with a little bit of extra spice.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”42755″ img_size=””][vc_column_text]

What we ate:

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]GUACOMOLE – Avacado, serrano chilli, Spanish onion, coriander, pistachios & plantain chips
BURNT JALEPNO HUMMUS –  Smashed chickpeas with scorched jalapeños, served with hand cut tortilla chips
CORN LOLLIPOPS – 3 lollipops of corn, topped with chipotle mayo, queso fresco, coconut & popcorn
COCHINITA PIBIL TAMALE – Traditional tamale stuffed with slow roasted pork & topped with pink pickled onions

TUNA (RAW BAR) – Tuna with avocado, ginger & capsicum, topped with spiced tapioca pearls & served on tortilla chips
SNAPPER (RAW BAR) – Fresh line-caught snapper, pickled ginger & pomegranate tossed with jalapeño & creamy goats cheese

SlOW ROASTED PORK (TACO) – Slow roasted pork, chilli caramel salsa, aioli @ crispy pork scratchings
6 HOUR SLOW ROASTED BEEF BRISKET – Ancho & coffee crusted brisket, smokey chipotle sauce, chilli mac & cheese
PATATAS BRAVAS – Smashed garlicky potatoes topped with paprika & chipolte aioli[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”42768″ img_size=””][vc_single_image image=”42758″ img_size=””][vc_single_image image=”42761″ img_size=””][vc_column_text]Standout dishes were: Cochinita Pinil Tamale, this was very soft and the pork melted in your mouth, the pickled onions balanced the dish out really nicely, think (soft polenta/baked omelette/frittata) with shredded pork throughout. Pork Taco, this was hands down my favourite dish of the night, I am a sucker for a good taco. The pork was perfectly cooked, with the nice crunch factor of crackling on top, the subtle cinnamon note made for the perfect sweetness to this juicy taco.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”42753″ img_size=””][vc_single_image image=”42756″ img_size=””][vc_column_text]Tuna tacos were incredibly fresh, Half spicy and peppery, half lemony, slightly sweet and packed full of flavour & the Patatas Bravas, these bad boys are a serious side dish, caramalised to perfection with the right amount of outer crispness and inner softness that perfectly accompanied the extremely tender Brisket.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”42763″ img_size=””][vc_single_image image=”42762″ img_size=””][vc_single_image image=”42769″ img_size=””][vc_column_text]The only downfall from the night was as the team at Mejico recited our order, one requested dish  missed making an appearance at the table. Besides this slight mishap, the service was practically faultless.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”42757″ img_size=””][vc_column_text]

Overall

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Dining at Mejico has always been a great experience for me. The restaurants buzzing atmosphere, the food & drinks are certainly crowd pleasers, but what really makes this restaurant stand out from the rest, is the staff. On every occasion they have been quite simply, fantastic. Mejico is great option for after work drinks or the perfect ‘south of the border’ culinary destination.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]Mejico
