The Best Mexican Restaurants in Melbourne
Remember when Mexican food was a box of hard-shelled tacos, a block of cheddar and a packet of spice mix? We’ve well and truly moved on from those days. Not only are Melbourne’s next-generation cantinas importing the obscure chillies, corn varieties and cheeses required to make genuine south-of-the-border cuisine, they have the agave-based spirits to match. So do it like the Mexicans do: order a few rounds of tacos or tostadas, and pair them with a Michelada, tequila or smoky mezcal. These are some of the best places in the city to do just that.
