Melburnians have been mad for Mexican fare for a good while now. So why try Si Senor? Simple: it’s the real deal.
Yes, it’s got all the usual menu favourites, from tacos and burritos to tortas and aguas frescas. And yes, it’s got the customary smattering of skulls and cacti. But really, that’s where the similarities end.
Styled as a 1950s home complete with retro fridge, laminex bench and well-loved sofa, this Mexican eatery will take you back to old-school family life in Mexico, peeling turquoise paint and all.
The food is made using old family recipes by Mexican chef Cindy Flores. Her handmade floral decorations are scattered throughout the two-storey, five-room space.
But what really sets Si Senor apart is its ever-evolving collection of commissioned Mexican-inspired art, traditional homewares and imported furniture, which is all available to purchase.
