Campechano tacos: grilled ox tongue and cheek, ghost chilli, house pickles, taco shop guac.
Like all good things, a table at Mamasita is definitely worth waiting for, so follow the crowd to this Collins Street establishment. This hugely popular eatery has been described as Melbourne’s first true taqueria and its smart wooden benches, banquettes and bar stools are full from lunch ’til late. Charismatic staff add to the fun, energetic vibe and a creative menu plays on authentic Mexican flavours in feasts that come fresh and far from cliché. Dishes are designed to share with friends so all can enjoy multiple courses together; throw back a tequila and carve out a path with crispy fried whitebait, mayo, pickled cucumber and jalapeno. For the main affair, say arriba to braised beef cheek tostadas, red mole, guajillo, thyme, sesame and corn, before Mexican tiramisu with Anejo Tequila.
