About South Of The Wall

Richmond amigos say hola to Mexican fare and margaritas at South Of The Wall on Cremorne Street. This fun, funky cocktail bar and restaurant oozes a laidback vibe, with worn brick walls adorned with colourful Talavera pottery, polished concrete floors, mosaic tiles and vibrant blue seating, celebrating all things south of the border. With a tequila in hand, take a seat alfresco under the watchful gaze of Donald Trump peering over the frontier wall and choose from a menu bursting with a fiesta of flavours, like grilled fish tacos, avocado, slaw and pico de Gallo. Be tempted by a street chook burrito, with frijoles, shrettuce, herb lime rice and a side of Mexi fries; or a pork belly taco, crackling, pine salsa, slaw and habanero mayo.
