El Grotto, 5 / 148 The Esplanade, Scarborough.
Andale! Arriba! … Which just means “hurry up” or “get going”. If ever there was somewhere to get you going it would be El Grotto a Mexican Taqueria and Bar on the Beach.
el PUBLICO, 511 Beaufort Street, Highgate, Phone 0418 187 708.
Mexican Brunch … el PUBLICO is a stalwart member of the Highgate eateries. The venue has been around since the rebirth of the small bar scene in Perth, Circa 2013. Their new twist is to offer Brunch on the Weekends and let me tell you, it’s worth a visit.
Soul Cocina Cantina, Location Varies, Phone 0400 831 131.
Hello Soul Food … Some lovely soul posted me a link to this fairly new Food Van. And, am I glad they did. Soul Cocina Cantina offer Latin American food, including paella, fresh corn tacos, burritos and chimichangas. And, it is exactly what we’d been waiting for, Street Food wise.
Salsas Fresh Mex, Galleria Shopping Centre, Corner Old Collier and Walter Roads, Morley WA 6062, Phone 9275 9647.
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly … Salsas Fresh Mex is the brain child of the people behind Boost Juice and Grill’d Burgers. So it was a no-brainer that I would want to try their Mexican food, being a fan of both other outlets.
La Paleta, 2 / 6 Geelong Court, Fremantle WA 6160.
Iced Pops … La Paleta literally translates to “The Palette” but in Mexican slang it means iced pop or iced lolly. They offer up an amazing palette of iced pops from their market stall.
La Cholita, 279 William Street, Northbridge WA 6003.
Phone: 9227 9238.
Tacos … Ah, a lovely lunch at La Cholita’s today with friends. There is something wonderful about being able to order small plates of delicious food. Rather than the tough decision of one large plate that you may not like. And, the Restaurant is doing small plates of delicious food well. Especially on the weekends, when they’re open for lunch.
Zambrero, 625 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley WA 6050.
Phone: 6161 9436.
Fresh and Zesty … What I like about Zambrero is that their food is fresh, healthy and cheap. When you get the right person making your tacos that is.
