Adelaideans wept when the old Lucky Lupitas was demolished in 2016, but Lucky’s is back and business is booming
Expect progressive modern Latino inside this O’Connell Street shopfront, plated-up amid quirky murals and sculptural stacks of hot-sauce crates, red kidney bean tins and imported beer. If you’re feeling more Adelaide than Acapulco, shoot for the more predictable nachos, enchiladas and quesadillas with south-of-the-border accompaniments (there’s even a hamburguesa). Or boost your authenticity rating with a crisp fish taco, Cuban seafood stew or pulled-beef brisket tortilla. There’s an impressive rack of chilli sauces at your disposal: the volcanic El Yucatero makes Tabasco seem like tomato sauce. Cool your boots with imported Mex beers (Dos Equis, Negra Modelo); or a carafe of rustic house sangria. Arriba!
