If you’re chasing a West Australian take on coastal Mexican cuisine, this South Freo joint is where it’s at. Grab your amigos and venture to this historic port city because we’re talking Margaritas, Iced Tea-Quila, the Bloody Maria or the Native Negroni. Dishes are designed to be shared, and menu items include the famous fish tacos, ceviche and braised beef shin with beans and chorizo. Vegan and vegetarian options are also available. And make sure you get the guacamole – it is damn good here.
Mexican food hasn't always been a staple of the Australian restaurant scene, but we've embraced the cuisine with gusto over the past few years. And there's something about Perth's gorgeous weather that cries out for the fresh, zesty flavours of Mexico. It's a scientific fact (well, we made this up but we're pretty sure that it's true) that tequila, mezcal and Mexican beer also taste better when the sun is shining, so Perth is the perfect place to enjoy a Mexican tipple, as well.
Perth is home to a collection of loco Mexican joints well worth a visit, so we’ve put together a list of our favourite Mex restaurants and bars. Whether you’re searching for the perfect Mexican-inspired date location or embarking on a tequila cocktail operation with the girls, grove your way through Perth with this list of bucket list-worthy Mexican joints to guide your escapades. Vamos de fiesta! Let’s go party!
