Thick-as-a-brick burritos are the order of the day at Gladesville's great Mexican cantina
Truck on down to Gladesville and join the fiesta at Dos Senoritas, a poky restaurant that’s packed to the rafters almost every night. Sky-blue walls, sombreros and rainbow ponchos set the scene – the only thing missing is a mariachi band. It’s a popular spot for groups and kids on weekends, so dismiss any thoughts of a quiet, intimate dinner. Seating is also tight, so expect to make friends with the table next to you. Every table scores a complimentary basket of golden tortilla chips and a saucer of fiery salsa as soon as they sit down – a nice touch.
Now, if you’ve ever wished that burritos came in XXL, then the Mac Daddy Burro ($25) is your dream come true. Leave your belt at home and put on your loosest pants – this is going to be a serious chow-down. The Mac Daddy Burro is a behemoth of a meal, weighing in at over half a kilo. Choose your protein – pork chilli verde, shredded beef, shredded chicken or minced beef – and sit back and wait for the burrito bomb smothered in spicy salsa verde and mole oaxca, a dark chocolate sauce that is smoky and slightly bitter. Guacamole, sour cream and side serves of refried beans and Mexican rice will tide you over until at least lunchtime the next day.
