Say goodbye to food regret at Mexicano

November 13, 2014 at 5:41 pm

Let’s be honest, one of the most stressful parts of ordering a meal is the ever present “food regret”. You think you’re choosing the right dish and when everyone gets served, you get that sinking feeling. Thankfully, you can avoid this dining disaster by visiting Mexicano, another addition to Neutral Bay’s restaurant scene that encourages groups to share and try each dish. Problem solved.

Even though it’s tucked between the slew of new small bars in  Waters Rd, you’ll be able to spot Mexicano straight away with the huge skull that marks the spot. Step inside, and you’ll be welcomed by long community style share tables with mural style art splattered across them. Sharing is the aim of the game so the best way to start is with a plate of fries with Valentine sauce. Next for appetisers? Anything with chipotle mayo.

As you move to main course, your food regret anxiety might begin to kick in. But don’t worry. The best way to play it is to order a round of tacos and quesadillas for the table. If you’ve got a vegetarian in the group, the triple cheese quesadillas are the way to go. For the carnivores amongst you, it’s certainly worth ordering the slow cooked beef brisket tacos with Mexican slaw. Throw in some fish tacos for good measure and everybody will be happy.

The only time you might want to keep a course to yourself is dessert. The team at Mexicano have put together a dessert menu that goes from the humble ice-cream sandwich to salted caramel and ancho chilli chocolate truffles (there’s four to a serve but maybe you should keep that information to yourself).

Mexicano may be the new kid on the block but the locals are already flooding to get their fix.
