I was so excited when I learnt that Mexico (the uber cool and delicious restaurant chain) was finally going to have their first restaurant in the South Island in Christchurch!
We have been a number of times to the Britomart restaurant when visiting Auckland and have never been disappointed – delicious food in a funky environment that is very well priced, washed down with tasty margaritas.
Eli and I were lucky enough to attend the opening of Mexico Christchurch last night and were suitably impressed with the decor. They have turned a low lying building into a riot of colour and Mexican paraphernalia as you would expect if you have been to any of the other restaurants. It’s a huge restaurant compared with the Britomart one which is great as the only downside to these restaurants is that you can’t book.
We enjoyed a number of margaritas (I was very surprised by my lack of a headache this morning!) along with the amazing food – Mexican fried chicken, pork crackling with guacamole (this may be the best combo ever!!), pulled pork tacos to name but a few of the dishes that were being generously handed around. Word on the street is a new menu rolls out to all the restaurants over the next couple of months so we are looking forward to getting amongst that!
I highly recommend Christchurch punters head on down to Mexico – you won’t be disappointed… Andale andale arriba arriba!!!
All the staff had amazing Mexican themed face paint!
I love how that in Christchurch you look out the doors and see an empty lot with porta-loos and a number of road cones!
Pretty impressive walls in the ladies loos!
