Mad Mex, Darlinghurst
After hearing so much about the Mad Mex (and that Mad Mex challenge!), Sean and I decided to go see what all the fuss was about.
The first thing that greets you as you enter the outlet is a chandelier made up of Corona Bottles!! Being quite into crafts, I was absolutely excited by this light piece. I know, it's simple and not hard to make, but still!! So pretty...
I love how they've got that salad bar look to it, and you get to see them assembling your order! I feel like it takes away the mystery, but the best thing about it is that the food still tastes awesome!
Sean ordered the Regular Burrito, $10.90, which is the signature dish and the subject of the Mad Mex Challenge. The Regular Burrito is apparently 500g, and the Burrito in the challenge is a whopping 1KG! Would it be hard to do? Probably not, but just be careful not to have had a first lunch before it, like I had that day. /guilty.
But anyway, on to the Burrito that Sean had.
Believe it or not, it came with instuctions!
I thought that it was very cute that they had instructions on how to properly enjoy/unwrap your burrito!
Although it was Sean's, what kind of food blogger (and self confessed glutton) would I be if I didn't at least have a bite? Ok, maybe more than one bite. But it was just SO GOOD! I love how the soft floury tortilla just seems to tear ever so slightly with every time that your teeth sink into the gorgeous meat, bean and rice mixture within.
That's not to say that my Quesadilla, $9.90, was anything to laugh at either.
Creamy sour cream, melty cheese and tangy hot sauce was absolutely addictive! It's like mouthfuls of amazingly addictive wedges just bursting with flavour in your mouth. It was just very slightly salty, tangy, fresh and rich all at the same time! LOVE IT.
The food, coupled with the friendly and extremely helpful staff, makes for a big, "I HAVE TO GO BACK!!" Good stuff, and highly recommended.
