Most fashion themselves as either colorful “cantina” style (Mexican bar) or an authentic street vendor. Something special happens to the culinary experience when you can be so on-the-go with your food. Imagine walking down High St. with a pork taco in hand, towards your favorite pub with your mates. Couldn’t we all appreciate that moment? Well, the Mexican restaurants in Northcote make it possible. Keep reading for more information!
Let’s just name-drop some of the most common orders at the Mexican restaurants in Northcote, just to whet your appetite…. Burritos…. Tacos…. Burritos again…. Quesadillas… nachos…. Mmmmmmmmm
Put together the core ingredients, many Mexican dishes involve a tortilla base (soft or crunchy) that is layered with avocado, cheese, beans, and a meat base, which is then mixed with sauteed garlic and onion. The meal is topped by cilantro, tomatoes, and whatever else you prefer. Sautéing or grilling are the most common methods of cooking found at Mexican restaurants in Northcote, and we certainly recommend going for a Mexican-style cerveza (beer) or a margarita to get into the Latin spirit a bit!
House corn chips with melted cheese topped with olives, salsa, guacamole, and sour cream. These nachos come out warm and crispy. When they hit the guacamole… they hit the spot. Available at all local Mexican restaurants in Northcote!
2. Classic Bean & Cheese Burrito
Choice of black beans or refried pinto bean with rice, cheese, lettuce, salsa, and sour cream all wrapped in a large flour tortilla. There is nothing heartier than a bite into a packed burrito. The tortilla, black beans and cheese play off each other beautifully. Highly recommended from the Mexican restaurants in Northcote.
3. Fajitas (Beef, chicken or Farmer’s Market veggies)
Your choice of filling, sautéed with red and green capsicum, onion and mushroom, served sizzling and accompanied by house made guacamole, Mexican rice and warm flour tortillas. Top with sour cream, cheese and salsa.
