Hola Amigos, Secret Foodies hits Sydney’s Eastern suburbs for a Mexican Fiesta! Follow the red brick wall and walk past the yellow door, up the stairs and enter Cafe Pacifico a classic Mexican food destination and must-try Sydney experience. You’ll be taken away to a fun filled land of loud music, sizzling hot plates and a long tequila lined bar. When you hear the barman ring the bell be sure to race up and take your shot of tequila!
Well known for its lively atmosphere and impressive array of tequila our Foodies were not disappointed and Café Pacifico certainly upheld its reputation, the place was alive and buzzing. In between stuffing tortillas and nibbling nachos our Foodies were invited to engage in a mini margarita-making lesson with sombrero wearing owner, Phil Bayly. The shaking and pouring practice paid off with some tasty creations.
With over 90 unique types of tequila on offer you’d expect a few cheeky shots to be had. Thankfully we only had one allergic reaction to the chili tequila. One poor Foodie couldn’t stop sneezing and had a temporary lip enhancement a-la Mick Jagger!
You won’t find traditional, authentic Mexican at Café Pacifico. What they lack in traditional style food they make up in fresh produce and a night full of fun. It’s a great place for large groups, parties and you’re sure to make some new friends along the way.
Being in the heart of Darlinghurst you’re a stones throw away from lots of great bars to kick on the night. Alternatively, stick around until the late hours at Cafe Pacifico, you’re sure to find a few foodies to entertain you with their dance moves on the bar (we won’t name and names-but they are fabulous)!
I certainly had a brilliant night and met some fantastic people but enough about what I think, here’s what our Foodies thought.
