When you’re hungry in L.A, you can pretty much throw a rock blindfolded and it’ll hit an amazing Mexican restaurant. Sadly in Melbourne, we’re not so lucky. While Sydney at least has Rider above the Hopetoun, or Mad Mex opposite our favourite pub The Gaslight, we’ve been lacking in the awesome Mexican food department. Until now.

Trippy Taco “Fresh Mex” Cantina serves amazingly fresh and unexpectedly healthy Mexican fare. I do have to warn you, it’s vegetarian, but speaking for a carnivore like myself, you won’t miss the meat. The food is incredible and well priced for a relaxed breakfast or lunch. Plus it’s licensed, so you can get your Corona on. You’ll need to if you, like me, enjoy getting into the hot-sauce.
