It was a warm and balmy night (by that I mean hot, sticky and gross) night when me and Lisa went out for dinner at Mamasita’s. The food was just astonishingly good, it changed my perspective on Mexican food forever, and needless to say I will never happily settle for Taco Bill(though I will continue to go for the fishbowls) or Old El Paso again! I’m no food reviewer (though I have totally been tempted to drop the “I write a restaurant review blog” line just to see what’ll happen) but I’d love to think I’m a foodie in the making. I’m not one of those kids who only eat processed foods, drinks slurpies with energy shots and turn my nose up at anything that sounds remotely weird. I’m pretty much willing to try everything (with the exception of ginger and raw meat) and then going home to attempt my own version. Though, I think it’s too late in my fashion blogging life to add ‘slash foodie’ to my title haha! Anyway, back on mamasita! They don’t take bookings so we lined up for about 30 mins in the hot stairway before we could even get a place at the bar but the lovely sangria I had to quench my thirst afterwards was totally worth it Because of the wait we had previously (and possibly the Adrian Grenier lookalike bar tender) we ate at the bar. 2 serves of tacos was shared between us(ok I admit, not adventurous as we could be), one beef and chorizo and one fish. Both were just delightful, especially with the lovely and light salsa verde. For some reason ordering the grilled corn slipped our minds but you know what didn’t? Dessert! Coconut flan and grilled banana with icecream! (wish I took a picture of the dessert but I was too eager to tuck in)It was far too nice of a night to go home straight away so a visit to one of my favourite haunts; the Parliament House stairs was definitely a great idea.I love that it’s like our MET stairs just with less tourist and more political protests, I go there (or sometimes city museum)whenever I’m down the Paris end of the Collins or Bourke St just to chill out (granted the weather is permitting and there aren’t any protests or people taking wedding photos) but I never had a chance to get snaps. It’s beautiful from any angle!
I hope it wasn’t illegal to jump on the window or anything :s but these are pretty awesome photos!I didn’t get a good outfit photo so this’ll do.
