Mexico is known for its fresh, colourful and flavour-packed dishes, and that’s exactly what Mad Mex in Waurn Ponds delivers. Only the freshest ingredients are picked for each dish, and if you pick up any meat-based dishes from the menu, you’ll be pleased to know it’s been slow cooked for six hours – so quality is followed each step of the process. And did we mention chillies are imported from Mexico itself? Adding another notch to the authenticity at this Mexican joint.
As for the rest of the menu, you’ll find a large array of Baha-inspired dishes ranging from various burritos serving as a meal held in your hands to the naked burrito minus the tortilla. There’s also plenty of quesadillas, tacos and nachos to order. There are options for the gluten free, vegetarian, vegan and alterations available with each dish you can order. Described as the “hand-held power pack of the burrito world”, the Grande Melt is a delicious and healthy option for lunch or dinner. In a toasted tortilla you’ll find low GI black beans, pico de gallo, cheese, fajita mix, sour cream, crisp lettuce & your choice of filling & salsas.
And if you’re feeling extra hungry, be sure to try out the 1kg burrito challenge, which – if completed successfully – will see you go home with a seriously full belly and something extra.
Factor all the above in with the fact that Mad Mex also house a range of imported drinks (as well as an array of Coronas used as decoration at the venue), the eatery quickly becomes a place to gather your friends and family for some good food, great fun and a quality Mexican feast.
