Hecho En Mexico is bringing lip-smacking street-style Mexican food (and tequila) to Ballarat

Ballarat's newest Mexican offering will open Monday, February 27.

Margaritas, sangria, Mezcal Palomas, Chilaquiles, tacos… this and more is what you can expect at Hecho En Mexico‘s newest venue in Ballarat.

Following its most recent opening in Geelong last year, Hecho En Mexico is expanding once more and bringing fresh and playful Mexican cuisine to the regional city.

Stay up to date with what’s happening in and around the region here.

Opening its bright, light-filled space at 411 Sturt Street on Monday, February 27 2023, this little gem promises a paradise of tacos and margaritas. And to celebrate its arrival, the restaurant is offering $5 tacos and $12 classic Patron margaritas all week until Sunday, March 5.

Concerned with authenticity first and foremost, Hecho En Mexico was created by hospitality veterans Menak Grover and Parveen Bajar with the aim to take customers on a culinary journey to Mexico City and beyond.

Pouring margaritas near across Victoria for a few years now, with nine spots in Melbourne, one in Warrnambool and one in Geelong, this new venue marks the business’s 12th outpost and its third foray into regional Victoria.

Like the zesty margaritas made fresh every day, Hecho En Mexico is here to shake things up on the Ballarat busiest strip with a reputation for being the “fun, youthful, and a little bit playful” Mexican joint.

With a vibrant decor, down-to-earth staff and an exciting atmosphere that has customers talking about long after they’ve polished off their burritos, here it’s all about great chill vibes and lively flavours with a twist of fun.

Boasting the mantra “fresh is best” practiced throughout their restaurants, Hecho en Mexico is creating fresh Mexican food and cocktails everyday, with a menu that mirrors their youthful and fun energy. The seriously extensive menu is packed to the brim with entrees, tacos, burritos, mains, burgers, salads and dessert. The menu is kid friendly and designed to offer gluten free options.

Think Jalisco Style Birria tacos, chilli fries, street style corn, smoked stuffed jalapenos, quesadillas, chimichanga, burritos rolled with warm tortillas (eyes on the California Burrito) and their famous nachos with in-house made fresh salsas, fresh guacamole, and marinades.

There’s also Spanish Paella, Fajita, Enchiladas, onion rings, Habanero chicken wings, and taquitos, while desserts include cinnamon nachos, Mexican warm churros, Nutella burrito and sizzling brownie. To top it all off, there’s even a dedicated vegan menu with all your favourites featuring.

If you’re looking for icy cold jugs of sangria, and a long list of tequilas and mezcals to match the bright and buzzing atmosphere and hefty burritos, you’ve come to the right place. Taste your way through eight different margaritas, impressive cocktails, beers, wine, and Tequila flights if you dare. There’s also ‘dirty shots’, soft drinks and mocktails to round it all out.

Hecho En Mexico will be located at 411 Sturt Street, Ballarat. Find out more via the website here
