09 Sep Maya Tequila Bar & Grill, South Yarra
Aiming to provide fresh and tasty Mexican food (and of course, tequila), Maya Tequila Bar & Grill has a menu mainly designed to share. It has a kitchen out the front of the restaurant, the bar at the back and plenty of tables around and in-between, allowing it to cater for functions. To try a variety of things, I ordered a Paloma, the Pollo Frito and a Pollo Mole Burrito. And yes. I did eat this all myself.
The Paloma was recommended by the bartender and it was wonderfully refreshing. The chicken ribs were incredibly juicy and the moist meat, crispy coating and tasty sauces made for a winning combination. Although the menu said there were frijoles in the burrito, I couldn’t spot it. I was starting to get full at this point, so my stomach was probably thanking me for the loss of the beans anyway. The tortilla was crunchy and its tasty contents made for a warm, comforting meal. This was the first time I’ve had a burrito with a tortilla this crunchy and I have to say I quite liked it.
