Méjico, Sydney CBD

Méjico, the latest addition to Sydney’s Mexican revolution, launched last night amidst live entertainment with a harpist and dancers heating up the floor.

Bold Aztec-style feature walls, hand-woven pendant lighting, fluorescent colours and hot pink and white stripe clad bar staff give the venue a contemporary look, the work of designers Juicy in collaboration with Project 82.

Méjico (pronounced meh-he-co) is not just another Mexican joint to open in Sydney. The venue offers a point of difference and an experience designed to celebrate the theatre of a marketplace. Order guacamole, and the waitstaff will make it to order in front of you. You’ll also find them grilling corn in husks, serving handmade plaintain chips and house-baking tostadas.

Head Chef Daniel Schai’s has created a menu that changes according to what’s best at the market, with signature ceviches, market fresh fish, salsas and slow-cooked meats as a staple. Think Pacific Scallops Ceviche with avocado, pomegranate, jalapeno and eschalots, Grilled Ocean Trout Taco with chipotle, picked red cabbage and jalapeno, Chargrilled Black Angus Sirloin with quinoa, black bean, pepitas and chmichurri, and an Agave-glazed Caramel Fudge for dessert.

Méjico boasts one of the largest Tequila and Mezcal selections in Sydney and the wine list has an emphasis on South American and Spanish wines. Cocktails are market fresh with seasonal fruit, citrus and unusual ingredients such as chia seeds.

Drop in for a drink, stay for a meal and enjoy the market fresh experience that Méjico brings to the table.

Méjico opens to the public on Thursday, 21 February 2013.

Mejico is featured in Sydney’s top tequila bars.
