Mr Moustache, Bondi

Mexican restaurants are sure hitting all over Sydney these days. One of the latest kids in town is Mr Moustache located amongst the restaurants and cafes on Hall Street in Bondi Beach. I love how hearty Mexican food is but Mr Moustache adds a slight twist to it by making things taste lighter and healthier. Mr Moustache also has the largest collection of mezcal (which is basically like tequila from another mother) in Australia. Healthier Mexican food + endless amounts of mezcal pretty much offset each other right? heh 

Corn off the cob topped with mayo, fresco cheese and chili powder - $7 each

Monthly catch ups - April 2014

Oh haiz.. so I'm bacccckkkkkkkk from climbing all those mountains and eating ALL the street food in Taiwan. More details to come over the following months. For now, here is my belated monthly catch up. 

Left: Berry milkshake and orange juice
Right: Croissant French toast w/ season fruits and maple syrup

One of the places which I have been dying to check out for many years now is The Boathouse. Unfortunately the Boathouse doesn't take bookings so I recommend for you to head there early to grab a table, especially if you are coming in a big group. I am soooo grateful they opened up a restaurant at Balmoral Beach as it saved me from trekking it all the way to Palm Beach. In saying that though, I actually didn't know there was one in Balmoral until the day before going and almost went to Palm Beach.
