The Little Mexican in Balmain

I don’t particularly know anyone who doesn’t love Mexican food. I mean whats not to like?! The problem is that finding the right Mexican restaurant can be difficult as not all Mexican restaurants served quality food.

We’ll I’ve tried a few and most have been great, some not so great. Cantina Bar in the Sydney suburb of Balmain is definitely a place I’d recommend. The restaurant is small (hence Cantina), so I’d recommend perhaps calling ahead if there’s a number of you going. If you’re looking for something casual this is the place.

There are a few items on the menu you can either share or select your own mains. I had the  chipotle beef burrito and it was really nice, the serving was pretty decent too you could share it between two and grab another meal off the menu. But the real reason I was there was to try their Margarita….

The Margarita was sensational! Honestly, this has to be the best Margarita I’ve had to date. It was smooth and had a creamy texture to it. So even if you’re not into the whole Mexican thing, get down there and try their Margarita and have a few nibbles.

This place is a great little hangout and not to far from the city.
