Mamasita...


Is situated on the second floor of the high-flying east Collins Street area near Collins Place. The view is tranquil and the mix of a bar and tables caters for the perfect lunchbreak. Mexican dishes like Quesadilas, tortillas and other gourmet food all fill the menu with acceptable prices. Though not cheap, the food is of a great quality and a dining experience does accompany this restaurant.

This place has a staircase leading up to the restaurant that you will probably become accustom to. This is because a queue of people often wait on the staircase as the tables are often all full. We waited about 15 minutes which wasn’t that bad and was worth it as the dining experience wasn’t too rushed.

I first had the de Berenjena taco ($5*) which was filled with eggplant, zucchini and guocamole being vegetarian. It was not oily at all like the type you would get a fast food mexican shop. For main I had the de Pollo Tostadita ($14*) which was a fried tortilla filled with chicken, avocado and cheese. It was delicious and yet again tasted quite healthy.

Service was really good, with meals coming out about 15 minutes after ordering. They also fill up your cups with water without having a jug on the table which added to the dining experience. The restaurant was full on a friday lunchtime and though it was noisy, it was not chaotic and the dining area wasn’t squashed. 

Great for special occasions or group meetings, typically suiting the white collars on their lunch breaks. Granted I’m only a teenager so I felt a bit out of place there but at the same time special.

A very bored student once decided to open up their own website in anticipation that people would enjoy reading the experiences of them, as they venture through various Melbourne food hotspots. Though new to what Melbourne has to offer, even though I lived here my entire life, I plan to write about my best interests without boring you people. Principally writing food however you never know where this might go. I feel like abusing the backspace key but nevermind, this'll do. My first post, let's just hope I don't laugh at this in a years time.
