touche hombre, melbourne.

I am a huge fan on Mexican food so when I walked past this place on my recent trip to Melbourne I knew I had to pay them a visit before I left.

The moment we sat down we were given a bottle of water, in an old tequila bottle (pictured below). I love using old bottles etc. and repurposing them so when I saw this I loved it!

We then proceeded to pour over the menu, which was completely in mexican/Spanish... so that made ordering a bit...interesting, but luckily we knew figured it out pretty quickly what was what. When we made our order we quickly found out what we thought was an uber cheap meal was going to be a little more expensive as the $6.50 we saw for the taco was per taco.. (yeah, I'm used to my Sydney mexican place which serves a few tacos for a cheap price...) so we were told to grab an entree to share. With that we went back to looking at the menu, not knowing what any of the entrees were and decided to grab the Totopos because the description sounded similar to nachos..

When the food came out we were grateful to the waitress who told us to order more. The highlight of the evening would have to have been the Totopos, which in my mind would've went down with one each because they were THAT good.

Find them:
233 Lonsdale St, Melbourne, VIC

Entrees: Totopos, $12

Mains: De Carnitas (left) & Del Coronel (right), $6.50 each

homemade hot chips.

One of my favourite snacks, especially during winter, is hot chips. For those who've been around me during lunch hour would know my first choice 90% of the time is hot chips. Although this is well and good while I'm out and about, when I'm at home I prefer to make my own food from scratch. So, here is my recipe for homemade chips.

This recipe makes approximately two servings.

  • 3 large cream delight potatoes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Paprika
  • Extra virgin oil
  1. Preheat oven to 180˚C fan forced.
  2. Cut up the potatoes into the size and shape you desire, I usually cut them quite thin so they cook faster.
  3. Drizzle with oil and add a pinch of salt and a generous amount of pepper and paprika - rub in the seasoning.
  4. Bake for 30 mins, or until chips go golden brown.
  5. VOILA! Hot chips is made! Enjoy as a side or as a snack :)
