With several popular venues around Sydney, the authentic, Guadalajara-style Mexican food of Dos Senoritas is no secret among those in the know. That’s particularly true of their Crows Nest outlet, which is right in the heart of the restaurant and bar throng around Willoughby Road and Falcon Street. Its location alone would make Dos Senoritas busy (advance bookings are strongly advised, by the way), but so too would the delicious spread of properly done Mexican fare, from taquitos to churros, tamales to tequila slammers!
We loved Dos Senioritas! Shame it had to close down. Great food, tasty drinks, great service. The remaining restaurant at Gladesville still offers great food.
Always great food, service, sangria. The Mole Oaxaca is awesome.
Sydney’s Mexican scene is crowded. There are new-age hipster joints that prioritise decor and marketing. There are old-school hangovers from the days when serving avocado was enough to be exotic. And there are American Tex-Mex places where a sloppy burrito is judged by size rather than taste. Dos Senoritas help you filter through all those to the real deal. This Falcon Street favourite relies on traditional Mexican recipes (and some specialist spices brought in from across the Pacific) and quality Australian ingredients to offer up something unique in Crows Nest.
The two towering giants of Mexican food in Sydney of course make an appearance at Dos Senoritas – though their tacos are more like what you’ll find in Mexico and the range of burritos is much more creative than any other Mexican joint in Crows Nest (the aptly named Supercheeseygooeychimichanga should speak for itself). You’ll also unearth rarer gems here on Falcon Street like a secret-recipe pork crock pot, fresh seafood enchiladas and an awesome house specialty of chicken breast cooked in mole oaxaca (dark chocolate sauce). Dos Senoritas have a great range of Mexican beers and refreshing cocktails, and remember to leave room for churros!
