About Mexican Burrito Cantina

Mexican by Mexicans. Too long has Sydney suffered under the yoke of faux-Mex outfits offering dreary versions of the true burrito and it’s many brothers. Fully acknowledging the breadth and depth of Mexican cuisine – its indigenous and old-world sources – Mexican Burrito Cantina, down Crown Street in Surry Hills, is serious about its food. But to be seriously into food and Mexican is also a pact never to sacrifice fun, and this cantina never forgets to celebrate. Naturally, you’re invited.

More about Mexican Burrito Cantina, Surry Hills

From the purity of southeastern Mexican sazon cuisine, to the many regional variations of the essential mole (e.g. guacamole, you dig?), to the many more specific Mexican dishes that fuse European and pre-Hispanic techniques and ingredients – chiles en nogada, adobos, cochinita pibil – Mexican Burrito Cantina knows it’s authentic comida. This Surry Hills Mexican restaurant, down Crown Street. is owned and operated by expat Mexicans, who are only to happy to represent their national and regional cuisines to Sydney diners, those who think they know what Mexican food entails.

Grab a bowl of guac to share, or some Mexican-style tapas. These latter, for solo or for two (you know tapas are meant to be shared), offer up ground beef, beans, chilli con carne, mixed veggies or ranchero-style chicken. Then there’s cochinita pibil (a slow-roasted pork dish), ranchero-style shrimp, grilled chicken or grilled steak. And that’s just for starters at Surry Hills’ most Mexican of Mexican cantina. Next, choose your style: burritos, corn tacos either soft or shell, nachos, quesadillas, enchiladas,ensaladas and fajitas. Either way you know that these Sydney Mexican maestros are going to dish up delicacies just like they’re made at home. A weekends-only special to look out for down Crown Street is Mexican Burrito Cantina’s barbacoa de borrego – slowly barbecued spiced lamb, served up in a bowl with fresh coriander, limes, an especially creamy guacamole, pico de gallo and tortillas.

Great place, great food, great service! If you like Mexican food this is the best place in Sydney. The fried Burrito is delicious. They also have few Vegan options
