Right on Lonsdale Street in the city centre, you can find a little Mexico in Melbourne in the form of Touche Hombre, a taco, tostada and tequila joint with a growing reputation. Mexican food is a perennial foodie favourite, providing as it does a combination of spice, fresh ingredients and great drinks accompaniments, so it comes as no surprise that the Melbourne public enjoy Touche Hombre as much as they do.
Touche Hombre is a restaurant with a reputation for fresh flavours, spice and superb drinks. At their restaurant on Lonsdale Street in the city centre, the world of Mexican food comes to Melbourne, with a menu that is not over-complicated in its survey of the great dishes available in America’s Beard, while not missing out on any favourites. Pop in for a taco or a tostadito to discover the best that Mexican food has to offer, and don’t forget to stop for a tequila while you are there.
There is more to Touche Hombre, though, than just the food. The tacos will get you through the door – and trust us, they’re great – but what will keep you at this Lonsdale Street joint is the drinks. Tequila is a favourite, as is the Michelada, a cocktail that, like a slow Sunday afternoon hangover, hits somewhere between a Bloody Mary and a cold pint of lager. If you’re a regular reveller in Melbourne city centre, you would also do well to keep an eye out for their themed evenings: Day of the Dead is a huge thing here, as is Halloween, but do make sure to book a table, as it can fill up quickly.
Waiters were helpful and food was good! Haven't been here in ages and it's still as good as last time. The lunch menu was good value as well!
Very cool venue, great atmosphere! Staff was very attentive & helpful - food was very good! Good spot for a drink two as well! Extensive tequila menu
The service was great from when we walked in to when we left, the restaurant wasn't overly busy which was good and the food was top notch!
