On Melbourne Road in Adelaide, Zapata Mexican Restaurant was the first south-of-the-border joint in the city – they opened back in 1975 – and their take on Mexican food and drink is an enduring local favourite. North Adelaide locals come for the cocktails, and the more adventurous try the Brave Bull, made with tequila and Patron, or choose from the margarita bar, where options come shaken or frozen and in shots, glasses or full pitchers. Salud!
