There was a seediness masked by sophistication about this place that just draws you in.
Reading through the Mexican menu I was super excited and I gotta feeling that this was going to be a good night - a good good night.
The guacamole was excellent, lemony and smoothe and a great beginning.
But then the seared tuna and octopus came out and it looked like burnt bugs on a plate. No flavour
and I was like "mmmm maybe this is a minor mishap."
The pork tacos were good, but then the prawn tacos looked a bit blue and the duck rolls were rather cakey.
My hot chocolate was lumpy and the coffee was served on a saucer with the drink split all over.
It is great that Mamastita has opened our mouths to the door of Mexican cooking but those that follow like Senoritas need to execute well. This was just not well.
Despite this, the place is full and people seemed to love it.
But for us, we were feeling it at the start but then it just went down hill from there.
And waiting for the bill and the screw ups with all that, felt like climbing Everest in thongs.
Price is around $55 each including a cocktail but no dessert.
