Beach Burrito, Newtown -- or -- I know what you're doing this Summer
I didn't realise this was a chain restaurant until I arrived. My natural response was disdain. But why? It's not a multinational corporation. Just successful. And even if it was an imported food chain -- say, American -- does that make it bad? Aren't they closer to Mexico anyway?
Prejudice aside, it was a different vibe to other places in Newtown. Definitely going for the laid-back, 'street' ambience. But with a strong Mexican flavour. (Which is more than can be said for the chips & salsa.)
Further up King St you'll find (chain) Guzman y Gomez, and right up the city end is Izote. Mad Mex is opening soon up that end as well. Also Jester Seeds. And I hear there is another new Mexican place in Enmore?
[And, it seems, a few more on Enmore Rd: Jalapeno Tex-Mex; and El Cuervo.]
Mexican: the new Thai?
