Mamacita, a new concept in Mexican cuisine and drink, has opened at TRYP by Wyndham on Pulteney Street, setting itself up to become a hot new destination for foodies and bar goers.
If you’re a tequila afficionado its where you’ll want to be, with shelves devoted to a collection of more than 50 tequilas (and climbing).
Guests can choose from an enviable range of margaritas – or to build their own – and to heat their meal with chilli sauces featured on a scale ranging from mild to eye-wateringly hot, one of which requires a waiver to taste.
Mexican classics including delicious tacos, quesadillas, nachos, chipotle marinated chicken, chicken wings and pork ribs all feature on the menu, alongside more adventurous choices for the gastronome: carne asada with 12-hour slow roasted and marinated scotch fillet, cured king fish in lemon and lime, and yuca fries made from the yuca root, commonly found in South America and the Pacific.
The mouthwatering menu has been created by Director of Food and Beverage, Valentin Corchado, a food and beverage leader with extensive experience across Europe, Asia and the South Pacific, and Chef Somerled Mackay, who lived in South America for several years before settling in Adelaide.
“The team at Mamacita has done extensive research into what makes the most flavoursome food, picked out some truly incredible and distinctive tequilas, and experimented with the best food and drink combinations to develop culinary itineraries capable of taking guests on a journey,” says Chef Corchado.
“Mamacita is set to bring some spice to the Mexican scene in Adelaide and we know guests will be impressed”.
Alongside the plentiful tequilas, Mamacita offers mezcals, which feature a scrumptious smokiness developed during the distillation process.
The Mamacita bar is capable of hosting events for up to 120 people and features private areas ideal for smaller groups.
Breakfast and lunch feature a smaller menu and are served inside TRYP at the ground floor, with dinner served from the restaurant and bar on the first level of the hotel.
