Flying Fajita Sistas Mexican Kitchen
Who’s the cook/bartender?
Joe Slakey – chef/owner
Kylie Sinclair-O’Keefe of K.S.I.D. designed the interior décor and selected exterior colours. Southern Design provided all graphic design elements including the wallflowers. Local mural artist Roger Robinson painted our Flying Fajita Sistas mural and the wallflowers.
Diners can expect to sample fresh tortillas, bright, rich sauces and pickles, tender cactus pads, fresh soft shell crab, grilled salmon, achiote pulled pork, ropa vieja, plus all the usual Mexican suspects.
Something to start with:
Duck confit sopes for two people: two crispy fried corn masa boats, topped with succulent confit duck legs, charred tomato salsa, and queso fresco. Amazing.
The main course:
Our pork belly tacos [above] will keep you coming back for more. Crispy pork belly, black beans, salsa almendrado and queso fresco on fresh white corn tortillas.
Room for dessert?
Banana chimichanga: a flour tortilla wrapped around banana and chocolate then fried crispy, served with caramel and cinnamon anglaise and fresh cream. Designed to be shared.
Care for a drink?
The drinks menu is a rich array of craft cocktails, quality Mexican and Australian craft beers, and we feature weekly cocktail specials with a rotating weekly sangria special. This week we have sparkling hibiscus sangria and The Strawberry Bandit [below], a spicy jalapeño margarita with fresh muddled strawberries.
The vibe from the speakers is upbeat and current. To celebrate the long break over Easter during the four-day Coloursound festival, we will be featuring a dozen local bands live in the main dining room. Checkout the Coloursound lineup for details.
