Forget stodgy Tex-Mex restaurants - South Yarra's refreshingly vibrant Maya Bar serves up great, tasty home style Mexican food without a re-fried bean in sight. Head along for corn chips, salsa, quesadillas, fajitas and one or two of the 50 available tequilas. The food here is for sharing, but if you really want to go it alone with your plate, you can always order a burrito - ask for one with the house made hot sauce!

Near the corner of Punt Road, a short walk from Toorak train station.

This great little bar and restaurant slipped unassumingly onto the restaurant scene in early 2009 and has been attracting a growing number of fans to its fresh, home style Mexican food and well stocked tequila bar. The decor is bright and breezy, colourful and cool without feeling slavishly constructed. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and will install you comfortably in your seat, supply you liberally with corn chips and fresh salsa and help guide you through a selection of quesadillas, fajitas and other Mexican specialities. The back bar features a retractable roof making it ideal for functions all year round, while half a dozen Mexican beers and more than 50 tequilas make for stylish sipping while you sample some tasty fare from the kitchen.

For something different try the roasted duck quesadilla with hoi sin sauce, pan fried vegetables and cucumber chutney. Other fillings include king prawns with kaffir lime, chilli herb butter, peppers, fennel and Spanish onions or go for the classic beef or chorizo. If you can’t choose between the prawn and chorizo skewers, Creole calamari, ceviche bruschetta or the jalapeno poppers, there’s always the tasting plate to make the decision easier. Finish with soppapillas – sweet, cinnamon-coated tortillas stacked with chilli ice cream and almonds and drizzled with caramel sauce – or a spiced Diablito coffee with orange zest, agave nectar, cloves and star anise with butterscotch and cinnamon cream.
