RADIO MEXICO
Melbourne, VIC

THIS RESTAURANT DOES NOT ACCEPT BOOKINGS

Melbourne's Carlisle Street is now home to the hip and atmospheric taqueria Radio Mexico, whose personality fills the gap between a street-style taco truck and a classy CBD restaurant. Serving up the classic comida Mexicana, which we have come to know and love, patrons can expect tantalising tacos, generous-sized pinchos, palate-pleasing ceviche and more. So kick back at the bar with a Mexican lager or sit out on the wooden deck with an agave tequila and let the fiesta begin.

Nothing will stop Radio Mexico fans from crowding in and if you, too, can bear the wait, then you're in for a pleasant surprise. Set on a prime corner location on Carlisle Street, this bayside taqueria and bar has a laid-back beachy vibe thanks to an informal fit out and a casual all-day eating approach.

Just like out of a vintage postcards from Baja, streamers hang from worn-wooden tables and chilled-out beats croon over the speakers. The restaurant is divided into an indoor area and semi-outdoor space but, in true Melbourne style, there's a fireplace to warm up the place and a great mural painted on the wall.

When you finally take a seat, the menu may be simple but it's full of promise. Start with totopos, classic corn chips, arriving with a selection of homemade salsas, or opt for the ones topped with crabmeat slaw. It doesn't take long to realise that the star of Radio Mexico is the humble taco, given a contemporary spin with fillings like pulled-pork and pineapple; BBQ Moreton bay bug and slaw; or slow roasted lamb. The tacos are small enough to order a selection to share, but we recommend a couple of sides including roasted pumpkin salad, goat cheese and quinoa salad or maybe a generous glass of rockling, avocado and grapefruit ceviche. If you need a drink, the boys at the bar mix a great margarita, or try Radio Mexico's take on the infamous espresso martini - it's shaken up with tequila here.

Slip in early to avoid the queues at Radio Mexico and get carried away in the festive beat and tasty, Mexican dishes.

Radio Mexico in St Kilda is always pumping and a great place to go for some great food and beautiful cocktails. But one of the main reasons I keep coming bake to this place is the service. Fun, attentive staff, always there when you need that next margarita!
