Mad Mex: My new fave fast food joint


After hearing rave reviews about Mad Mex in Sydney, I was excited to finally head to their first Melbourne store on Chapel St...

And to see in person their much-talked about Corona Chandelier - a chandelier made up of empty Corona bottles...

Mad Mex allows you to build your meal as you go along. You start by picking a burrito or taco, then you choose the meat, veggies, sauces and other extras.

Above is a terrible photo of three very yummy crispy tacos:
1) Chicken seasoned with their very own Chipotle Adobo Marinade
2) Slow roasted shredded pork traditional style, with garlic, onion, lime & cumin
3) Freshly grilled to medium steak marinated in citrus, garlic & spices

All topped with fresh lettuce, Chilli Corn Salsa (fresh corn, pineapple onion, coriander & jalapeños) and cheese.

Rest assured, Mad Mex makes tacos better than I take photos.

A burrito made up of spicy slow roasted beef with robust Chipotle, garlic, cumin & tomatillo, Mexican rice, cheese, lettuce & sour cream.

If you are in Melbourne, visit Mad Mex at 131 Chapel Street, Prahran. Open daily from 11am. Sydneysiders will find their local Mad Mex in Blacktown, Castle-Hill, Macquarie Centre, Tuggerah, Circular Quay and Darlinghurst.
