Critic's review

Zanele Kumalo

This is not authentic Mexican but it’s certainly not Tex-Mex either. You won’t find tamales here, but that’s not the point. A group of friends who share a love of tequila and its associated cuisine bring fiesta to their offering. Start with a little plate like a taco. Soft or hard shell, I like the crunch of the latter to counter the softer fillings. There are a number, including a spicy salty tuna sashimi marinated in soy sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds, slow cooked pork, lightly battered hake, spicy cauliflower and more.

There’s ceviche, interesting salads with quinoa black beans, orange and chipotle and another pickled baby carrot and broccoli mix. If you’re going to indulge in many rounds of tequilas or margaritas than nibbles like jalapeño poppers, chargrilled corn, burritos and bigger meals – beef chilli, slow-cooked pork belly and a bowl of beans with aubergine are hearty stomach liners.

Sweeten the deal with churros and dark chocolate.

The wine menu is a fair selection of familiar names across the red, white, rosé and sparkling wines together with cold beers.

  • A slightly disappointing experience at Perron considering the hype - the nachos were flavorful but could do with more of the toppings, the sweet potato and black bean tostada lacked a Mexican flavor and the pulled pork quesadilla could do with a squeeze or 2 of lime. The tuna tostada however was delicious with fresh ingredients and a good balance of all the zingy flavor you expect from a Mexican dish.
