34 Johnston St, Fitzroy
Nestled amongst the hustle and bustle of Brunswick St, Los Amates bursts with colour from the décor to the creative flavour concoctions. With an interior inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead and walls adorned with quirky portraits of Frida Kahlo, Los Amates has a festive atmosphere about it and a tantalizing menu to match. The authentically regional menu looks to central Mexico with a spectrum of soft tortillas, tacos and quesadillas as well as distinctive mains that include ox tongue, Yucatan-style braised pork, and a chicken mole in a smoky chilli and bitter chocolate sauce. The food is fresh, the staff is friendly and with an extensive list of Hispanic classics like tequila, margaritas and Mexican mezcales you’re in for a true Mexican experience.
Open Tuesday to Sunday 6pm till late
