Restaurant Review: Mexican Society

Mexican Society
140 Gouger Street

Hi guys! When I got an offer to try out Mexican Society recently I jumped at the chance, knowing how delicious their food is. I'd chosen this restaurant for my Birthday celebration dinner in September, and thought what a great opportunity to return and enjoy it once again!

Instead of drinking alcohol, this time we opted for Mocktails, which is unheard of for me, but I thought what the heck when hubby said he was getting a Mocktail, and ordered one as well. He had the Mr Mojo which contains watermelon, coconut water, fresh lime and mint. This was super fresh and minty and really refreshing. I had the Cancun Colada (containing mango, passionfruit, lime and coconut cream) which was basically like a delicious tropical fruit smoothie. This one is pictured above.

I absolutely love the interior of Mexican Society. It's really hip and fun, and where we've been seated twice now, in the window seats along the edge is super comfy with chairs one side and bench seating on the opposite side with a ton of lovely cushions to relax on. One thing though, the lighting is quite dim which makes for a romantic atmosphere, but taking photos can be a challenge. This is only really a food blogger/Instagrammer issue and most people wouldn't even care! When we first arrived the natural lighting was good but by the time our dishes arrived I used the empty table next to us to photograph the food, as it was more lit up!

Food-wise, we ordered two mains. Hubby had Capsicum Exquisito, which is a capsicum stuffed with black Angus scotch fillet, cactus, avocado-tomatillo sauce, with potato chips, cheese and cilantro. I didn't try his dish because I was too caught up in mine, but he said it was really good. I ordered the Chilli Morita Pork Ribs (slow cooked Barossa ribs, morita BBQ sauce, watermelon, coriander, fennel and lime). These ribs were amazing! The meat was fall-off-the-bone tender and melted in my mouth, and the sauce was absolutely delicious. The watermelon salad perfectly accompanied the meat, bringing little bursts of freshness. I loved this dish, it was so impressive!

We will definitely be returning to Mexican Society for more delicious dishes and good times!

Hot Tip: It's a short walk from Mexican Society to dessert haven Shibui Dessert Bar, if you want to try their infamous desserts afterwards!

  1. Another wonderful post Di - it's amazing that you got to return to a restaurant you already know and love! Although the potato chips look tempting, I'd probably go for your choice myself as, quite frankly, I can't get enough of those ribs! Great hot tip as well - I'm a complete sweet-toothed monster so dessert is a must! x
