We visited Touche Hombre on Exhibition street in Melbourne for the chicken margaritas but alas, they are no longer. Lisa was heartbroken.
What even is a chicken margarita you ask? Well it’s a chicken shaped ceramic jug, filled with margarita! We still had margarita but without the chicken jug, not as good obviously. Still good, but it was no chicken margarita. It did have a dehydrated lime in there though, they dehydrate over 100 limes a week – quite impressive.
The guacamole was good and the ceviche was great. I’m always confused when a Mexican restaurant can’t nail their guac. The ceviche had a touch of watermelon which added a really sweet flavour to the citrus – quite different.
We ordered a bunch of tacos from our energetic and happy waiter, the kingfish, the pork and two chicken. The waiter went out of his way to find a spicy sauce for the boys and explain to them just how hot it would be. The chicken was the best taco, although in my opinion it wasn’t that great. The kingfish wasn’t well received and the pork was considered average too by all at our table.
The banter was uncouth and hilarious, the company fantastic and the service was excellent. If I returned it would be more for the atmosphere than the food.
