I do not recommend going to Sydney for the Mexican food. It has pretty much nailed every other cuisine, but in the year that I lived there, I didn't ever satisfy my South of the Border cravings. I did, however, quench my tequila thirst - and then some - thanks to this lovely gem, Cafe Pacifico. It has almost a hidden feel as it's located down one of Darlinghurst's side streets. When you get inside, you walk up this dark stairway and find yourself in a chaotically charming restaurant with sombreros, maracas and every kind of Dia de los Muertos decor you could imagine.
The bartenders know their stuff here. It was the first time I had "tasted" tequila as opposed to taking shots. They have over 100 to choose from (pictured above), some over 100 years old. We sipped on all kinds of agaves, as well as tried some inventive cocktails, including one that tasted like coffee! Delicioso, mate!
