I am a huge fan of Mexican food but I am usually disappointed whenever I go to a Mexican restaurant.
I have been to my fair share of Mexican eateries and often find them over priced, miserly with their portions and lacking in ambiance.
Until I discovered the Flying Fajita Sistas in Glebe, NSW.
I can’t even remember how I found it, a friend I think and I remember taking my playgroup mums there for our end of year party.
Needless to say it was a huge success and I have been back many times over the years.
It is a stand-out establishment for many reasons. It has a wonderful ambiance. The waitresses wear pretty, Mexican tunics and the decor is typically colourful and cheery but not in any way cheesy or contrived.
I just get the sense that when I enter this place, it is run with love and care and this makes all the difference.
Of course the food is excellent, consistently so. Every time I go I get the same quality food and every time I enjoy it with relish.
Stand-out choices on the menu are anything containing the Achiote pulled pork. It is so tasty and succulent….
The Queso fundido dip of charred tomato and ancho chile salsa melted with cheese is amazing.
The corn chips are specially made and super crunchy and they go so well with all the dips.
All of the dishes are generous portions and priced reasonably.
But wait there’s more…they serve THE best margaritas, here’s a taste;
The Sistas – Traditional margarita; house tequila, triple sec, lime juice shaken or frozen
The Classic – Sour Margarita with 1800 Blanco Tequila, shaken only
Top Shelf – Patron Silver Tequila, Patron Citronage, Fresh Lime, a bit of Lemon and some sweetness
And the desserts are also worth trying, if you can fit them in.
I am terribly sad that I won’t be visiting The Flying Fajita Sistas any time soon… this is definitely something I miss about Sydney.
