For the love of tacos
The much loved Contrabando of formerly Bent St has now reopened on Macquarie St where Aesops Greek Restaurant used to be. A first look at the fitout is looking good on the front end while renovations still to come for the back end aka toilets. To celebrate their new lease of life they're making their famous $3 Taco Tuesday a daily special for this week and next. I've picked the standard Crispy Fish and new comers of Crisp Pork Belly and Crisp Pumpkin. For only $3 I think it's a bargain for the flavour and size and makes for an quick and tasty lunch option. Service is friendly and swift on the floor just like the team over at The Wolf Bar. There's plenty of seating which will surely fill up quickly for lunches once word gets out that these guys are back in business. Chef Peter Varvaressos now has a new happy place in his brand new open kitchen. Next stop will probably be their popular Express Set Menu Lunch which is usually just $20 or hitting their tempting food truck menu of loaded fries, crispy chicken skins, cheeseburger chimichangas, ocean trout ceviche and duck nachos.
