Mexican Independence Day is coming up and to celebrate, Fitzroy's Hecho en Mexico has teamed up with 400 Conejos Mezcal to host a one-night-only Mezcal Fiesta on Thursday, September 14.
The night will feature roving entertainment and a five-course dinner curated by Masterchef's Theo Loizou, who will be putting his own spin on classic Mexican dishes.
A few of the dishes guests can look forward to include grilled octopus tacos with spicy onion salsa, lamb with mezcal glaze and a bread-and-butter pudding taco with mezcal caramel. Not to worry if meat isn't your thing as there'll be vego options too.
Each dish will be paired with a bespoke mezcalita made with 400 Conejos, with flavours including, chilli mango, summer passion and an oaxaca old fashioned. Oh, and everyone will also be treated to a neat serve of 400 Conejos Espadín Mezcal on arrival, to really kick the party off.
"I love that street food brings you on a journey. It's the heartbeat of any city," says Loizou.
"One thing I love as much as street food is mezcal. I love the smokiness mezcal has and the smoothness that you don't get with tequila. The dishes I've chosen play well with mezcal and the unique cocktails, while also staying true to my cooking style, mixed with the flavours and methods of Mexican cuisine."
