Affordable and delicious tacos are the best medicine in this hidden Darlinghurst spot.
October 11, 2022
If you said Darlinghurst was hiding stand-out Mexican food behind a sandwich shop, people might not believe you. But, like a certain billionaire-turned-vigilante, at night, Mrs Palmer Sandwich dons a cape and boots to become La Farmacia, dishing out less justice and more tacos and red-hot chilli cocktails.
La Farmacia — translating to 'the pharmacy' — is about making folks feel good. There's a 16-strong margarita menu and, for the daring, the Reaper — a sip that mixes Carolina Reaper-infused tequila and doubles it down with a habanero rim.
Food-wise, there are all the regulars — like grilled corn, guac and tacos — plus ceviche, cactus salad and queso fundido (a Oaxacan cheese pot topped with grilled chorizo or mushies). On Tuesdays, all tacos are half price — that's $3, people.
