They’ve imported a huge tortilla press all the way from Mexico.
Before the owners of Esteban Mark Crawford and Michael Fegent opened their amazing restaurant in October, they did some serious research. They travelled to Mexico and parts of the United States in pursuit of inspiration for the modern Mexican restaurant they wanted to open in Australia. Sometimes, when people think of Mexican food, what they’re actually envisioning is tex mex. However, the owners and executive chef, John Frid wanted to bring the best of authentic Mexican flavours back to Sydney. [Photo: @estebansydney on Facebook]
Moreover, they wanted to use local produce from Australia to make their food, because Australia clearly has some amazing produce. They serve foods like tostada de calabaza – a delicious, sweet, dessert make with tortillas and pumpkin. These kinds of dishes provide an unmissable experience, alongside tasty Mexican liquors.
Their mezcal gin cocktails combine a fantastic Mexican liquor made from the beautiful agave plant, with gin – very much a popular spirit right now. All in all, their mezcal and tequila selection is over 200 strong and counting. However, it’s not just the cocktails that taste delicious. The executive chef, who also designed the food at Tequila Mockingbird, cooks meat on an impressive parilla grill, searing in all of the amazing flavours.
