Fiesta in Toorak

My friend and I had been craving Mexican food for a while and after looking around for the ideal place we came across Fiesta in Toorak. This place was an absolute treat! When we first arrived around 4.45pm there were people already waiting outside on the tables for the restaurant to open, this was a promising sign that the food here was good and did did not disappoint.

My first impression of the inside was that the decoration could do with a bit of updating and from the photos around the restaurant they were very proud that tennis hero Leyton Hewitt and his wife Bec ate at the restaurant and they weren't only the famous people, Andy Murray and Andre Agassi had both eaten here. They even named some dishes after Hewitt and Agassi.

The service was good throughout the meal, we first ordered two glasses of sangria, which were very fruity and flavoursome. I loved the cinnamon stick left in the glass, I've been to Spain countless times and never have they left the cinnamon. I loved the aftertaste it left in my mouth, it wasn't too over powering. Great touch!

The main I ordered was Tostada Supreme, which was a tortilla covered with frijole, beef, onion, lettuce, cheese, chili sauce, guacamole served with a mango salsa, rice and a crispy tortilla. The whole dish was very filling and tasty. Everything went well together and I liked the crispy tortilla. it was great to dip in the guacamole. The negative was that I thought there was a bit too much frijole, which made the meal quite heavy and filled me up quickly and the mango salsa was still frozen. Nonetheless i enjoyed the meal I would definitely like to come here again and try another dish.
