Brenda: I thought I knew Mexican food all this time – but oh how very wrong I was! Dos Senoritas is always the restaurant that is brought up in any conversation about Mexican food. It is the first and ‘the only authentic Mexican food in Sydney’ according to their website. Head chef and owner Domingo Medina, a real Guadalajaran chef who uses authentic Guadalajaran chillis and spices in his dishes. When they opened it was a tiny family business but as their business grew so did their restaurant. When the real estate next door closed down, they extended the restaurant – the real estate front display still remains.
Complementary tortilla chips with salsa which is served almost immediately after we were seated. The tortilla chips are freshly made and the salsa gives a good punch of chili.
We started with the Chicken Quesadilla – Jack and cheddar cheese served with guacamole, sour cream and pico ($15). The portion size was perfect for the four of us, each portion had a good amount of filling. The soft shreds of chicken was an indicator of the great food to come.
Tex Mex Taco (crispy taco shell) with charbrolied chicken, marinated stew and seasoned ground beef ($25). You get a choice of three taco fillings with rice & beans, guacamole, sour cream, pico and coriander, served with lime. The taco shell is the winner of this dish. It isn’t like the taco shells that you find at the supermarkets, this is a real tortilla that has been deep fried.
Chile Verde Burro – green chile pork, rice, jack and cheddar cheese topped with green chill sauce and sour cream ($25). This is their classic burrito filled generously with chunks of pork.
Supercheesygooeychimichanga – pork chile verde, jack and cheddar cheese stuffed into a flour deep fried topped with jalapeño cream cheese and jack cheddar cheese ($27). This deep fried goodness takes the Chile Verde Burro to the next level.
Enchilada – shredded chicken served with green chile sauce, cheese and sour cream ($23). The enchiladas have a choice between ground beef, pork, shredded chicken and beef.
We left the restaurant with our bellies full! The mains were filling and the sides were even more generous. A note to our readers, be prepared!
