After a successful four weeks of teasing Sydneysiders with its takeaway tacos, Tequila Daisy officially opened its doors on Thursday, 21st October.
Located harbourside at Barangaroo, Tequila Daisy is the newest venture by husband and wife duo Rebecca Lines and Hamish Ingham, replacing the former Banksii Vermouth Bar & Bistro.
Designed by Luchetti Krelle, the waterfront space has been transformed into a bright and bustling 200-seat eatery that is primed for good times. With colourful tones of red, yellow and blue, the extensive outdoor terrace exudes a vibe of chilled poolside meets Mexican fiesta, with its bright window decals, pastel blue picnic tables and vibrant yellow umbrellas and chairs.
Inside, you’ll find a long walk-up bar with accents of blue and white daisy tiles that displays an extensive selection of mezcal and tequila. Created by co-owner and award-winning Sommelier Rebecca Lines, the drink list features more than 100 tequila and mezcals available by the glass; cocktails, including the namesake Tequila Daisy; and a selection of beer and wine to suit all tastes.
“We’ve created a long drinks list that will work regardless of if you’re enjoying a quick beer or settling in for an afternoon of margaritas,” says Lines. “We’ve really seen Barangaroo’s clientele evolve over the last few years so we wanted to mix things up and have some fun with a new concept that would work for everyone!”
Designed by Executive Chef Hamish Ingham, Tequila Daisy’s new menu takes a fresh Australian twist on the diverse cuisine that hails from Mexico. Each dish is jam-packed with colourful, rich flavours from the region, lightened by the duo’s fresh approach to food and drink and deep respect for Australia’s best produce. Divided into entradas, a selection of tacos, grande dishes and sides, diners can start with a beef cheek empanada with black bean sour cream and kingfish tostadas before indulging in a share-style BBQ achiote spatchcock and spicy chilli spanner crab a la diabla. For the sweet tooth, desserts include the Daisy Pinata, a playful dish of chocolate, dulce de leche and raspberry sorbet that you crack open to reveal sprinkles of candy, as well as the ever-popular classic churros with chilli–chocolate sauce.
“We’re excited to be able to officially welcome diners into the venue to enjoy the full terrace and bar dining experience,” adds Ingham. “Our Bar Taqueria takeaway was a great way to introduce Tequila Daisy to Sydney, but the full experience is all about sitting around a table with friends and feasting on fresh Mexican flavours with a cocktail in hand.”
Diners can also expect an array of fun daily specials, from $14 Margarita Mondays, $6 Taco Tuesdays, a daily happy hour (or La Hora Feliz!), boozy bottomless lunches every weekend and a hospo high five – a 10% discount all day, every day to give back to those in the hospitality industry after what has been a challenging 18 months.
For those looking for a quick fix or grabbing a bite to eat at the Barangaroo foreshore, Tequila Daisy continues to serve takeaway tacos and drinks from its Bar Taqueria.
