Hello Auntie Restaurant is hosting a Mexican fiesta “Los Aunties” at Marrickville every Saturday from April 2nd. Known for its new-school Vietnamese twists and unique flavour combinations, Hello Auntie is celebrating the culture behind the kitchen – fusing its traditional Vietnamese flavours with the South American heritage of its staff.
Head chef and owner Cuong Nguyen loves to celebrate different cultures and countries’ flavours drawing on inspiration from Italy, the Mediterranean and now Mexico; of course while putting his own Vietnamese spin on the dishes.
The “Los Aunties” pop-up will feature delicious tacos and cocktails that will have every Sydneysider wanting more. For $35 diners can tuck into 3 tasty tacos plus an alcoholic twist on the popular Mexican sweet rice milk drink Horchata (which can be also ordered separately for $19). The cocktail features a creamy blended mix of house-fermented rice milk, cinnamon, vodka, Licor 43 and frangelico.
Diners can choose between the meat taco trio or the pescatarian taco trio for an extra $20. The meat trio includes Chicken Adobo with shallot oil, fried shallots, coriander and onion, BBQ pork jowl with shallot oil, crispy pork lardons, onion and coriander, and Brisket with betel leaf loaf, shallot oil, roasted peanuts and fermented pineapple.
The pescatarian tacos include Barramundi with shallot oil, fried shallots, coriander and onion, Octopus with sate, shallot oil, confit garlic, roasted peanuts, coriander and onion, and Scallop with cucumber and ginger aguachille, shallot oil, fried shallots, coriander and onion. All tacos are served with pickled diakon and carrot, roasted tomato salsa and lemon on the side.
This lunch pop-up will only be around for a good time not a long time so customers are encouraged to get their bookings in quickly to try this fusion of Mexican and Vietnamese culture and flavours.
