Mid-week Mexican madness
It seems that $1 snacks are all the rage at Sydney bars right now. Last week, The Morrison announced a weekly $1 oyster happy hour, and now Chimmi's of Bondi Junction is offering $1 tacos every Wednesday night.
The 'mid-week madness', which kicked off on October 2, enables you to buy up to three $1 tacos, for every beverage purchased. You're even invited to dress for the occasion: 'Bring your mates, wear a fake moustache, settle in with a salty donkey cocktail and munch your night away.'
Tacos are available in the classic styles, but the menu is by no means limited to convention. Specials include chipotle chicken; pickled pepper and radish; slow cooked beef briskit, mole negra and avocado; and pulled pork shoulder, chilli and coriander. Plus, you can choose a drink to match your favourite flavour, with happy hour happening every day between 5pm and 7pm.
Chimmi's is a South American-style bar, 'where the only house rules are enjoying great food, rum, cigars and dancing'. Open Tuesday-Sunday, from 5pm until late, it offers an extensive drinks menu, featuring over 100 varieties of rum and cocktails with names like 'Salty Donkey', 'Conquistador Julep' and 'Missionary's Downfall'.
