Part of the shopping complex at Capital Street in Mawson Lakes, A Little Bit of Mexico is a great place to enjoy Mexican cuisine. Many of their dishes are ordered by choosing your desired dish along with a filling of your choice.

The Tinga de Pollo filling that we chose for the Burrito had succulent meat with the addition of chipotle chillies, giving it a delectable smoky taste that had a bit of spice. The inclusion of beans made the dish a bit more filling and the cheese did not taste too creamy. We also liked that the wheat flour tortilla was toasted sufficiently to give it a bit of crispiness

Though their Quesadilla had more cheese compared to the burrito, it still did not make the dish taste too creamy. For the filling, we chose Mushroom & Spinach. The generous amount of mushrooms gave the filling a delectable earthy taste. This filling also included chilli flakes for a bit of spice.

The pulled pork in the Green Salsa Pulled Pork with Rice was moist, with the tomatillo salsa providing a hint of tanginess. The rice that came with the pork was not just plain rice but had been subtly flavoured using onion and garlic. For those who want to add more flavour to the dish, they can pour the sauce that came with the dish over the pork before eating it.

To finish our meal, we ordered their Mini Churros. The churros were light and fluffy, with the crisp exterior providing a good amount of contrast. A dusting of sugar and cinnamon gave the churros the flavour you would expect and a drizzling of chocolate syrup added sweetness that was not too intense.

For something unique to drink, you can choose from various Mexican soft drinks. The Mexican cola that we chose had a more spiced flavour compared to the Coca-Cola Australians are familiar with. Its location near Foodland makes it convenient for shoppers to grab a meal before or after they have finished shopping.
