On the balmy night of February 9th, our Melbourne local stars were treated to a very special Mexican fiesta in the Mexican-styled courtyard of the lively Maya Tequilla Bar & Grill, South Yarra.
Amid the nation-wide explosion of restaurants and food trucks offering Mexican food to the masses, Maya Tequilla Bar & Grill on Toorak Road, South Yarra has set the benchmark for authentic Latin cuisine in a crowded market. Renowned for their flavourful dishes that are full of colour, the local stars were spoiled for choice with an array of mouth-watering traditional Mexican dishes to choose from, including melt-in-your-mouth meat quesadillas, traditional burritos and the most beautiful chili chocolate mousse that really had our local stars’ tastebuds dancing (doing the salsa…obviously).
To add to the Mexican festivities throughout the night, our local stars were treated to a cocktail making class between meal courses. Finding the inner bartender within all of us, the challenge was on to make the best espresso cocktail and classic mojito. After much trial and error (and many sips of attempted cocktail creations) our local stars finished the night completely satisfied (some would say, in a food coma) and with a newfound knowledge of how to make the ultimate cocktail in preparation for their next night out.
It was great to see our local stars bonding over the cocktail class learning experience (and the few unfortunate tequila spillages along the way). If you would like to join us on our next amazing Local Stars experience, find out more here.
