The Mexican wave is still exhibiting its strong tidal force in Adelaide, and it looks like it won't be going anywhere any time soon. Mexican joints are popping around the city catering for locals' need for the alluring spice and colourful affair that is the cuisine of Mexico.
United Latino Cocina, or also known as ULC, is an eatery that embodies everything that is true, fresh and delicious about Mexican food. It's a medium sized restaurant down on Francis Street, a little alleyway street just off Rundle Mall. The decor gives off a welcoming vibe, which is further complemented by its warm and friendly staff. The huge steel themed open kitchen is pretty darn impressive too, adding a whole new lively element to dining. Tick, tick, and tick for ambience, decor and service. We were already sold.
Nachos, quesilidsas, tacos, tostadas, they got all your favourite Mexican food and more. The portions are relatively generous and it's all quite well priced with most items hovering around the $10-20 mark. The food itself is ultra earthy in flavours, quality of ingredients used is sky high in superiority and the bottles of habanero sauce on all the tables are aplenty (perfect for us lovers of all things spicy). We cannot wait to go back and steadily (you have to pace yourself) try out the rest of the fantastic dishes on their menu.
