Hosted at the newly renovated Carbón restaurant in Bondi, the Jarritos Australian launch was the most fun I have had in so long. Was nice to have a sense of normality during such a strange time in the world. The aesthetic of Carbón is like an authentic Mexican cantina/saloon with a modern twist, the food is amazing. I'm probably biased as Mexican is one of my favourite cuisines, but the market fish and tacos were my favourites, I'm 100% heading down again for Taco Tuesday's.
The food menu included:
- guacamole with pomegranate, corn chips and chilli oil
- sardine tostadas
- a selection of tacos
- whole market fish
- green beans with smoked chilli oil, lime and confit garlic
- corn esquites
- brussel sprouts
- queso fresco cheesecake with guava and cinnamon buñuelos.
The cocktail I chose for the night was the Paloma, made with Jarritos grapefruit flavoured Mexican soda (I definitely will be making these at home).
To keep with the authentic Mexican feel there was also an amazing mariachi singer serenading us girls and a hairstylist creating Mexican style braids. The atmosphere was so electric and I was definitely enjoying my guava Jarrito soda after a little too much tequila.
Jarritos soda flavours:
- guava (personal favourite)
- fruit punch
- mexican cola
A big thank-you to Tropicool for organising such an awesome and fun event for the launch of Jarritos Australia.
