World Taco Day has arrived and never have our taste buds and stomachs been quite so excited.

The humble taco is one that shines bright in the eyes of anyone who, basically, enjoys food.
Never have we ever met anyone that doesn’t enjoy a decent taco… Think about it – have you?
In honour of the great day and the even greater Mexican delicacy, we’ve compiled a list of our top Sydney taco-serving-hot-spots.


You knew it was coming. Hunter and Bligh is no stranger to calling favourites and yes, SoCal is one of our all time favourite locations. This World Taco Day SoCal is celebrating all day and all night with an 8-course taco degustation. The $40pp feast includes 8 tacos and your choice of Margarita. Life truly is better with tacos & tequila…

The Butler

To celebrate the happy day, The Butler in Potts Point is putting on a ‘lil special somethin’ somethin’. The team are offering two handmade tacos made lovingly by Head Chef Amber Doig, plus a beautiful looking Tommy’s Margarita for $22pp. The special is also available tomorrow, the more tacos the merrier we suppose…

123 Victoria St, Potts Point 22pp Tommy's Margarita


Mejico knows how to Mexico. On a daily basis they offer a minimum of four taco variations, all of which we have tried (several times for good measure) and all of which, we highly recommend. If you’re around the Sydney CBD this evening, kick on down to Pitt St and treat yourself.

105 Pitt St, Sydney CBD 11+ Jalapeno Margarita

El Camino Cantina

El Camino’s appearance surprises no one. The go-to Mexican for Sydney-siders, El Camino is an evening of guarenteed great food, cocktails the size of your head and a groovy tune or two. This World Taco Day El Camino is offering $2 Tacos and $5 Mexican Beer until late!

18 Argyle St, The Rocks 2 for Tacos Strawberry Margarita

Chica Bonita

The tiny hole-in-the-wall joint, lovingly praised by Sydney folk as some of the best Mexican in town deserves a prized position on this list. Make the most of your World Taco Day and head on down to Manly. Order yourself way too many tacos, carne fries and if you feel like a bit more fun, order a Mega Lagerita (you probably won’t thank us tomorrow morning…)

Royal Hotel Paddington

It would be criminal to not venture to an all-you-can-eat fiesta, put on by the culinary geniuses at the Royal Hotel Paddington. For $20pp, you and your amigos will score an endless supply of tacos – we’re talking achiote chicken and cheese creme, slow cooked pork and jalapeno and grilled barramundi. PLUS $10 Chilli Margaritas… we might actually stop right there and BRB.

Five Ways 237 Glenmore Road, Paddington 20pp $10 Chilli Margarita


Contrabando is widely known by Sydney folk as the well-loved ‘Mexican-but not Mexican’. Contrabando’s goal is to pay homage to the street vendors of Southern California. Because too much is never enough, Contrabando offers 8 daily tacos and for good measure, all-you-can-eat-tacos for $25pp.

131 Macquarie St, Sydney 6+ Spiced Blood Orange Margarita

El Loco

If your World Taco Day celebrations need a decent dancefloor and some seriously good tunes, how about El Loco? Merivale’s wildly popular Mexican joint can be found either in the heart of the CBD or Surry Hills. Think 3 tacos for $20, the choice of over 7 taco variations and enough Mexi-Burgers to make an amigo dance!

Slip Inn, Sussex St or The Excelsior, Surry Hills 7+ Frozen Margarita: Tequila Pash

Bar Patron

How could we possibly make Mexi list and not mention our one true love. Bar Patron is hands down, the location that has it all. The food, the view and most importantly – the drinks. Diners have 6 gourmet tacos to choose from, of which we recommend all. Spice up the dining experience (because, why not?) and try their Chipotle Margarita. You know where we’ll be.
