FRIDA'S IS THE RESTAURANT IN BRISBANE WHERE YOU CAN FIND REAL MEXICAN HOME FOOD. MADE USING A COMBINATION OF FRESH AUSSIE INGREDIENTS AND IMPORTED MEXICAN CHILLIS, OUR GOAL IS TO TASTE JUST LIKE AT GRANDMA'S. HERE YOU CAN FIND MEXICAN SEAFOOD FROM THE NORTHERN COAST OF SINALOA, STREET TACOS OF BARBACOA (PULLED BEEF) JUST LIKE IN MEXICO CITY, MOLE FROM PUEBLA, AND COCHINITA PIBIL (PULLED PORK) A MAYAN DELICACY.
Cochinita Pibil is Pulled Pork marinated in acid orange juice, annatto seeds, and other spices. It was cooked traditionally underground by our Mayan ancestors and wrapped in banana leaves. It is not spicy, however in Mexico, it's commonly garnished with "Xnipec" a Mayan salsa of red onions marinated in lime juice with habanero chili.
Our tacos are just like the ones you can find in the streets of Mexico.
Make sure to try our Barbacoa Tacos (Mexico City-style Pulled Beef), Fish Tacos (Barramundi) with Pico de Gallo and Mayo, and the Prawn Tacos, with a bed of refried beans and Chipotle cream. Add lime, salsa, cilantro, and red onion! You will love them!
Mole, from the Nahuatl word "mōlli" the language of the Aztecs (pronounced "Moe-Lay") means sauce.
It is a very old traditional sauce made with chillies, chocolate, and traditionally over 300 other spices. Surprisingly it is not very sweet or spicy, it tastes a bit smokey and is a jewel in the Central Mexican Cuisine.
