Our Hogmanay dinner at Port of Mexico was a delicious end to our time on the Great Ocean Road. On one of the busiest nights of the year, as they don’t take bookings, they managed to accommodate us with no problem.
A local family run business, Port of Mexico pride themselves on their good customer service and it shows. We ordered the charred street corn – fresh cheese, chipotle mayo & lime, and the hand cut corn chips with guacamole complete with two coronas and lime to start.
However, our mains (a pulled beef burrito type bowl complete with jalapeños, guacamole, red cabbage, black beans, chipotle mayo and tortilla chips and chorizo, caramelised onion, mushrooms and cheese quesadillas topped with red cabbage and corn salsa) arrived before our starters. The staff member that we spoke to was very helpful though, and offered drinks on the house for the mix-up which was really nice of him.
Port of Mexico have just celebrated their 1st Birthday in January. The mains we ordered seem slightly different to what they have on their menu now and it may be that they’ve updated it since we were there in December. Nevertheless, their menu sounds very tantalising and my only regret is that I will probably never make it back to Port Fairy for more of the mouth-watering Mexican flavours that Port Mexico have to offer.
Port of Mexico’s murals are pretty cool
