2. Chula

 Anyone who has ever travelled to Mexico will know that Australia gets Mexican food wrong. So very, very wrong. Until now. So do yourself a f(l)avour and make like Speedy Gonzales to new Potts Point restaurant, Chula. The restaurant’s food offering was created by expat chef Alvaro Valenzuela, who moved to Sydney from Mexico City to showcase the fresher, more vibrant side of his native cuisine.    Location:  Shop 7, 33 Bayswater Rd, Potts Point

3. Mejico

 Guacamole crushed at your table, honey-smoked brisket tacos and corn lollipops – these are just the beginning at Mejico, which has been supplying the city of Sydney with tacos and tequila since 2013. It’s the restaurant’s market-to-table ethos that sets it apart. There’s also an extensive share-menu that's about half vegetarian.   Location:  105 Pitt Street, CBD
