Partying on a Monday night is not a general occurrence in my life, but when someone decides to plan something I am more then happy to get out and about. It’s a nice way to welcome the week and makes the thought of four more days till the weekend that little bit more bearable. The reason for our outing was to celebrate Aimee’s birthday, a table was booked at Mejico on Pitt Street and the fun begun.

Whilst we wait for the rest of our table to rock up, we order the Market Fresh Guacamole. They bring out each of the ingredients and then prepare it at the table in a mortar and pestle.

The pork has been smoked for 20 hours which makes it so full of flavour.

Mejico - Sydney CBD - My Kiki Cake - Sydney Food Blog - Ceviche & Tacos

I’m having a slight Ceviche craze so it was imperative that we order some of the Hiramasa Kingfish with Ruby Grapefruit, Watermelon, Pepitas, Raddish and Charred Chilli Flakes.

The fish is delicate with random bursts of heat from the chilli.

Meat lovers time. I love how all my friends pretty much eat anything, have no weird food allergies and appreciate food as much as I do. We order the Glazed Pork Ribs in a Chipotle Chilli Marinade, Blackened Corn and Polenta Chips on the side.

What better way to finish off a night of celebrations then with some more Tequila! We all order something different from the menu, and I go with the Cafe Patron to have a little taste test after hearing good things. Loved the coffee flavour but it was mighty strong. I’ll save it for an espresso martini next time.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AIMEE =)
