What a year it has been, amigos! Over the past 12 months we’ve opened more restaurants across Australia, brought Spicy Yucatan Chicken from Mexican cookbooks to Aussie plates, partnered with Smiths for the best hot sauce potato chip you’ve ever tasted, and sold a record number of Big Burritos to very hungry daredevils.
This week we hosted the annual Mad Mex Golden Burrito Awards to celebrate everything you love about Mad Mex, our passion for Mexican cuisine, and the qualities that helps our business to stand apart.
Mad Mex has always been more than just the best Mexican restaurant in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, and wherever else we show up. It’s a place where flavour takes centre stage, and where the most amazing guac flows like a river. But what truly sets Mad Mex apart are the amazing people who bring the fiesta to life every single day.
So, without further ado, let’s dive into the heart and soul of Mad Mex – our incredible winners!
