Are You Game? Melbourne’s Most Epic Mexican Feed

By Iro Kotsimbos - 27 Feb 2015

As far as Mexican restaurants in Melbourne go, it’s fair to say that you, dear Listers, are obsessed. We only have to mention the word guacamole to whip you into a frenzy. What’s not to like though? Street corn, tacos, MARGARITAS…yep, I would worship at the Church of Mexican Restaurants every day if I could.

It’s also blatantly obvious that you, like us, love an epic feed—a food challenge, if you will. So when we heard about the Feed Me Hombre menu at CBD hotspot Touché Hombre, we knew we had to try it (call it civic service). A truly tasty, epic feed at one of the best Mexican restaurants in Melbourne? Now we’re talking!

Touché Hombre has perfected what they do over the years, serving delicious Mexican food and drink with an edge. Whether you come for lunch, dinner, or even just a snack, Touché Hombre’s eclectic space—imagine a mix of neon, rock ‘n’ roll and all things Mexican—is always pumping.

But I digress. While we love stopping by for a sneaky burrito (or two), it’s the Feed Me Hombre menu that currently has our affection.

The challenge begins with Touché Hombre’s famous street corn—perfectly charred and served with lime, pecorino and a side of mayo. Mmmmm. One more starter follows and with the menu taking a ‘chef’s selection’ approach, you could be sinking your fangs into a tuna tostada, spicy lamb ribs, skewers, Touché Fried Chicken or something else altogether.

Now that your stomach muscles are well and truly warmed up, it’s time to tackle the tacos. That’s right, multiple tacos—three to be exact. If there’s one thing we’re mad for, it’s a good taco, and with varieties such as chicken, pork belly, fish, prawn and more, you’re pretty much spoilt for choice.

Okay, let’s take a breather before dessert—after all, no good meal is complete without something sweet! Touché Hombre’s dessert menu is pretty damn spectacular, with chilli-macerated strawberries, a cookie with chocolate and peanut butter parfait, and spiced cinnamon sugar doughnuts with salted caramel and passionfruit sauces (!!!) all battling to take pride of place in your stomach. 

Once devoured, you can rest easy—your Mexican food challenge is complete!

It’s a given, though, that with all that food, you’re going to need something to wash it all down. While drinks aren’t included in the Feed Me Hombre menu, you’d be a fool to say no to Touché Hombre’s famous Margarita Del Tommy—it’s one of our faves and we have tried A LOT! There’s also a range of other delicious cocktails, beers and wines, plus top shelf tequilas and other spirits. Feel like carrying on into the night? Simply duck into Touché Hombre’s sister bar, Burroteca, next door.

The Feed Me Hombre menu at Touché Hombre really is one of those must-do food challenges in Melbourne. Where else are you going to have the chance to eat so much at one of Melbourne’s best Mexican restaurants…for only $40?!  It’s easily one of the best value offerings out there, plus a percentage of profits from each Feed Me Hombre menu ordered go towards a different local charity each month. It’s a win-win situation for all!

Admit it, Listers—you know you’re keen! If you’re game enough to take on the challenge, you can book yourselves a table online or call 03 9663 0811 and the Touché Hombre crew will sort you out. We’ll see you there—bring it on!
