Missy Foxall – Mona Vale – Sydney

by Suha on July 16, 2011

 

We definitely missed having good Mexican restaurants in Sydney and suddenly quite a few have come up to fill the gap. Missy Foxall is one of them up on the northern beaches in Mona Vale. I first read about it in an article that talked about where chefs eat on their day off and this one is where Matt Kemp from Restaurant Balzac frequents. A very ranch looking décor with a warm fun atmosphere to it – we definitely enjoyed the evening and would come back. Good Missy cocktails including the traditional Margaritas and sangria and a tequilla menu too. What got us there were the LA style street tacos of pork belly and kimchee. They were good and so were the duck ones. Would love to go back and try some of the other things on the menu….
