NEW OPENING || Fonda Hawthorn

If you're fond-a Mexican and keen to put the best fish tacos in town into your face then you might want to get on over to the gorgeous new Fonda Mexican outpost in Hawthorn.

Situated right alongside Glenferrie Station and with an impressive 'harlequin hispanic patio'-style fit-out (my words, not theirs) from architecture firm Techne, it adds a real dash of colour (plus a whole lot of fun) to the strip.

I went and checked it out on preview night for my pals at Good Food and the food was on point. Fish tacos and the pork quesadillas were standouts, as were the cocktails.
