I’ll admit, ever since a first (and hopefully last) visit to Taco Bill a long time ago, I approach ‘cheap Mexican’ food with caution; however Trippy Taco has restored my faith.
Trippy Taco is a popular Vegetarian eatery in Gertrude Street Fitzroy offering Mexican style street food that is cheap and delicious. It’s a small, busy and casual spot that welcomes patrons dining-in as well as takeaway orders. If you are dining in, you order at the counter then help yourself to water, cutlery and the range of hot sauces available for the more daring at the self service area. Staff sometimes don’t seem too focused on going out of their way to provide a high customer service experience but food arrives very quickly and considering it’s a Vegetarian restaurant, the menu is extensive and the meals are fresh and filling. They also have a variety of Mexican beers available, in addition to Sangrias and Margaritas.
I really enjoyed the Tofu Asada Burrito (flour tortilla wrap filled with spicy chargilled tofu, mozzarella, goat’s cheese, salad, salsa, avacado and fresh lime) and the Special Quesadilla (flour tortilla with melted goat’s cheese, black beans, tasty cheese, salsa and avacado), finding them both to be flavoursome mixtures of tasty ingredients.
Trippy Taco is not to be compared with the dining experience or ambience you would find at Mexican restaurants like Fonda, Newmarket Hotel, Mamasita or Touche Hombre, however Trippy Taco is an easy choice if you are after a quick, cheap and hearty meal, especially if you are nearby on Smith Street or Brunswick Street.
