South of the Wall

Offering a fresh, fun and a little bit cheeky vibe, newly opened Mexican cantina South of the Wall in Richmond forgets about constraining itself when it comes to the happy hour - offering ridiculous cheap Margaritas what feels like all day long.  With the type of service you'd expect to receive from a good friend, and a menu that's filled with all of your Mexican favourites, its not hard to quickly discover that you've made the right choice walking through South of the Wall's doors.  And don't worry if you haven't caught on to the South of the Wall reference by the time of arrival, it will soon become clear on spotting the giant Donald Trump mural on the wall. 

Offering what's potentially the best quesadilla going around town,  the chicken quesadilla stuffed with jalapenos and queso, and served with an incredibly generous amount of sour cream, is not to be missed.

The nachos, however, could have done with a lot more layering, with the cheese (which had turned into a clump of clag) and the meat just slumped on the top. However, layering aside, the meat was still tender and juicy, and the guac and the salsa full of flavour.

With an outdoor courtyard that captures the mid day sun, and plenty of indoor seating, South of the Wall is perfect for any weather condition - although for me, nothing cures a hangover better then sipping a happy hour margarita in the sun while munching down on a delicious serving of nachos.

Food: 4/5
