Cinco de Mayo is a celebration held on May 5th predominantly in the United States and parts of Mexico where it is officially called, El Día de la Batalla de Puebla.
It is also a day to celebrates Mexican cuisine, culture and music. And Mexico’s national spirit, Tequila.
Australia may be far removed from the USA and Mexico but we love a good excuse to party, sipping on cervezas, margaritas and tequila shots in between tacos and mariachi bands.
With Sydney jumping on the latest Mexican food and drink bandwagon, there are plenty of celebrations at bars and restaurants. So get into the spirit of the fiesta and visit your favourites such as Mexico Food and Liquor, El Topo, Beach Burrito Company, El Loco and Mejico just to name a few.
