The past fortnight has been massive for fans of Mexican cuisine, but the good news doesn’t stop there. A new Mexican restaurant is on its way to Teneriffe, with La Patrona currently taking shape in the old Sourced space. Owner Rebeca Flores has lived in New Farm and Teneriffe since emigrating from Mexico in 2000, and has long believed that the area (and Brisbane at large) needed more traditional Mexican eateries. After a number of years searching for a suitable home, Rebeca jumped on the chance to take on the Florence Street space, and is already hard at work refurbishing the kitchen and interior to suit her vision of an informal family-friendly venue. With a capacity of roughly 80 patrons, Rebeca is aiming to cater to guests in a restaurant-style setting, rather than a bar. The food itself will be inspired by Rebecca’s home region of Bajio, a state known for its flavoursome cuisine. Alongside head chef Ariel Becerra (who also hails from the Baijo region), Rebecca is formulating a menu that draws influence from Mexico’s indigenous and Spanish eras. Think traditional enchiladas, moles, soups and al pastor-style tacos, bolstered by a selection of Mexican beers, cocktails and more. La Patrona is aiming to open in mid-May, with a large mural in the works that is set to be unveiled in conjunction with the Brisbane Street Art Festival. We’ll have a closer look for you once La Patrona is open.
