In early 2020, the team behind beloved restaurant Luigi’s Italian announced the venue’s closure to the dismay of many. Thankfully, the group quickly followed this bombshell with a soothing balm, revealing that the team was in the process of opening a new concept down the road, while also passing on the Luigi’s space to a new operator. Mama Taco is the name of the new joint, which sits snugly inside the historic Rialto Theatre. Inspired by the taquerias and mezcalerias of Mexico, Mama Taco seeks to shine a spotlight on Mexican cuisine, showcasing its incredible depth and history by employing traditional techniques and drawing influence from several diverse regions, all while adding some contemporary touches. Mama Taco’s menu includes tacos, platos (larger plates), en el lado (sides) and postre (dessert). The taco selection currently includes four mainstays (each touched in some way by charcoal), while featured taco sets will rotate through weekly, and will explore other regional takes on the humble taco. Mama Taco’s libation list is part deep-dive exploration and part educational experience on all things agave. Those keen to embark on a journey through Mexico’s agave scene can sip on flights of mezcal and tequila, with these same bottles (plus other top-notch spirits) filtering into a sharp cocktail list. The rest of the drinks selection includes mole milkshakes, tepache (fermented pineapple, cinnamon and chilli), a short collection of Mexican cerveza, three Mexican vinos (one white and two reds) and a selection of Australian-made natural wines.
