Dos Senoritas, Gladesville

Dos Senoritas is a colourful looking Mexican restaurant on busy Victoria Road in Gladesville.  The menu claims to serve up "authentic street style Mexican food we all crave". I've never had "proper Mexican food" before but I do know that I've been craving something cheesey that involves corn chips and Dos Senoritas delivers.



I'm quite taken with the Jamaican ($5), a non-alcoholic drink (cos I'm a wowzer) that is a traditional sweet Mexican infusion of hibiscus flower. My friend has a Corona as she's a proper grown-up.



A basket of crispy, salty corn chips comes free to every table - which is dangerous as it's hard not to scoff the whole lot within minutes of taking our seat.  The salsa is great, it's really substantial with lots of tomatoes and spices which gives it a nice, smokey flavour.


In a (failed) effort to be healthy I order the Taco salad ($24) mainly has it has iceberg lettuce tossed in ranch dressing (I love Ranch dressing SO much). The salad is topped with seasoned steak, jack and cheddar cheese, pico, black beans, guacamole and sour cream. The whole lot comes in a crispy tortilla shell that serves as a bowl. By the end of the meal there is nothing left on plate at all - not even the tortilla bowl the salad came in. 


My buddy orders the Chipotle Chopped Salad ($24) which looks the same as my salad but I swear it's not! Her tortilla bowl is filled with grilled chicken breast (I had steak), iceberg lettuce, jack and cheddar cheese, pico, black beans and avocado. Plus its tossed with chipotle ranch and tortilla chips - so double crunchiness eschews.


For the prices and the size of the meals I'd say that Dos Senoritas is really really good value. You definitely won't leave here hungry. The menu says that this food is not Tex Mex - but I do wonder if food it eaten out of tortilla bowls in Mexico (are they, can someone fill me in please)?

Dos Senoritas  is at 265D Victoria Road, Gladesville. Phone them on 9817 3737 (they get pretty busy, even on a Sunday night so bookings are recommended).

  4. I've been to the branch in Crows Nest, and loved it! That basket of corn chips is so more-ish, I think I devoured it all myself.
