The excellent Mexican food served up at Benito's Hat is down to the fresh, good quality ingredients used and the fact that the people here really do seem to care. The unusual name is in honour of former Mexican president and national hero Benito Jurez - and a flamboyant hat-and-feather combination he once wore. History doesn't relate whether Benito ever promised to eat his hat but if he did - judging by these beautiful burritos - he would have enjoyed it. These spiced up fat wraps come courtesy of Ben Fordham and head chef and partner Felipe Fuentes Cruz who offer slow cooked black beans to put in your burritos and tacos, as well as soups and salads made to tried and tested Mexican recipes. They get through almost 30kg of avocados everyday in making the guacamole that's an essential part of the Mexican dining experience. You can also get a range of classics cocktails - think margaritas and palomas - made using agave tequila, and supplemented with seasonal specials. Summer, for example, is time for a mean Mexican espresso martini, or a refreshing watermelon margarita with a kick like a mule.
