M&A Lane, 100 McLachlan Street, Fortitude Valley
From the crew behind Mighty Mighty cue & brew and Buffalo Bar comes Sin Vida, M&A’s resident Mexican restaurant. The venue offers an adventurous Mexican menu, drawing inspiration from Meso-American and Aztec cultures, as well as Day of the Dead traditions. This is not only evident in the array of Mexican fare on offer, but also in the colourful-yet-dark fit-out details. The al fresco dining area looks over a small rocky garden filled with Aztec statues, cacti and succulents, while inside you’ll be greeted with myriad Mexican and Day of the Dead icons and trinkets. Walls are adorned with tributes to La Calavera Catrina and jars of Mexican produce and quirky tequila bottles line the shelves, all presided over by a huge mural of Frida Kahlo, complete with three-dimensional flowers in her hair.
