Barangaroo’s new Mexican-inspired restaurant Tequila Daisy

Located harbourside at Barangaroo, Tequila Daisy is the newest venture by husband and wife duo Rebecca Lines and Hamish Ingham, replacing the former Banksii Vermouth Bar & Bistro.

Designed by Luchetti Krelle, the waterfront space has been transformed into a bright and bustling 200-seat eatery that is primed for good times.

With colourful tones of red, yellow and blue, the extensive outdoor terrace exudes a vibe of chilled poolside meets Mexican fiesta, with its bright window decals, pastel blue picnic tables and vibrant yellow umbrellas and chairs.

Inside, you’ll find a long walk-up bar with accents of blue and white daisy tiles that displays an extensive selection of mezcal and tequila.

“We’ve created a long drinks list that will work regardless of if you’re enjoying a quick beer or settling in for an afternoon of margaritas,” says co-owner and award-winning Sommelier, Rebecca Lines. “We’ve really seen Barangaroo’s clientele evolve over the last few years so we wanted to mix things up and have some fun with a new concept that would work for everyone!”

Tequila Daisy’s new menu takes a fresh Australian twist on the diverse cuisine that hails from Mexico. Each dish is jam-packed with colourful, rich flavours from the region, lightened by the duo’s fresh approach to food and drink and deep respect for Australia’s best produce.

Divided into entradas, a selection of tacos, grande dishes and sides, diners can starting with a beef cheek empanada with black bean sour cream and kingfish tostadas before indulging in a share-style BBQ achiote spatchcock and spicy chilli spanner crab a la diabla. For the sweet tooth, desserts include the Daisy Pinata, a playful dish of chocolate, dulce de leche, raspberry sorbet that you crack open to reveal sprinkles of candy as well as the ever-popular classic churros with chilli chocolate sauce.

For those looking for a quick fix or grabbing a bite to eat at the Barangaroo foreshore, Tequila Daisy continues to serve takeaway tacos and drinks from its Bar Taqueria.
