We dined at Touche Hombre tonight. Great atmosphere (including nice retro music from the '80's) and very reasonable prices. The food was full of zingy, Mexican flavours (fresh, smoky and zesty, accentuated by a range of sauces on the table - chipotle, jabonero and jalapeño). We are fans of flavorsome, freshly prepared food and will be back. We sat at... More

My husband and I accidentally came across this restaurant when I got us lost looking for something else...lucky. We both enjoy Mexican and both big eaters. The menu had plenty to choose from and the corn cob is to die for, so was the agave chicken. We ate far too much and enjoyed the service and atmosphere so much, we... More

Went for dinner and although it was quite busy we managed to find a perch at the bar. Ordered a range of dishes and was very pleased with all of them. Fresh and innovative take on some Mexican favorites.

Really enjoyed this place - we sat down for dinner at about 7:30 and they were super busy. It's not difficult to see why! Everything we had was great, but the lamb ribs were a winner. Not sure if this is really authentic Mexican food, as nothing was very spicy, but it was all delicious. can't wait to go back... More

Nice venue with super friendly staff. We opted for the sharing plates which were well presented and full of zing especially the Oaxacan Zucchini Flower. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Touché Hombre. Mexicano foods. Baja, you say it like ha-ha. Tequila is more than shots. Walls are for painting on. '80s time machine, 90's flashbacks. Fatty Lamb is fat. Tacos tacos tacos. The corn, man, the corn. Mezcal, hell! Street Fighter II 4eva. Big eats need big beats. Fortunes aren't just told Zoltar, they're made. Streets are for art and streets are for food. Functions aka eat and drink in a group. Big or small. Sit down. Stand up. Canapés. Dinner-time. Brithday partys. Hen's/Bucks Night. Lunchy-lunch. Corporate-style. Real goodtimes. Come to drink, come to eat, do both. Touché Hombre. Mexican Restaurant. Melbourne CBD. Lonsdale Street. Tequila. Taco's. We got it all!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
