Best Mex Series: Bundilla Mexican in Mooloolaba

We took a trip down to the Sunshine Coast for the third installment of our BEST MEX series. Bundilla Mexican Restuarant/Takeaway has been in Mooloolaba for over 20 years! It was clear that it was very popular amongst the locals when we visited on Saturday night. Every table was reserved and it quickly became bustling with loads hungry people. Bundilla is one of those great places you pray a local will recommend to you when visiting the Sunshine Coast. Affordable prices, great food, and impeccable hospitality is how we would describe Bundilla Mexican. The next time we are on the Sunshine Coast you'll be sure to find us here.

The restaurant has recently changed hands. The new owners, Bruce and Fiona Heard were actually regular customers of the restaurant before purchasing it last year. They were at the restaurant for a meal one day when they noticed that the shop was for sale. They bought it and told us it was one of the best decision they've ever made. The couple worked at the restaurant for 6 to 7 months learning the tricks of the trade before taking over the reins. They recently got a new shop sign and from what we saw Saturday night things are going very well! 

So.... how was the food you ask...? 

We started off with some homemade guacomole and chips...

The guac was beautifully prepared. Incredibly fresh, and smooth! I had to restrain Darrell from scrapping the bowl clean. He refused to believe that the dip was gone. 

For our entrees we had Chilli Rellenos which are jalopeno chillies with cheese, dipped in batter, and fried...

After informing Bruce that we we preferred milder food we were a bit surprised when he recommended the jalopeno chillies.  We went with it and we are so glad we did! This would have to be one of the best dishes we tried thus far in our BEST MEX series. The jalopenos weren't overpowering at all. After being deep fried, covered in cheese, and sour cream the chillies provided a nice suddle bite to this dish. The chilies were  placed on top of a bed of mexican rice which made it even more incredible. This dish is a MUST TRY. Darrell is still pestering me to ask for the recipe... 

For our main we had Combo #2 which came with a beef enchilada, taco, and taquitos...

We love the combos at Bundilla. They give you a bit of everything ! The serving was massive. You get more than your money's worth at Bundilla Mexican. It's nice not having to settle for one thing. If you feel like enchiladas, tacos, and taquitos then you can have it.... AND for a great price! The food was delicious. The enchilada was definitely a favourite of ours. 

We both agree that Bundilla Mexican is one of the most authentic Mexican food options on the coast. Next time you are in Mooloolaba give it a try for yourself.
