Okay, we were attracted to Agave by the $10 deal on margharitas (stick with the classic and don't worry with the pre-made slushies!), but were keen to try out some of the other interesting options on the dinner menu. We wanted to try the pulpo al ajillo (octopus with guajillo chilli, garlic and rice) but they sadly they didn't have it. Instead we tried the queso fundido chorizo - a rich, fondue of cheese and sausage- very tasty and a little overpowering but good with the shredded lamb and vegetable salad. We also selected the pork as it came with nopales cactus which I was curious to try and appreciate the effort needed to remove the spines!

Turns out I'm not as keen on the cactus after all. It had a texture similar to okra (mmm...slimy), but the taste  was okay. The chillies and tomatillo sauce/soup complimented the tender and flavoursome pork neck. By the time we finished, we had no room for dessert (damn that cheese!) Still, it was nice to have a different take on Mexican food given the variety of options around Sydney.
