Chupacabra Mexican restaurant in Suffolk Park is turning four this week! Through the ups and downs of the past few years this little taqueria has moved with the times and managed to keep locals happy with their offering of fresh and fun Mexican cuisine.
To celebrate their four year anniversary, Chupacabra will be feeding folks a host of their favourites from throughout the years including the winter warmer queso fundido (molten cheese dip with tortilla chips) and the dish that keeps people coming back
– fish wings in jalapeño and agave butter. ‘It’s been a tough time to have a restaurant the past few years’ says co-owner Evan White. ‘Because we are small and owner operated we have been able to expand or pare back when we needed to. We’ve made a lot of changes to the way we do things since 2018 but we are really proud to be here still feeding people now!’
There are some things that never need to change, however. ‘Our margarita is pretty well known’ says Evan. ‘The secret is just good quality ingredients, but especially it’s the organic dark agave syrup that sweetens it instead of sugar.’ And Chupacabra has always put focus on quality. They use ingredients sourced as locally and sustainably as possible. The region is well known for producers and the ability to use providers like Northern Rivers Seafood means that they can keep a close eye on where their products are coming from and how they are being handled.
The team from Chupacabra hope to continue to support local providers and keep customers happy with authentic Mexican cuisine and friendly faces, through good times and tough times.
