Fat Cactus in Gardens is a bit of an institution for my friends and I. We go there ALL THE TIME. It is in no way a fine dining establishment, but it sure as hell is always a laugh. The energy is great and if you’re in the mood for a Mexican fiesta, there’s no need to look any further. Make sure to always book a table though cause this place is usually packed…
There are 3 things that make for a successful Fat Cactus evening:
- Tequila shots
- Lots and lots of frozen margarita jugs
- And last, but my no means least… Chilli poppers!!!
The original Fat Cactus branch is actually located in Mowbray and is still rocking the scene today. I just prefer the Gardens branch as it’s right around the corner from home, so it’s much easier to get home if you happen to overdo it on the tequila shots & margarita jugs (and trust me, that is normally the case).
On to my official Miss K Kiss-o-Meter ratings:
Now sadly on Friday eve I had to be a good girl – you see I had a lingerie shoot early the next morning (DO NOT WORRY… more about that later ) – so had to seriously watch what I ate & drank to avoid looking like a bloated mess the next day and I also had to make sure I got lots & lots of beauty sleep. So I ducked out relatively early, just this once. Normally at least more than one of us has to be carried out of that joint. haha. Good times, good times… I hear that this Friday night was no different, someone else still made the team proud! Nice one guys! I will be sure to make up for my poor performance really really soon…
