Pacos Tacos – Eastland



Pacos Tacos in Eastland’s Town Square is their second store in Melbourne, with their first located on Bourke Street in the CBD. However, their Eastland store has a slightly different menu with a smaller focus on cocktails and sharing dishes and a larger focus on main meals and entrees but both stores offering their range of tacos options.

Their Enchilada comes with BBQ chicken, brown rice, red mole, cheese, sour cream, and jalapenos. It’s quite a decent feed, and the combination of ingredients makes for a tasty enchilada. It just needed a few more jalapenos to make it pop.


Pacos Tacos’ Croquetas are basically deep fried sweet corn and pickled jalapeno croquettes with a chipotle sauce. I loved these crunchy croquetas and would happily just eat a few of these and some nachos. 



Their Burritos comes with your choice of chicken, beef or pork with brown rice, black beans, cheese, lettuce, sour cream, jalapenos and a chipotle dressing. I didn’t find the burrito to be anything special, it was nice but again needed some heat to it because it was lacking in a bit of flavour.



The Pollo Frito (aka chicken wings) with a citrus and corn coating with hot sauce. These chicken wings were crispy and moist, and the hot sauce is a nice accompaniment to the wings.

Last words

Pacos Tacos in Eastland doesn’t really wow, but it does offer a good selection of Mexican dishes.

High Tech Burrito


I used to always go by High Tech Burrito on my way to work and back, but at that time I didn’t really have that strong urge to try Mexican food and the fact that my work hours were quite long. I just wanted to get home as quickly as possible.

Glenferrie Road has an interesting range of restaurants, from Malaysian, Australian, Chinese, Japanese and Mexican, and probably countless more that I cannot remember. For me, it’s still slightly out of the way unless I wanted to travel to Doncaster Shoppingtown or Box Hill. I may as well eat in Box Hill though.

Even though I work close by to Glenferrie Road now, it still isn’t convenient to get there.

Alas, I somehow ended up at High Tech Burrito. Before I visited here, I checked my fellow Urbanspoon critics and I saw Godzilla mentioned various times. So when went to try High Tech Burrito, I thought I may as well try this.

Little did I know how enormous this dish was.

Their Godzilla Burrito (I like it naked), comes with steak and chicken pieces, with cheese, beans, rice, fresh salad and topped with (from my understanding) guacamole and sour cream.

It reminded me of Spud Bar to be honest and that’s a good thing! The mix of meat and cold salad and sour cream is so reminiscent of Spud Bar, but with the added Mexican hot sauce. It was delicious and definitely fit for two or more.

I’m usually not a fan of avocado, but I’m getting around to it, it blended really well with all the ingredients and the steak and chicken were cooked nicely and had loads of flavour. Definitely a good feed.

High Tech Burrito, also serves traditional wrapped burritos, tacos, quesadillas which all looked great too. If you want Mexican food, you can’t go wrong here.
