Pounding avocados tableside, our Peruvian guacamole girl unleashes a smile so devastating, it’s almost enough to make me love this joint.

I’m not alone: it’s jumping, and nearly every table avails themselves of her signature Market Fresh Guacamole ($9) with plantain chips.

As a chilli fanatic, I was smitten with Mexican Chilli Beer ($10)...

...a great drinking companion to the...

Agave-sweetened hunks of grilled cheese - Queso Fresco ($9) - work better to ease the burning sensation than the accompanying polenta.

Hiramasa Kingfish Ceviche ($16) presented on house-baked tostadas were a little too delicate for my liking, but I lapped up...

Try anything from her namesake Sweet Desire ($16) to my fav. - An Easy Read ($17) - an also easy-to-drink blend of Espolon reposado, pineapple and rosemary.

Perhaps the best use of tequila is their Milk Chocolate Shot ($6) that summoned up Florence & The Machine’s hit - A Kiss With A Fist.

I’m hoping the runaway success here will be enough to make neighbouring Jamie’s Italian rethink that pesky no booking policy…
