Chilliwow | 22 Constance Street, FORTITUDE VALLEY QLD 4006

Exactly a week ago today, I attended a mid-week fiesta in Mexico with Chilliwow.  Well, at least that’s what it felt like. With all the beautiful and exotic decorations at the establishment, it was a close to a Mexican paradise as you can get 5 mins from home.

The other travel bunnie and I were invited to Chilliwow, a Mexican Bar and Cantina nestled in a backstreet in the Valley for the launch of their brand new summer Menu. It was a night of funky music, awesome cocktails and endless Mexican food. You see, the night all started with some “innocent” looking jalapeno poppers, but they weren’t any ordinary jalapeno poppers, those crumbed whole jalapeno poppers were stuffed with cream cheese and served with coriander mayo. I had one and I couldn’t stop myself eat more. They were really THAT addictive. And from then on, the food just kept flowing.  From different flavours of tacos, to nachos topped with house made refried black beans, chilli con carne, tasty chees, queso fresco, pico de gallo, jalapenos & guacamole¸  it literally felt like if we weren’t drinking, we were constantly shoving down the delicious Mexican treats into our mouths. For all you chilli lovers out there, Chilliwow provides extra bottles of hot sauces to challenge your tastebuds and those sauces are HOT.

Their new summer menu offers classic Mexican options with very friendly price tags. And what’s more special at this place is that the summer menu is paired with an equally impressive drink menu that would easily blow your mind with those tempting and delicious sounding cocktails. If you are like me, and get way too excited by looking at the drink menu to decide (but ultimately failed miserably as I wanted to sample everything), then ask one of their friendly wait staff for a recommendation!

The night finished on a sweet note… oh so sweet with those churros.  Picture churros being coated in cinnamon sugar and served with chilli & orange dipping sauce with a side of cream… now you hear me. 

The two owners are extremely friendly, one of whom took us for a tour around Chilliwow and shared some ideas with us  - a breezy outdoor function area, a Cuban bar and plenty more to come. So stay tuned.Description:

Hey, next time if you’re looking for a place for a causal night of fun and good cheap eats, Chilliwow might just be your answer.
