“Wellington's Fast and Delicious Mexican Fix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

As a former Californian, I always crave great Mexican food when travelling around the world. Wellington's growing passion for great Mexican food is very apparent, as there are more and more Mexican food options appearing all the time, it seems. Mad Mex is a fantastic and authentic fast-food restaurant located in the food court of the Lambton Quay Shopping Centre. It's tucked away in its own corner of the food court, with lots of seating available. It's almost like a small restaurant in the food court. The menu consists of all the must-have Mexican food items: tacos, burritos, etc. The ingredients are of a high quality, and the taste is 100% authentic. If you like spicy food, there is a Habanero chili option for the hot sauce, and it will set your mouth on fire! All meals are assembled in front of you, and you are able to choose all of your ingredients. For those of you who have visited the Chipotle Grill in America, you will get the idea of this restaurant's food and format. Alas, it's a food court setting, so this isn't really the place to have an evening out. Even still, when you want your fix of Mexican food, you will not be disappointed.
