Big El's and The Cure, Mexican & Irish side by side!



Back on the streets of Northbridge.. just for a change :) sitting side by side on Francis St. the colourful duo Big El's above and The Cure below. If it's Latin American fusion/Mexican you're after Big El's the go, haven't heard or read a bad review yet. How cool is the Mexican Dia de Muertos influenced painting by Perth artist Destroy, there's another beauty inside I believe, will have to check it out! With the colder weather heading our way it might be a bowl of beef and Guinness stew that takes your fancy, or maybe just a hearty pint of Guinness without the stew..sláinte! Hope your week is off to a good start, take care and stay safe...

  6. The mural's rather unusual... very different from your previous one.

  7. The Cure named after the band, I suppose, although having just checked, the band wasn't Irish.

  13. Okay, I get the Irish place. Our diaspora is everywhere, including this particular street in St. Louis. But it puzzles me to see Mexican in WA. How would you know if it is more-or-less genuine?

  14. Those are some lovely work of art in the window. Would definitely have a second look when I pass by there.

  18. Choices, this is just the way I like to dine! It's especially fun to experience dinner at one and perhaps dessert at another too! Adventures in delicious flavors!

  21. Oh, Grace, now I crave Mexican food! And there is no good Mexican restaurant left here.

  22. We have a restaurant here 1/2 Mexican, 1/2 Irish. What's up with that? Name? Pedro O'Hara's. Have not sampled the food on either side; however, the beer is mighty fine.

  23. Bright facades, must give the Mexican a try. I like the mural too.

  24. Oh, YES! Do go in and try the Guinness Stew...all in the name of research, of course.

  25. The Day of the Dead painting is quite good, isn't it? In Naples, there is one restaurant that features Italian and sushi. Go figure.

  26. What you're saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I'm sure you'll reach so many people with what you've got to say.
