Cityscape checks out Mexico's new Winter menu. Mexico launched its new winter menu recently, turning up the heat just in time for the chilly (or should that be chilli?) season with new dishes such as the new Pipian Chicken and Ancho Dry Rubbed Prawn (pictured below) Tacos and Crab Albondigas, as well as bringing back old favourites like the Lime Curd and Vanilla Cheesecake, Fried Chicken and Esquites. The Cityscape crew dropped in to their Manchester Street operation to check the new goodies out for ourselves – just for scientific purposes, you understand – and had soon ordered ourselves up a well-laden table of the new hotness. Most found it difficult to go past the deliciousness of the new pork cheek barbacoa taco with chilli and pineapple salsa, plantain chips, and pickled pineapple, but the beef arrachera taco with whipped garlic, grapes, saffron stained apple, almond crumbs and bursting with fiery pink...

Time to get your w/end on CHCH! Brace yourself for margarita madness and tequila fatigue as the week-long Cinco De Mayo celebrations, the Mexican Anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, kick off today. Get your south of the border fix at Alvarados Mexican Cantina, or hit up Mexicano’s and Tequila Mockingbird for week-long drink and food specials as well as live music at the latter from 9 tonight with Geraldo's Mariachi Band. No dice? Unwind with end-of-the-week laughs from Raybon Khan and killer pizza at Winnie Bagoes Ferrymead from 8pm – unless you’re a fashionista (champers sweetie?), in which case you’ll probably already have your ticket for Canterbury Fashion Week’s Canterbury Collections show at the Tannery from 7pm. Catch some sweet sounds at the Monday Room from Mr Starlight and at Trevino’s from Reckless Duo or rock up to the Cargo Bar and see if the Kiwis (New Zealand Rugby League)...
