Mexicans use the word “Fonda” to describe a local house with an open kitchen. It is a place where people traditionally come together to enjoy a mother’s cooking direct from the source. A Fonda is warm, familiar and relaxed. Fonda food is fresh, locally sourced and cooked with love. A Fonda is open to all comers, and embodies the philosophy: ‘My house, your house’ or Mi Casa Su Casa!
Founded in 2011 by David Youl and Tim McDonald, Fonda Mexican offers three unique takes on the Mexican open kitchen, in Flinders Lane, Hawthorn, Richmond and Windsor.
