Super Loco's Guide to Your Perfect Mexican Home Party

SUPER LOCO ROBERTSON QUAY

Cheers

If there’s one thing we know, it’s showing our familia and friends how to have a good time no matter the weather: storm, shine or stay-at-home season. There’s no time like the present to living la vida Loco than partying like a Jefe in sunny Mexico: get your fiesta fix below with our one-stop shop for all your fiesta essentials! Here’s our guide to throwing the perfect Mexican home dinner party that will be remembered for days to come.

Bring on The Beats

 Ajay Parag

Stumped on what songs to choose to set the mood for your Mexican-themed dinner party? Our resident DJ and Loco founder Ajay Parag has curated a fiesta playlist that will keep everyone grooving all night in Mexico in no time! 

Put on our Loco playlist and let the beat drop!

Viva la Vibrant Vibes

Picado Flags

Brighten up the party and hang traditional Mexican papel picado flags across your garden or walls. Intricately crafted, these iconic colourful banners of elaborately crafted paper flags commonly decorate the streets of Mexico, especially on holidays such as Dia de los Muertos and during festivals. If you’ve got some time to spare, make a trip to your local florist to decorate the party area with native Mexican flowers such as dahlias and Mexican marigolds to add even more cheer.

 

Get your party papel picado flags here.

Munch Like There’s No Mañana

Customs House Food Spread

It’s not a Mexican dinner party until the real stars of the party arrive: tacos, quesadillas, guacamole and of course, crunchy cinnamon-rolled churros. Get in on the night’s action with our tips on how to eat a taco like a Mexican: 

  1. Lay your tortilla on a plate and evenly spread the vegetable slaw across it.

  2. Don’t overstuff that tortilla! Place your choice of protein on top of the vegetables.

  3. Drizzle over that sizzle with a generous dollop of sauce. 

  4. Here’s the important part: grab your tortilla at both ends and fold them up to secure your taco.

  5. Next, pinch the top end with your thumb, index and middle finger.

  6. Bite from the side (not the top or middle) and show your taco who’s the Jefe!

Buen Provecho!

Mexflix and Margaritas

Monday Margaritas

Falling into a food coma after your delicioso Mexican feast? Gather your housemates, favourite Loco margaritas and put on a movie that’s on your bucket list. In case you’re wondering what’s currently on ours, we recommend Como Caído del Cielo (As If Fallen From Heaven), a light-hearted comedy about legendary Mexican actor-singer Pedro Infante sent back to Earth to earn his place in Heaven. If you’re gunning for a little more political satire, critically-acclaimed La Dictadura Perfecta (The Perfect Dictatorship) takes on social and political issues faced in contemporary Mexican society.

Party On With Pinatas

Pinata Bashing

There are many things that make a fiesta, and a pinata is one of them. Smashing a pinata is certified fiesta fun, whether it’s a fun night in with your housemates, friends or celebrating an amigo’s birthday party. Hop online to have a look at our pinata selections for a smashing night in from our loco familia! 

Order your favourite Loco bundles, bites, beers, margaritas and pinata (or two!) here.
