27/9/12 – Another Trip to Touche Hombre
This week, I had dinner at Touche Hombre, a Mexican restaurant in Melbourne, Lonsdale Street. The food was simply delicious and I also had a Mexican beer, cocktail. It was by far the strangest drink I have ever had, although it tasted great! I wasn’t too sure what was in the drink, although it did taste spicy.
The entire restaurant was filled with skull bottles, skull drawings, paintings and street art that I do find rather fascinating. I also received several business cards in the shape of a taco that I did find rather amusing, especially after the drinks I had consumed that night. The business cards also featured skulls on the front and the back that has questioned whether the skull in general has become an emblem of Mexico’s Day of the Dead.
I do find the business cards artistic, creative and innovative especially in the actual shape and the design. I decided to take a photograph just to convince you to visit Touche Hombre’s for fabulous Mexican food, flavoursome cocktails and not to mention the friendly service! The business cards will definitely provide inspiration for my upcoming exhibition and my product branding for Black Calavera.
