DINING at Rojo Rocket restaurant and bar at Avoca on the Nswcentral coast means swapping Aussie fish and chips for the tastes of Mexico. This character cottage, with zany palm-draped terraces and rainbow-hued spaces, embodies a vibrant mood that complements the menu created by chef Alejandro Urbina Andrade. Think quesadillas de chorizo ($16), tostadas de atun fresco (sashimi tuna with Mexican trimmings, $12) and papa rellena (baked potato dough stuffed with vegetables and salsa, $22). Splash out on a fruity caipirinha, margarita, jug of sangria or imported beer. More: rojorocket.com.au.
