At Messina, we love eating. Gelato + SO MUCH other good food. It was our love of eating that led us to start MESSINA EATS, a monthly (or so) two-day pop up event which brings some of our favourite and the most f*cking delicious food creators we could think of to Sydney. They look after the lunch & dinner and we handle dessert.

It’s held at our Rosebery HQ in Sydney (just a carpark really, but we snazz it up. Hey – that’s where all great parties start right?). Expect lots (and lots) of food.

For the first time in Messina Eats history, we’re partnering with a Mexican Restaurant.  This is no Tex Mex my friends, we’re bringing the mexican gods from Melbourne that is Mamasita.

Over two hot and saucy days in August Mamasita will be plating up five epically authentic dishes – hailed straight from the streets of Mexico, with a modern twist and bags of flavour.

Here’s a taste of what you can expect…

Elote callejeroChargrilled corn, queso, chipotle mayo, lime

 Grilled market fish taco (2): achiote, red onion salsa, cabbage, chipotle mayo

Pibil-style pork hock tacos (2): chicharrón, pickled red onion, pineapple

Guerrero-braised beef tostada: refried whitebean, onion & coriander

Papas locas (spicy shoestring fries)topped w pork, chicharrón, crema, arbol chili, onion & coriander

MAMASITA_Dessert (1 of 1)


It wouldn’t be Messina Eats without an oversized custom sundae.  We’re dishing up a classic like you’ve never seen it before.

 NA’ CHO SUNDAE; sour cream gelato, spiced dark chocolate flan, popcorn praline, passionfruit, strawberries, white chocolate corn chips.
