Handy Tips

"This is a delicious interactive dinner to share with friends or family and everyone gets to make their own. The spiced beef wrapped in a soft corn tortilla with fresh salsa, smashed avo, sour cream and hot green sauce is an awesome combination. Extra delicious of course when it's made with West Australian local produce." - Anna Gare
