Do you crave authentic Mexican flavours with a fresh, local twist?  In this episode, we journey from the Sapphire Coast to the Sunshine Coast with restauranteur Jason Jones. We’ll explore his passion for Mexican cuisine, ignited by a childhood spent foraging and experimenting in the kitchen.

Jason will share the story behind Mamasita, one of Melbourne’s most beloved Mexican destinations.  We’ll also discover how his adventures abroad, from Europe to Singapore, influenced the creation of his current project, Bandita.

Located riverside in Noosa, Bandita offers a unique take on Mexican food. Think fresh, local seafood cooked over fire, alongside classic favourites like tacos and guacamole.

But Bandita is more than just a restaurant. It’s an experience.  Jason believes in fostering a community around food and creating memorable moments for his guests.

Join us as we delve into Jason’s culinary philosophy, the inspiration behind Bandita, and the magic of dining riverside with a million-dollar sunset.
