The Headless Mexican

Genuinely Not Mexican

Abuela Frida said we should take a change of direction, so we have closed the doors to our permanent store, and will be heading to local markets and the odd pop-up with our friends.

This means EVERYTHING apart from the walls, floor, and ceiling is for sale! Come on in for a chat, browse, and shop!

Adios…. For now!


"Fantastic little spot in Sumner, I’ve visited multiple times when staying in Christchurch. The new buffalo chicken is dope, and but booze is better! The owners are great fun and worth supporting."

"Food, drinks, service all perfect. Best frozen margarita (raspberry and habanero)"

"Went here last Saturday for brunch to break out of the "bacon, eggs bene, etc" cycle. Food was fantastic. Nice size dishes at a good price. Great tastes and a healthy delicious brekky/lunch option. What the hell. Suns over the yardarm  - tried a Margherita and a Bloody Maria. Both were very moreish. Staff are great and whole visit was so enjoyable we went back. Highly recommend the Huevos Rancheros and Chili on Sourdough toast. Thanks Guys. See you soon 🤩😋"

"Superb little restaurant with great atmosphere and wonderful friendly hosts. The food was superb and authentic. Will definitely be back! 😊"
