Owner Daniel Xerri was a Mechanical Engineer in his past life and lived in France for 4 years. When he returned to Melbourne he wanted a change of scenery. Enter Chachos's - A funky pizza joint that has been shaking things up on Windsor's Chapel Street.
The kitchen sends out pizzas with a cheeky Mexican twist, whilst the bar makes waves with an exciting tequila and mezcal-focused cocktail list.
We loved tasting our way through the menu.
Our favourite pizza was the Quatro Quesos, which, as its name suggests, was a celebration of all things cheesy and featured four delectable cheeses (ricotta, blue cheese, mozarella and parmigiano) all atop a sesame seed crusted pizza base. Just yum!
The Senor Salami was similarly delicious - a cheeky twist on classical toppings, this pizza boasted a San Marzano tomato base and was adorned with hot calabrese salami, jalapeno, fior di latte, hot honey and rocket.
For something a little off centre, The Great Chicken Parmi Pizza was sheer genius. A pizzaiolo's take on the humble chicken parma, this baby was layered with San Marzano, house chicken schnitzel, leg ham, mozzarella, parmigiano and finished with fresh basil.
Dessert time continued to please. Our evening concluded on a sweet high with decadent chocolate cheesecake served with red berry coulis as well as a fiery yet addictive jalapeno and lime housemade sorbet.
