Day of the Dead at El Camino Cantina
Worship at the altar of El Camino Cantina during its 2020 Day of the Dead fiesta and celebrate delicious foods of the Dias de los Muertos holiday, sinful margarita flavours, loud music, colourful costumes and elaborately face-painted staff.
From Tuesday October 20 to Saturday November 7, the legendary, late-night Tex-Mex diner and bar will drop some new flavours of its mind-blowing frozen margaritas: Devil Chilli (a mix of watermelon, chilli and chilli salt), Walking Dead (passionfruit), Ghost Drop (blueberry), and Poison Apple (sour apple).
Dial up the daily Dias de los Muertos rituals with:
- Terror Tuesdays – new Cadillac taco flavours, including chorizo, feta, mango salsa, jalapenos, feta and coriander, tempura prawn, habanero salsa, guacamole and coriander, and popcorn chicken, shredded iceberg, pico de gallo, chipotle aioli and chives.
- Wicked Wednesdays – wing roulette – a basket of buffalo wings includes one that is laced in ‘Facemelter’ hot sauce. Also, available are limited-edition habanero and teriyaki sauces.
- Troublesome Thursdays – $20 fajita and margarita combination.
- Freaky Friday, Sinful Saturday and Spooky Sunday.
DJs and Halloween themes will be the backdrop at the eatery on Saturday October 31, when guests are encouraged to make their El Camino Cantina pilgrimage in costume, and staff will go all-out ghoulish with Day of the Dead face paint.
A two-hour Deluxe Day of the Dead fiesta package ($89 per person) will be available during the celebrations, and includes tortilla chips and salsa, buffalo wings with blue cheese mayo and guacamole for entrée, chargrilled chicken fajitas served with all the Tex-Mex trimmings, and churros with chocolate and caramel sauce. The package also includes two hours of Cadillac-style margaritas served frozen and on the rocks, house beer and wine, and soft drinks. Guests who indulge in the package receive a Trick or Treat gift bag.
