Caracara Cantina in Tugun offers diners and sippers rustic and authentic Mexican fare alongside a fine selection of tequila and mezcal. At the front is the bright and breezy street-fronting cantina, and through a separate door at the rear you’ll find the dimly lit tequila bar. The menu starts with bites like spiced bean dip with corn chips, grilled Padron peppers with a sweet red-pepper dipping sauce and ceviche of fresh local market fish, acting as the perfect prelude to the menu’s hero – authentic street-style tacos. Caracara tacos feature charred flour tortillas assembled with proteins like slow-braised pulled pork, spiced market fish and oven-baked dry-spiced pumpkin. The classic burrito sees a blistering tortilla filled with spiced red beans, rice, slaw and a punchy herb salad before being wrapped and finished with a dollop of guacamole. Once you’ve finish chomping through tacos and sipping margaritas in the cantina, stroll down the back into Caracara’s moody tequila den to taste your way through the sizeable collection.
