El Camino Cantina Chermside
Less than a year on from its arrival on King Street in Bowen Hills, famed Tex-Mex bar and eatery El Camino Cantina expanded to Brisbane’s north. Rockpool Dining Group delivered its El Camino concept to Westfield Chermside’s outdoor dining and entertainment precinct in October 2019, taking over the tenancy that once housed Hermosa. Like its inner-city sibling, the 220-seat venue translated El Camino Cantina’s lively atmosphere – complete with neon lights, fluorescent signage, bright artwork, bold rock posters and colourful calavera, built upon a foundation palette of weathered wood and reclaimed timbers, rustic recycled bricks and breeze blocks, decorative tiles and ornamental touches. El Camino Cantina’s food and drink offering was also implemented, starting with the venue’s famous unlimited complimentary chips with salsa, and moving through the signature soft-shelled tacos, fajitas, burritos, quesadillas, buffalo wings, nachos and other classic Tex-Mex fare. Margarita lovers can sip on shaken or frozen varieties, while beer lovers can quaff Australian craft and flagship Mexican draught and bottled cervezas.
