El Camino Cantina
Sneaking in before the end of 2018, late-night hangout El Camino Cantina opened at the King Street Co-Op in November. The Tex-Mex concept comes from Rockpool Dining Group, which has already made its mark on King Street with its mammoth Bavarian Beerhaus. El Camino Cantina has a similar feel to its Sydney siblings at The Rocks and Manly, offering a vibrant carnival of custom-designed artwork, neon lights, rock ‘n’ roll music, muscle car-inspired touches and distinctly Mexican decorative details – a true representation of Texan meets Mexican. This continues through to the food – menu is similar to its southern siblings with a few new additions, including entrees of ceviche and ensalada de sandia, three flavours of quesadillas, three burritos and a selection of nine tacos, including chargrilled steak, black-bean hummus and cheeseburger flavours. Also of note, the bar serves up a host of frozen margaritas and a giant range of tequila and mezcal.
