El Camino Cantina, The Rocks

Moving in a completely different direction from where the delightful Ananas used to be in the Argyle, El Camino brings a fun and energetic feel to the area with it’s bold TexMex food and cocktails. Big fans of this we jumped at the opportunity to try it out.

Ole! Our meal started with a complementary helping of corn chip, a warm salsa and creamy avocado dip.

These are all self-serve from the ‘car boot’ stations around the restaurant. My only advice is: Don’t fill up!

These fun and refreshing cocktails were an excellent accompaniment for our food to come. The Classic margarita was zesty and full of life while the other was deliciously sweet with a hint of heat!

Lobster ($12) and Al Pastro ($6) Tacos

With your choice of corn, flour or hard shell, and a whole range of fillings the tacos at El Camino are seriously the sh*t.  The lobster chunks we generous and the marinated pork was indescribably delicious.

Barbacoa Pork Quesadillia $17

This is actually like eating a mexican pizza of sorts only ten times better. The juicy flavours pork is mixed between pickled green chillis, melted cheese and grilled pineapple salsa. One slice is not enough!

Ghost Pepper Chicken Wings $19

A great sharer, these were actually not as spicy as I thought they were going to be which was a massive relief and I find that too much spice ruins the experience. The glowing wings were super tender and made even better with a good slathering of the mango chilli vinegar or the blue cheese dip.

Sizzling Spiced Chicken Fajita $28

Highly recommended by our lovely waiter, this baby comes to your table sizzling away and I must say the smell is just incredible.

On top of the delicious meat of your choosing you also get a variety of goodies to wrap up with it including flour tortillas, guac, cheese, salsa, beans and sour cream. Delish!

Los Churros $10

5 perfectly crisp and golden churros rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with salted mexican caramel. Absolutely divine! I would come back just for these.

Dulce de Lece and Chocolate Pudding $10

Interesting dessert, I loved the presentation! Taste wise this was a heavy dessert and after all the delicious food we had eaten previously I could only manage a couple of bites. The tart raspberry jelly does quite a bit to balance the flavour and refresh the palate. Nonetheless a fantastic dessert!

El Camino had us drooling as soon as we came in with it’s vibrant atmosphere and delicious food and drink offerings. A huge plus was the quality of service with staff always friendly and attentive. We had such a great time here and highly recommend a visit!
