California Tacos brings a taste of the Baja to Brisbane with a SoCal-inspired Mexican eatery and bar in the heart of West End, serving fresh tacos, huge burritos and the biggest plate of nachos in Australia.
Located on Boundary Street, the light-filled taqueria features mosaic tiled tables, yucca plants, and pops of pink neon for those Insta-worthy pics.
The eatery boasts plenty of seating including inside a modern, chic dining room, outside on the footpath, plus an al fresco dining space out back with a margarita bar, accessed via a secret laneway.
The mouthwatering menu features an array of tacos including classics like The OG Fish Taco, Pollo (chicken) and El Porky - plus signature ones such as The Cali (chargrilled steak, salsa, french fries, baja aioli, avo-peño cream and guacamole) and Hawaiian (citrus-marinated chicken, melted cheese, sweet potato fries, mango and pineapple salsa, chipotle aioli and avocado). There's even a cactus taco made with sautéed cactus, zucchini, spanish onion, white cabbage, black beans and salsa. All tacos are made using house made flour or corn tortillas.
There's also massive burritos served with corn chips and salsa including California, Baja Beach, El Pescador and Surf n' Turf stuffed with sautéed shrimp, carne asada steak, cheese, black beans, citrus lime rice, cucumber salsa, and guacamole.
California Tacos also boasts to have the biggest plate of nachos in Australia including classic nachos, Surf n' Turf and California Fries - corn chips loaded with french fries, cheese, black beans, avo-peño cream, guacamole, salsa and your choice of protein.
The bar is fully licensed offering local craft beer on tap, Mexican beer, and delicious cocktails, from frozen daiquiris and calicoladas (coconut rum, coconut cream and pineapple) to sangria and margaritas - Mango, Coconut, Watermelon and more.
