Fitzroy’s El Camino Cantina is bringing la vida loca to lockdown

El Camino Cantina

Tex-Mex wild child El Camino Cantina in Fitzroy is delivering fajita kits, taco kits, fiesta packs and six flavours of margaritas.

Starting September 1, El Camino Cantina is delivering its top six margarita flavours, fajita packs, taco packs and fiesta packs, with deliveries available every Friday and Saturday across metropolitan Melbourne.

The fajita packs include chargrilled steak ($45), chargrilled chicken ($43), or a steak-chicken combo ($47) and are designed for two to share. A simple finish-at-home formula requires customers to chargrill or sauté chicken, steak and veggies, warm beans and fresh, house-made tortillas, and then serve with sour cream and salsa.

The taco pack ($70) that feeds four promises to spice up the stay- at-home lifestyle. Taco packs include 12 tortillas, spicy pulled pork, ground beef, shredded Iceberg lettuce, cheese, salsa, beans, sour cream, and garnishes of jalapenos, lime and coriander. Add on DIY guacamole ($5).

The tex-mex fiesta pack ($109-$129), caters to a family or shared household of four to six members. Included in the home-style party pack are DIY guacamole and chips, marinated steak and chicken, spicy pulled pork, beans, vegetables to chargrill, cheese, salsa, sour cream and 24 tortillas. A decadent group-sized fudge brownie and two 500ml margaritas of choice are also included in this value-packed party package.

Bottled Margaritas are also available, ready to be served on the rocks by pouring over ice, or with instructions of how to blend and serve frozen. Purchase regular Ritas, or those that are luxed up Cadillac-style with a shot of Grand Marnier, which brings a rich, luxurious note.

Six flavours are available – Classic, Mango, Strawberry, Passionfruit, Watermelon and Grape Nerd – with flavoured salts and lime for garnish. These legendary Ritas come in three sizes:

  • 250ml, or Quarter Litre Rita ($25 regular/$30 Cadillac)
  • 500ml, or Half Litre Rita ($40/$50)
  • 1000ml, or Litre Rita ($75/$90)

EL Camino Cantina Food & Beverage Director Molly Haranis said: “El Camino Cantina @ Home is going off in Sydney; we can barely bottle margaritas fast enough to keep up with orders.”

“We reckon our loyal Melbourne customers are also suffering El Camino Cantina withdrawal symptoms right about now, so we’re bringing the best of our tacos, fajitas, fiesta packs and bottle margaritas to their door.”

Available: Friday to Saturday. Cut off for deliveries is 2pm, for next day delivery between 12pm and 6pm. Pick up is available at El Camino Cantina Fitzroy (222 Brunswick Street) on Friday and Saturday

Orders can be placed at El Camino Cantina @ Home.
