The verdict

Sydney just scored this bloody winner of a new Mexican joint and it’s one that you’ll most certainly be hitting up. And not just because of the treasure hunt you’ll find yourself on while trying to locate the entrance (hint: it’s above the Newtown train station) or the awesome string of colourful flags or fairy lights that adorn this beauty. 

It’s the seriously fresh and tasty cantina feast that’ll have you coming back again and again. Cue marinated chicken strips drizzled with salsa verde and chorizo chunks cooked in tomato chipotle jam. And FYI, one does not simply head to Calaveras for a light snack. This is a go hard or go home type gem and that goes for the ridiculously good sangria too.  

And as you would guess, the tequila and mezcal line-up here is off the charts with the lychee laguna which is full of tequila, fresh limes and lychee juice. It’s a major standout and something you need to treat your tastebuds to, stat.
