Mexican food is becoming increasingly popular within the Novocastrian community. For fair reason too, its bloody delicious! As there is a rise in restaurants throughout the Newcastle region, the standards have been set much higher. I’ve done my fair share of taco tasting and compiled a list of the best Mexican Eateries in Newcastle. Check it out down below!
11 Steel Street, Newcastle West 2302
Born from humble beginnings, Antojitos was first established in Northern California. After acquiring a loyal Newcastle following, owners realised there was a desire for Mexican street food here in Newcastle and quickly set up shop in “A hole in the wall” in Carrington.
Antojitos has now reestablished in a new venue in Newcastle West. Despite their quick growth, the owners insist that there is, “Still no bullshit… we simply strive for great food and service in a unique atmosphere”.
Antojitos vegetarian nachos are unreal, they use house made, crunchy corn chips topped with fresh veggies, pinto beans pico de gallo, salsa de aguacate, crema, salsa verde and perfectly melted jack cheese.
50 Glebe Rd, The Junction 2291
Muchos have been delivering delicious Mexican food to Newcastle locals for years! Their venue is full of vibrant decor and a traditional Mexican playlist which adds to the dining in experience.
Muchos cater for all spice tolerances, kids and big group bookings. They offer BYO wine and have a range of authentic Mexican beers! Muchos are renowned for their $12 combination nights, available on Monday and Wednesday where you enjoy a selection of tasty favourites at an irresistible price.
Try combination 59 which includes a juicy chicken taco, chilli relleno, flavourful vegetarian tostada and rice.
3. Beach Burrito
135 Darby St, Cooks Hill 2300
Situated on Darby Street in the heart of Newcastle is beach burrito. The perfect place to sink a few frozen margs and enjoy a belly full of Mexican food after a day at the beach. The venue features beautiful decor including retro surfboards, umbrellas and a cute courtyard area.
Beach Burrito offers awesome deals including Taco Tuesday!! Where you can grab any of their tasty tacos for only $3. My favourite is the Karate Chicken Taco which is packed with crunchy fried chicken, jalepeño slaw, cheese and jalepeño mayo paired with corn salsa.
