A recent addition to your Burleigh Heads dining options, California Tacos opened it’s doors for the first time in February 2014.
The result: the Baja Californian style food proved to be so popular that three days of supplies were used up within just a few hours. Success!
It’s always good to see something a little different, and authentic too. This place is owned by two Mexican-Americans who learned their trade in Tijuana, Mexico.
The main focus – as you might expect from the name – is on tacos. The tortillas are handmade in-house from corn or regular flour, and gluten-free is also available.
There are beef, chicken, pork, fish and vegetarian options, all topped with salsa fresca. Guacamole and corn-chip/salsa sides are available as is the regionally appropriate “Surf Style” which consists of pinto beans with melted cheese.
There are a few other dishes on the menu including quesadilla and ceviche, as well as a variety of different salsas, including the intriguing mango/pineapple/capsicum combination.
The place has a very friendly, informal vibe and the owners seem to have gotten it exactly right from the very start.
California Tacos is located at 1/1718 Gold Coast Highway in Burleigh Heads. Telephone (07) 5518 4043. Website
