If your familiarity with Mexican bars starts with cheap tequila and ends with a splitting headache, let Lacalaca Cantina Mexicana help erase all that regret with a fun, authentic concept, transported from the heart of Tijuana to the shores of Bali.
The salsas are made daily, fish is market fresh and they pay great attention to detail when they braise their select cuts of beef, lamb and pork. We recommend that you share as many dishes as possible so can experience the depth of delicious flavours and fully enjoy the Lacalaca experience.
The beer is cold, the sangria flows and the cocktails are made with only the freshest fruits, herbs, quality booze and crystal ice chunks.
Lacalaca is a true cantina, with a self-serve bar slinging casual and custom-assembled food. Don’t bet the tab on walking in without a reservation, however. (Apr 2016)
“An upbeat dining and party venue that really gets rocking when the tequila takes hold” -FRV Travel
“Lacalaca veers more towards authentic Mexican cuisine made with fresh local and imported ingredients and zesty sauces that will keep you coming back for more” -Ultimate Bali
“Mexican Cantina territory tucked off a main shopping drag – that’s why we love Bali. We are not talking nasty cheesy nachos with lobs of cream – this is light and fresh, contemporary South West cuisine. Think lamb shank soft tacos and crab meat quesadillas just for starters. Cheap, excellent food and the cocktails are fabulous.” -Food On Tap Australia
“Don’t miss out on the Margarita menu. The cocktail bar is the perfect place to hang out, or for privacy, grab a bar table and peruse the menu, or heck, just stay for dinner, after a few of these you won’t be in a hurry to leave.” -The Yak “Inject a serious dose of cheer into your night with a stop at Lacalaca, where bright pinks, blues, oranges and yellows conspire to light up the one-floor, partly open-air cantina… A three-cheese roasted zucchini and oregano quesadilla definitely hits the spot.” -Travel + Leisure
