Mexican on the go
La Cantina serves up Mexican fare on wheels, and judging from the fact that it has been around for more than a year now, the people of Adelaide have taken to them quite well.

Priding itself as a Mexican street kitchen, they are distinguishable with their orange mobile "HQ".

What actually adds to the charm of this food truck is that the menu is handwritten with chalk, on a panel which looks like it got taken out of an antique store.

As per the menu itself, when La Cantina first began, they offered tacos, burritos and quesadillas in beef, chicken, pork and vegetable flavours. A year on, that menu has remained constant, reflecting an " if it ain't broke, why fix it?" principle.

On an overcast day, a warm, zesty Mexican lunch makes a very attractive option, as I went for an $8 beef burrito.

A spiced beef chorizo, wrapped in a tortilla drowned in black beans, Pico de gallo and guacamole, made for a quick meal full of flavour and spice. It thought me a thing or two about not judging things by its appearance, as the burrito looked mild and modest at first sight.

A regular in events across Adelaide, they look set to be around for a long time. What makes each experience to La Cantina more interesting too is that their prices never quite stay the same.

So if you're looking for mobile Mexican fare that really feels and tastes Mexican, look no further than La Cantina.
