Calaveras is located right next to Newtown Station and if you love cocktails and Mexican food then you're in for a treat. I love a good cocktail and wearing Mexican hats.

I head here with the True Local Reviewers on a True Local Food Safari. I notice lots of fun hats on the tables of Calaveras. I like Mexican food because there's always crunchy textures with guac and lots of cheese.
I also try the Calaveras Huitlacoche Y Hongos quesadilla ($15, below) which has black corn truffle with mixed grilled veggies and mozzarella.
The food is quite nice however the portions are a bit smaller than other Mexican restaurants. Save your calories for the drinks. They have some pretty awesome drinks.
Overall, Calaveras has a pretty relaxing atmosphere. The cocktails are flowing and everyone at the True Local event is pretty chill. Calaveras is a nice spot for a drink and some Mexican snacks.
