Who knew a vegan Mexican restaurant with a Japanese twist existed? Calle Rey in Newtown is a unique vegan restaurant with delicious food.
The watermelon tuna tartare was an unexpected favourite of mine; it's fascinating how the slow-cooked watermelon mimics the texture of tuna. The dish comes with avo and cucumber, which you can eat all together on a corn chip.
I’ve tried 3 types of taco during my visit: The smoked chicken, Fable carnitas, and the California roll taco. Each one has its own unique flavour profile, but if I had to pick my favourite, it would be the Japanese-Mexican fusion of the California roll taco. The contrasting texture of cream cheese and crispy prawn in a taco is unexpected and delicious.
If you happen to visit on a Taco Tuesday, you can get their taco for just $5 each which is amazing value considering the quality.
