The Funky Mexican Cantina Celebrates Mexican Independence Day

We were down at Raby Bay Marina (next to Cleveland Station) for the Twilight Makers Market which is held once a month. We were hungry and decided to have something substantial to eat and I felt like Mexican so headed for The Funky Mexican Cantina. Little did we know that it was Mexican Independence Day! A fantastic vibe with music from a Mexican band floating through the cantina.

We are served a complimentary salsa with corn chips which we dig into hungrily.   Funky Mexican Cantina celebrates Mexican Independence Day We are seated outside, lucky to find a table as the others were already booked out. I took some panorama photos to show the interiors. I love the interior decor. Wonderful vibrant colours reminiscent of Mexico.

It includes Chicken, Calamari, Fish, Untitled I ask the staff to pose for some photos. Unfortunately the lighting was bad so the quality isn't the best. I just love her costume!

Below is a video I created showing some of the smoke rising from the chimney of the mushroom house. So cute!
