We introduce a novel class of stable lattice solitons with a complex phase structure composed of many single-charge discrete vortices in a triangular photonic lattice. We demonstrate that such nonlinear self-trapped states are linked to the resonant Bloch modes, which bear a honeycomb pattern of phase dislocations.
