Mexican food is so different from your usual butter chicken and naan or hyderabadi biryani or daal baati. Have you tasted the spices and flavours that just ooze out of a beautiful burrito wrap you just bit into or the crisp nachos with a cheesy guacamole sauce waiting to be picked up from the plate? Maybe you prefer Empanadas or a nice Quesadilla or some Fajitas? Are you hungry yet? Have we got you doing the salsa while looking for some true blue Mexicano food in Aamchi Mumbai? Read on for our favourite 5.
1. Aye Dios Mio
What – Veggie friendly Mexican food
Hard to find this little place; remember to keep alert as you get near the vicinity of Bombay Hospital. A small place without a lot of unnecessary flourish they make great Mexican as well as Italian food. One of those places where vegetarians have a plenty to choose from as do the jains.
2. Quattro Ristorante

Another veggie friendly restaurant, Quattro is known for its delectable Mexican food. While all they offer in the Mexican menus is just downright scrumptious do try the Fajitas and Enchiladas here if nothing else.
3. Tijuana Iguana
Where – Fort
What – Mexican pub foods
The right hand side of their menu weighs slightly on the higher side but if you’re looking for a place to chill with your friends on a Saturday night this is where you should be heading. There is a bar and the food is great and if you have a Snickers-tooth don’t leave without trying their ‘Simply Sinful Snickers Pie’.
Where – Khar
What – Quesadilla, Chimichangas
They are known for their perfectly brilliant preparations of Mexican food. So just have whatever suits your fancy. The one dish that you must not miss out on is the taco! Oh lovely taco and if you feel really hungry then get the nachos too! Delicious, just simply delicious.
5. Loco Chino
Where – Carter Road, Bandra
What – Custom Burrito
They serve awesome Mexican food and for those who are not fond of the nachos and the tacos they have great Chinese too. Mix it up or not but the food here will have you going – heads up Ricky Martin fans – ‘Loco, loco, loco’ for the food!
