10 popular Mexican joints in Mumbai city

When you get served large batter fried Chilies stuffed with cheese or meat (Chilies Renellos, a Mexican favorite) for main course, either you are in Mexico or relishing food at a Mexican restaurant. This zesty cuisine is a fiesta of flavours and favors native ingredients like corn, beans and chili peppers along with Spanish influences like variety of lean meats, cheese and fresh herbs. The Mexicans love dishes made in robust sauces and add salsa or a pickled chili on the side in absence of it. If your tongue can take a little heat we urge you to try this amazing cuisine and calm your taste buds with a chilled margarita or in hand. 

But where do I find a good Mexican restaurant in Mumbai? Do not worry. Sit back and relax as Wicked Spoon Confessions lists 10 popular Mexican joints in Mumbai city.

  1. Sancho’s - Located at Khar, Sancho’s is spacious with neatly divided air-conditioned indoor area and al-fresco area. The bar serves a variety of cocktails, tequila, mocktails but our favorite is Michelada (a popular Mexican beer cocktail) The kitchen that serves Tex-Mex cuisine is equally good.

  7. Quattro Ristorante - “Chilies Renellos”, the dish we spoke about earlier, is a must try at Quattro Ristorante, one of Mumbai’s only vegetarian restaurant. The menu is split equally between Italian and Mexican fare but we have tried more of Mexican dishes here. One of the few only vegetarian restaurant in the city that also pleases with molecular gastronomy. Visit the Lower Parel or the Ghatkopar outlet as per choice.

  8. Taco Bell - This fast growing Mexican Fast food chain satiates your cravings with tacos, burritos, quesadillas and more…but digging into the seven layer chicken burrito is what we love.  The outlets are cheery but housed mostly in malls. The counter staff is friendly and the prices will make you break into dance routine. Just head to Oberoi, R City or Viviana Mall.
  9.  Loco Chino - If you want to eat your heart out head to Loco Chino tucked away in two busy lanes in Bandra or Peddar road. Fuss free interiors, simple cutlery and reasonable prices works in the favor of this Tex-mex eatery. Try some desserts while you are at it. Choosing between churros or Tres Leches might prove difficult.
