Burritos, tacos, enchiladas… just thinking about Mexican food makes our mouths watering. While going to Mexico would be the best thing to do in this case, the easier solution is for sure to head out to one of the many Mexican restaurants here in Vienna. While finding good food seems to be easy in a big city, sometimes the real treasures are quite hidden and cannot be found on any “Best …”-lists. That´s how it also is with Mexican restaurants. However, we kept our eyes and ears open, taste-tested, asked friends and family and can now proudly present the best places in Vienna. ¡Que aproveche!
1. TACO TANTE
Taco Tante in the first district is run by Jennifer Salchenegger. Located directly in the city center, this restaurant offers tacos, burritos and nachos, but also steaks and burgers. The industrial interior design is chic and the selection of cocktails amazing. If you happen to be around Johannesgasse, make sure to check Taco Tante out.
2. LOS MEXIKAS
Los Mexikas is a really traditional Mexican restaurant. Chef Mauricio Aceves Omana serves totopos, huaraches, tacos, enchiladas and everything you´d expect from an authentic Mexican restaurant. They have two locations, the Taquería in the eighth district and the Antojitos in the second district. So, choose what is closer to your home and enjoy some real Mexican food.
Más (Spanish for more) is a restaurant located in the eighth district and offers a big selection of Mexican food. You will get albóndigas (meatballs), corn soup, fajitas, burgers, churros and flan and for sure have a hard time choosing since the menu is huge and everything extremely delicious.
Santos is another recommendation we often get when asking for good Mexican restaurants. The menu includes salads and soups, traditional food, street food, burgers, ribs and steaks. Oh, and can we please talk about the cocktails? Blueberry basil margarita, chili mojito and raspberry thyme smash sound like heaven to us! By the way, there are three locations; in the fourth, seventh and fifteenth district.
5. DOÑA IRMA
Located in the third district, Doña Irma captivates with its colourful interior, the authentic dishes and the many vegetarian, vegan and glutenfree options. There is also a cocktail happy hour each day and we would highly recommend getting one.
