It is perhaps no surprise that most Indians are in love with Mexican food, given the similarities between the two cuisines. Although not yet as wide-spread as Chinese restaurants, Bangalore has seen the opening up of quite a few eateries serving Mexican food in recent years, which is an indication of the increasingly popularity of this cuisine. So if you were looking for places to grab some authentic spicy beans, guacamole, or churros, you have quite a few options today. Here are our recommendations:
Chinita Real Mexican Food
What to try: Burrito Bowl, Enchiladas, Nachos, Churros, Chocolate Chilli Cake
As the name suggests, this place offers authentic Mexican fare prepared with fresh ingredients, and the first bite of food here is all the convincing you will need to keep visiting. The Burrito Bowl and Avocado Salad are favourites at Chinita, while the other options on the menu are just as good. A burst of flavour in every morsel is guaranteed! They have a decent dessert menu too; with Churros and Chocolate Chilli Cake being the highlights.
What to try: Guacamole, Enchiladas, Chimichangas
Serving Mexican and Tex-Mex food, Sanchez (previously called Sancho’s) pleases all palates with its excellent Guacamole, Burritos, and Chimichangas. Try the Churros if you want to end your meal on a sweet note. What makes dining here exciting is that the Guacamole, available in a variety of options, is prepared live before visitors – which means you can ask the chef to customise the chilli as per your taste.
What to try: P-O-T-A-T-O-E-S, Cheese Nachos, Tacos, Quesadillas
The name of this eatery may take you a while to get right, but the taste of their food is sure to linger for a long time. This is just the place for when you are looking for a bit more than just traditional Mexican fare. Nacho and Taco lovers will love the many options, and the Quesadilla have garnered good reviews too. But the one thing that you cannot miss is their P-O-T-A-T-O-E-S, a vegetarian wrap loaded with stuffing and flavour.
What to try: Quesadillas, Special Burrito Bowl
Perfect for a quick bite, California Burrito has outlets all over the city, just one of the reasons why Bangaloreans love this chain. With a crisp and short menu, the eatery offers just the right kind of food and at prices we love! Take your pick of Quesadillas or create your customised meal. For the base, you have options like Rice Bowl, Tacos, Salad, and Burrito that you can fill with a protein and toppings of your choice. The extras like Spicy Mayo and Guacamole are the perfect touch to anything you choose.
