Mexcian foodWe lived in California for a number of years. The city where we lived had a high population of Mexicans and we worked with some feisty ones who challenged us with different dishes. We love Mexican food, so to say we really miss it here, is an understatement. However, when we do discover a great Mexican stop off point, we are ready comer (to eat).

This is new addition and we have not tested it yet.

They opened in April of 2013, but they have already opened two new locations, also near us. They have a steady stream of guests checking out the food. I love the burritos and the pork sandwich. Great prices too.

This is a new edition for us anyway. We just found this great place recently. The decor is fun and lively. The staff speaks English well. The burritos we had were so yummy, if they were not the size of a small submarine, I could have eaten two of them.

This seems to be Mexican with a touch of Hungarian. Each time we have been here, the service is slow contrary to the name of the restaurant, one order cooked at a time. Yet, we have returned, because it is worth the wait. Fajitas, burritos (my favorite), quesadillas, and tacos.

Arriba Taqueria
Address: VI. Teréz körút 25
Telephone: 374-0057
Hours: Daily 11am to midnight
www.arriba.hu

They have one of my favorite burritos: carnitas. There is a variety of meat choices, vegetarian, and UGH fish tacos. This is better than Taco Bell, but not as authentic as the others.

Iguana
Address: V. Zoltán u. 16
Telephone: 331-4352
Hours: Daily 11:30am to 1am
www.iguana.hu

This may be the best known Mexican restaurant in the city, it probably is because it draws the ExPats who miss REAL Mexican food. The pickings here are Tex-Mex, not authentically Mexican. In a pinch it will do, but they do make a good margarita. If you need something to do on Cinco de Mayo, this is the place to be.
