11 x the best tacos in Amsterdam you want to try

the best taco’s in amsterdam in a row!

Where can you get the best taco’s in Amsterdam? Because, as fish in the new chicken, taco’s are the new burgers. Taqueria’s are popping up all over Amsterdam just as the fish restaurants are. At  Yourlbb we love Mexican food so we’re very happy with this new trend. That’s why it was about time for a list with 11 x the best taco’s in Amsterdam!


Calle Ocho: The menu changes every week at Calle Ocho on the Albert Cuyp, but one thing is for sure: the delicious tacos are always waiting for you. With beef, fish or other variants. And at Calle Ocho you cannot forget the cocktails. On weekdays even open till 03:00 hrs, ¡Qué bueno!

Chiapas Taco Cartel: Chiapas is one of those brand new taquerías in town. And you can see that. Everything here makes sense. Besides delicious tacos there are also other Mexican streetfood on the menu, like burritos. But not just the food is a feast here, the interior as well. Can we take that purple wall and brick floor, por favor?

Louie Louie: The men behind Louie Louie – you know, also the men behind Bukowski, de Biertuin and Smokin’ Barrels – have again understood their job in a very right way. Louie Louie is a super hip hangout where the interior as well has gotten a touch of South-American influences. So also on the menu you’ll see taco’s with chicken, beef, cod and other snacks. Yum!

Huis van López: When talking about international cuisines, De Clercq almost has it all: Flemish-Limburg cuisine at Fier, Italian at Pazzi and American at the Rotisserie. But the Latin-American cuisine was missing and that’s where Huis van López fills the gap. All the dishes and snacks are not only very tasty, but look great as well!

Taqueria Tacobar: If I say avacado fries, tortialla chips and guacamole to go with your fish, pork, beef, chicken or vegetarian taco, does your mouth starts watering as well? At Taquería Tacobar it’s all about taco’s and as the cherry on top they also serve delicious cocktails. Extra plus: it’s affordable as well!

Mexico Boulevard: On the Rijnstraat you’ll find a real Mexican oasis: Mexico Boulevard. All the dishes are prepared according to the Mexican slow food recipe. And the result: delicious dishes like taco’s with marinated arrachera.

Salsa Shop:This one cannot be missed on this list, because it’s one of Anne’s faves: the Salsa Shop. This the place you’ll go to for the best take-out Mexican gourmet fastfood. You can compose your tacos and burritos just the way you like it and all is made from fresh ingredients. Besides their location in De Pijp  and the city centre there’s one at Central Station now as well!

Bar Bra: Okay, this one isn’t a true taqueria, but here they understand the desire for tacos as well. Because every Tuesday Bar Bra celebrates Taco Tuesday. So that means fiesta! The tacos are made by Best Coast Taqueria, which is specialised in the very best tacos. Tuesday Bar Bra it is!

Tomatillo: Another taco take-out that cannot be missed. Because Tomatillo delivers you the best tacos, straight at your front door. Besides their delicious tacos, they also have plenty of choice in quesadillas, burritos, tostadas and fajitas. And yes, all is very tasty!

Los Pilones: With locations in the Leidsebuurt, Jordaan, Nieuwmarkt and Kerkstraat the tacos of Los Pilones are well represented in the city centre of Amsterdam. I found their location in the Jordaan the most cosy one, but their spot on Nieuwmarkt is already known as the taqueria. Anyhow, it doesn’t matter where you go, your loyalty card for margaritas is valid everywhere.

Rose’s Cantina:At Rose’s Cantina no tacu Tuesday, but just Margarita Monday. Works for us! And of course you order a delicious taco as well. Do you go for the meat, vegetarian or weekly variant? Not into tacos? They also serve the best ceviche and enchiladas here!
