¡Vamos! these are the best mexican restaurants in amsterdam!
Mexico, the country of white beaches, spicy tequilas and sombreros. And the homeland of tortillas, enchiladas, nachos and burritos. Yes, we love Mexico! But because it’s a bit far to go there for dinner, we bring Mexico closer to home. In this new list we share our 6 x favourite Mexican restaurants in Amsterdam with you.
ROSES CANTINA >> mexican RESTAURANTS IN AMSTERDAM
In one of the most buzzing streets of Amsterdam, the Reguliersdwarsstraat, you find Roses Cantina. A restaurant and cocktailbar with Mexican cuisine. Gazpachos, tacos, empanadas, ceviches and steaks, they just got it all. Our favourite? The ceviche acapulco goes tokyo!
Rose’s Cantina is waiting for you >>
salsa shop >> mexican restaurants in amsterdam
The concept of the Salsa Shop is simple: choose the dish (tacos, burrito, salad or burrito bowl), choose chicken, steak, shredded beef, veggies or shredded pork, a homemade salsa (the chipotle is a spicy must try!) and veggies and greens to top it of. Within no time you created a custom Mexican meal! On several locations in town!
