So I am rating Tacos y Tequila with 4 stars because so far in Germany I have not found better Mexican. Coming from the states, I love Mexican food and the American/Mexican cuisine is completely different than the German/Mexican so probably my expectations are just different than if I would have grown up here.
I am a HUGE Nacho & tortilla chip fan, but unfortunately in Munich most places feel Tortilla chips should come with some powdery flavor on them that is absolutely appalling - not here. If you love tortilla chips this is the place for you because they have the best in Munich. I also really enjoyed the burritos but I wasn't a huge fan of the Tacos because I'm not the biggest soft corn tortilla fan.
Summary: If you're in the mood for Mexican and are living in Munich - I would recommend checking out Tacos y Tequila.
"Mehhhh. I've experienced better" is sadly the best way to describe Tacos y Tequila. In fact, I've found better Mexican right across the street at El Patio.
The first frustrating point was my happy hour cocktail. I ordered a jumbo margarita an HOUR before Happy Hour ended. However, my friend and I paid our bills after Happy Hour ended....thus, the server insisted I pay full price for my drink. 10 euro for a clearly pre-mixed drink. No thanks, I won't be ordering a margarita from there again.
Second let down was the portion to price ratio..... pitiful. My drink, entre, and tip cost me about 27euro and I was still hungry when I left. And by "still hungry" I mean I could have gone to McDonalds and ordered a full meal.
I had the chicken enchiladas and they were simply bland. My expectations for spiciness are obviously lower here than they would be back in the US, but come on....this is MEXICAN food! There was nothing redeeming about the enchiladas to be honest.
Although, Tacos y Tequila was a bit of a bummer, I still think you can find great Mexican in Munich. Like I said...just walk across the street and have your mind blown :)
After living near Sunset Park in Brooklyn for last few years, it's a tall order for any place to live up to the standards that have been set by the taquerias in Brooklyn. Tacos y Tequila have done well for themselves but there were a few missing basics that should be reconsidered:
1. Lenguas: steamed or smoked tongue. In a meat-oriented city liked Munich, this is essential!
2. Radish and lime. Also essential for any taco.
3. Sauces. Need some on the side, including pickled onions with habeneros.
4. Fantastic cocktails!!! Me gusta mucho!
This was one of the first Mexican places I went to in Munich and was slightly disappointed, however maybe my standards were too high (hailing from Colorado, home of some great Mexican food!)
I had the chicken burrito, which was pretty good, but not 15 euros good. I know Munich is expensive, but give me a break! The cocktails were also pretty good, which bumped the rating up to 3 stars.
Stopped in to try their margarita during happy hour Jumbo size (about
20 oz) for 8.50 Eur. It was better than most ritas in Germany but could
be better. Tasted more artificial mix rather than real lime juice.
Didn't order any food as it looked way overpriced, but it smelled good,
and the servers were multilingual and friendly.
