3 Abbey Street Lower, Millenium Walkway & 73-83 South Great George’s Street
The casual mexican burrito bar is now a favourite for food on the move and a casual lunch/dinner with friends. Boojum arrived on the scene in 2007 as one of the most disruptive food concepts to hit the high street in a long time. Their menu is simple and has changed little since they opened. They focus on burritos, tacos and a small number of other traditional Mexican street dishes.
4 Clarendon Market, 14-18 Aston Quay, 131 Baggot Street Lower & 32 Dawson Street
Having four ‘Casas’ within the city, Pablo Picante has an animated environment for quick-stop Mexican burritos served with the minimum of fuss and maximum taste. With many awards under its belt – Pablos Torta House (Gourmet Mexican Sandwich) on Clarendon Market is an absolute must.
21 Suffolk Street & 38 Baggot Street Upper
Having 4 locations within the city, Tolteca Mexican Style Grill, is a popular place to dine. Offering Salads, Fajitas and tacos, the menu might not be extensive, but what they do they do really well.
143 Baggot Street Lower
The now infamous ‘party tavern’ is much more than just a spot for an after-hours boogie. Their menu is extensive and innovative and their one of the best places in the city for authentic Mexican food. Their tostados and taquitos (soft & crispy corn tortillas) are an absolute must, along with their lethal bulldogs – frozen magarita mixed with a bottle of desperados!
The casual Taqueria has grown from strength to strength since it’s opening in 2018. It’s menu is small but what they do, they do very very well. They have a selection of tacos, as well as quesadillas and sides. The staff are super friendly and it’s not too harsh on your pocket either. The perfect spot for a taste of authentic Mexican tacos.
