So, grab your sombrero (metaphorically, of course) and let’s embark on a culinary adventure through Prague’s Mexican food scene.
Best Choices for Mexican Food in Prague
Agave: This sleek restaurant helmed by a Southern Californian chef redefines Mexican fine dining. Think Baja-style fish tacos with chipotle aioli or mole poblano-braised duck tacos. It’s pure magic for tacos lovers!
Cantina: A Prague institution, Cantina is a festive fiesta come to life. Lively music, generously portioned enchiladas, and margaritas served in giant sombreros transport you straight to south-of-the-border bliss.
Las Adelitas: This Tex-Mex chain offers a familiar and comforting Mexican experience. Their guacamole is chunky and fresh, the fajitas sizzle with juicy goodness, and the margaritas are always on point.
Alebrijes Cocina Mexicana: Craving something truly unique? Alebrijes serves Oaxacan cuisine, a lesser-known but incredibly flavorful regional Mexican cooking style. Their tlayudas (giant tlayudas topped with meats, cheeses, and veggies) are a must-try. I love Oaxacan cuisine so for sure give this place a try!
