mexicanfood
This is the updated rankings for the top 10 Mexican Restaurants in Seoul. A lot has changed in the last 3 years and many have closed down….but the Mexican food revolution is still going strong. Koreans love spicy food so this is why Indian and Mexican will never die in Seoul. Now don’t get me wrong..you can’t really compare these restaurants with the ones in California…the mecca of Mexican American food…but some can come close to…Chipotle level….also can we get a petition to get Chipotle into Korea?? Let’s make it happen. Here is the list…enjoy.

This is a huge family mexican restaurant in Seoul. I know for sure there is one in Rodeo near Apgujeong….one in Itaewon…Yeouido IFC MALL..and one in Illsan. I am sure there are more springing up. The menu is big as well. The servings are for Americans…huge portions! The taste is good as well, however after your 16th bite you kinda get sick of it real fast. When I go with a date I always get the taco combos and of course the guacamole live! It is really expensive 12,000 for small and 19,000 won for large. Here is how it looks like with the taco sets.

This place has really good fajitas and everyone in the restaurant will know you ordered it because it is crazy loud when they bring it out. Also they have a great selection of drinks and their most popular are the margaritas. Actually….this place might have the best margaritas in Seoul. Come here if you are hungry and make sure to bring a friend.

Top 10 restaurants in Apgujeong

These are my picks for top 10 restaurants in Apgujeong dong, Seoul, Korea.

10. DAN SUSHI – This is the best Japanese restaurant in Seoul that uses the rotating table setup to serve their sushi. You come in and you sit down and just start eating. Dishes go around in a circle and the prices are all different. You have to look at the color of the dishes to see which ones are cheap and which ones are expensive. Dan Sushi is as best as you can get. They have this cooked beef on rice which is awesome and their salmon with this cream white sauce is delicious. It could get expensive because the food is right there for you to grab and before you know it you have 30-40 plates on your table! Continue reading

Top 10 Mexican Restaurants in Seoul

These are my picks for the best Mexican restaurants in Seoul.

10. TACO RICO in Gangnam: This place makes the list because the food is being cooked by a real Mexican. So I was expecting a lot! Don’t expect too much. Some stuff are good like the nachos or the burritos. But the tacos are terrible. This place is a mixed bag. I hear good things as well as some bad things about this place. Also the location sucks. Good luck trying to find this place. My best advice. Get out exit 7 Gangnam Station and make a right at the first small street you see. Keep going up the hill until you can’t go anymore. Then turn right. The place has a open kitchen but the seating is very limited. Continue reading
