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.
10) On the Border
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.
I sometimes go with a group and we always get the sampler which has 4 quesadillas, 4 flautas, 4 loaded nachos, salsa, sour cream, guacamole, and a cheese dip. You get also get gread combos like this….
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.
