Get your fill of tacos and tequila at these hitlisted Mexican restaurants
Classic Tex-Mex favourites remain plentiful, but the capital's Mexican scene has taken a turn for the adventurous in recent years. Tacos play a starring role and street food eateries are burgeoning if you need a burrito fix in a hurry. Tequila makes a high-end impact too, with creative cocktails and marvellous mezcals shining on drinks menus.
Both branches of this tiny taqueria offer fabulous contemporary Mexican cuisine; TollX serves a distinctive cocktail menu and Elm Row is great for BYOB.
El Cartel Casera Mexicana
Fresh, fun and funky cantina focusing on tacos, with a few choice sides, delicious cocktails and craft beers.
