Best Mexican Restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh
Get your fill of tacos and tequila at these hitlisted Mexican restaurants
It’s a game of two halves, as the man once said. Edinburgh’s Mexican restaurants can be split into the pleasingly familiar, dedicated to the art of folding, filling, frying and baking tortillas around your choice of fillings, accompanied by a jug of Margarita and a party atmosphere; and a new wave of small, street-food focused places which have the soft taco, the bespoke cocktail and punchy hot flavours at their heart. Over in Glasgow, recent years have seen the introduction of regional and Caribbean variations, a more varied approach to the cuisine and subtle new flavours. But some good places have come and gone already – hopefully the city can support the remaining stalwarts and encourage them on to even greater things.
