5 Of The Most Delicious Mexican Joints In Dubai

Mexican Food

Burritos, tacos, nachos, fajitas, enchiladas - it's all good. And with Mexican food experiencing a bit of a surge in popularity (particularly in the Lovin Dubai HQ), we thought it worth listing out some of the best joints around town.

1. Loca, Souk Al Bahar

A lively bar and Mexican joint, the food is hearty and delicious here and we can't get enough of the guacamole that's made in front of your eyes.

Plus if you head to the Souk Al Bahar branch (Loca 2.0), you'll get a view of the Dubai Fountains while sipping on your margarita. 

It's basically the ultimate tourist dinner...or date night.

2. Chalco's, JLT 

This hole-in-the-wall eatery does the Cali-Mexi style dishes fast and fresh. The prices are good, and the burrito bowls are one of our favourite lunch options.

3. Poco Loco, The Beach

Okay it's not strictly Mexican, but the soft-tacos are divine AND there's an all-you-can-eat taco night on Tuesday. 

Be sure to try the tres leches (three milk cake) dessert too - it'll change your life.

4. Taqado, multiple locations

Fast food Mexican that works. Also, they do a breakfast burrito - whatta way to start the day! 

5. Zoco, Al Habtoor City

Perhaps one of Dubai's lesser-known outlets, Zoco is a newish resto that does a fine-dining style Mexican. 

The decor is trendy and the food is light and tasty, and a little bit fancy.
