Depending on where you are in the world, all Mexican food is not created equal, but if you're in the Netherlands and have a craving for tequila and tacos, there are a couple places you can go. For good and even more important, authentic, Mexican food in Amsterdam, choose one of these spots.
This is Amsterdam's only authentic Mexican restaurant -- we're talking mole sauce, stewed beef dishes with a serious kick and 20 different types of tequila. It's also a refreshing alternative to the countless hungry-tourist traps in the Leidseplein area (there's also a location in the Jordaan neighborhood).
This is fresh Tex-Mex that won't break the bank, and according to the website, they even strive to use environmentally responsible ingredients whenever possible. The burritos, tacos, tostadas, and salads all sound delicious. And this might be the only place in Amsterdam where you'll find (fittingly) a real tomatillo salsa verde.
