Situated within 10 minutes walk of central Tokyo station, on level 2 of the Tokia Building, Mucho Modern Mexicano is a casual dining restaurant that focuses on atmosphere, taste and reasonably priced dishes, provided in a comfortable setting.
One of 4 similarly themed Mexican restaurants situated throughout the various and colorful districts of Tokyo, Mucho Modern Mexicano is the dressed down, easy going and more comfy personality of his group.
Whether on weekdays or weekends, I would recommend reserving a table as the seats fill up very quickly. Even if you head in early from 6pm onward, I always seem to find myself seated among a small crowd. Especially as we approach the end of the year, which is rife with 飲み会 (Nomikai – drinking parties) and 忘年会 (Bounenkai – end of year parties) happening all the way up to the year’s end.
The staff at the restaurant is friendly, and as you enter there is a welcoming smile waiting to greet you. Usually, they are always hovering around from one table to the next, so it is easy to get their attention when you to order. The wooden shaped stools and tables, colorful bar and bright lights are all in tune with the Mexican theme too.
Lunch begins at 11am from 1000 yen on weekdays or weekends from 1600 yen, where you have an assortment of choices from their classic Tacos, Burritos, Fajitas, their daily special and more. The set menus also include soup and a free drink.
Dinner is a lot more flexible, as you are presented with a range of choices including Guacamole where you can usually select your own avocado, and they will make the concoction in from of you. Tacos start at 700 yen for 2, plus 350 yen each for extras, or you can choose from Fajitas, Burritos and more where you have a choice of one of their famous fillings. Finally, they have a range of salads and appetizers starting at 300 yen.
Drinks are also in theme with your classic range of Mexican inspired mix’s starting at 500 yen, this includes Mojitos, Margaritas and Pina Coladas. Beer includes the very famous Corona or Sol (550 yen), with a selection of Japanese and other international brands. They also serve special versions of their Frozen Margarita and Sangria, available in a choice of sizes.
