Situated within 10 minutes walk of central Tokyo station, on level 2 of the Tokia Building is Mucho Modern Mexicano. This casual dining restaurant focuses on atmosphere, taste and reasonably priced dishes, provided in a comfortable mucho Mexicano setting.
It is 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. As we approach the end of the year, it can also be extremely busy. This season is usually rife with 飲み会 (Nomikai – drinking parties) and 忘年会 (Bounenkai – end of year parties).
The staff at the restaurant are 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.
