NileGuide Expert tip:
Note the little red time-bomb symbols next to the listed dishes. The more there are, the stronger the chili.
Amber, lilac, crimson, marigold… this has to be one of Lisbon's most colourful restaurant interiors. The bright, brash paintwork positively glows and imbues the place with a warmth and vitality typical of the Latin American temperament. The walls are decorated with filigree ironwork and Atzec motifs – indigenous handicraft that further enlivens the atmosphere. The hues match the food: hot, spicy and decadent. Casa México has been serving authentic Mexican cuisine since 1994 and enjoys a loyal clientele. The menu trumpets Mexico's culinary tradition. They are all here – nachos, enchiladas, burritos and tacos. Beef and chicken dishes feature heavily, but the kitchen also rustles up delicious prawn-based options. There are even a couple of vegetarian choices. That good old Tex-Mex standby chilli con carne is served extra hot and is best diluted with a bottle of Mexican beer. But you might want to sample one of their Margaritas first. © NileGuide20011
The best Mexican food, like the Enchiladas, the Tacos or the Burritos, Casa México has it all. The decor follows a typical Mexican style, simple, but still very charming for all those that love the Central American culture. The prices are very reasonable.
