Shanghai has a surprising number of delicious, authentic and utterly irresistible Mexican and Tex-Mex eateries. With the heavenly Tequila bar and margarita creations of Cantina Agave to the surprisingly good cuisine of Zapata's.
And, if you aren't in the mood for the authentic, you'll find the more Americanized versions of Mexican food at Blue Frog, Element Fresh, Southern Belle and KABB. The Nachos are especially scrumptious at all but Blue Frog's fajitas are fantastic. My mouth waters at the mere thought!
