A Taste of Mexico in Tel Aviv


The lively restaurant Mexicana serves up wide-ranging tastes of a cuisine that has been designated a world treasure, starting with lip-smacking margaritas.

One place in Tel Aviv people gather to enjoy Mexican food is Mexicana, a cheerfully decorated restaurant with colorful wooden chairs indoors and plenty of al fresco seating at the busy corner of Ben Yehudah and Bograshov Streets.

The menu actually reflects both Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine, that fusion from the American Southwest bordering its neighbor across the border. According to the restaurant’s manager, the chef travels once a year to Mexico in order to refresh menu offerings.

The menus themselves are in Hebrew and English, and display symbols for items that are vegan (or have a vegan option), vegetarian, or gluten free. There are also red chili pepper icons indicating spicy and even very spicy; just bear in mind that degree of heat is in the mouth of the beholder: I myself did not always agree with the menu’s designations.
