Tucked in to a hole-in-the-wall walkway on King’s Way (Durbar Marg) is the second place in town to bill itself as a Mexican Restaurant. Appropriately called “Taco’s & Burritos,” this snack-shack offers up on-the-spot-made mexi-snacks familiar to those who grace the doorways of Chipotle and Baja-Fresh in the You-Ess-of-Aay.20120309-171919.jpg
Finding the signage on Durbar Marg can be challenging as always, just look for the small white signage with “Tacos and Burritos”, duck in to the walkway, and then squeeze in to the 3 meter by 2 meter space. Order up! The two-sided laminated menu lists the regulars; I recommend the soft tacos and fresh guacamole and chips.20120309-171928.jpg
Seating is limited to soft diner stools and counter-top eating, so larger parties (10+) may not fit.
The best part about this place, aside from the excellent food, is the service. The owner is RIGHT THERE, making your food along side his cooks, and at least in these early days, is taking suggestions.20120309-171933.jpg
I hope this place isn’t open late, because it wouldn’t be too hard to stop in after a Thamel bender to satisfy a craving…20120309-171944.jpg

This is it, the one place to get Mexican in Kathmandu. Not bad, considering it’s Arizona/New Mexican style Mexican either! These guys make their own corn tortilla chips and taco shells, so they are amazing of course. If you’re hankering for a standard dish of enchiladas or hard/soft shell tacos, it’s there. A massive stuffed burrito (the stuffed gringo) is the heartiest of dishes. You can even custom order a burrito with the plastic menu/dry erase marker combo! Last but not least, you MUST order the sopapillas (with honey, I implore you) with your meal a-la New Mexican style. *Get anything but the mild salsa, simply too mild.
Parking on the street at your own risk, no wifi but they DO have a western toilet.
