For Delicious Mexican Food in Tokyo, 'La Jolla' Can't be Beaten!
'La Jolla' is a small restaurant located near Shibuya's Hiro-o Station that serves wonderfully delicious Tex-Mex Cuisine just like that found in the southern United States! Considering its size, Tokyo has surprisingly few Mexican restaurants. However, La Jolla is among the very best that the city has to offer and is definitely worth a visit!
Serving Tex-Mex Food in Tokyo for 30 + Years!
Luckily, there are a few good places in the city that are there when you need them! One such place is called 'La Jolla,' located 5 minutes from Hiro-o Station in Shibuya-ku.
That being said, it's completely delicious!
The restaurant grows their own tomatillos and habanero and poblano peppers - ingredients that otherwise would have to be imported into Japan. The freshness of the ingredients shows, and the beautiful fragrance and sweetness of the peppers shine through in all of the sauces that adorn the various dishes.
For those who'd rather just enjoy a drink (Mexican beer and tequilla-based drinks such as margaritas are recommended), there's also a light menu of items such as tacos and ceviche which are a perfect complement to a tasty drink. The restaurant is small, but it's great for bringing your family or hanging out with friends after work.
