Where to enjoy Mexican soul food in Dubai.
Our friends all know how much we adored the taqueria in Business Bay that sadly closed down. We have good news to share, there is now a brand new spot in town brought to us by the same friendly faces along with the Bystro Group-a winning combination!
El Mostacho is a canteen style 13-seater eatery in Jumeirah Lake Towers that pays homage to Mexican cuisine and culture. The décor has a traditional Mexican vibe with vintage Latino posters and nostalgic knick knacks. The menu features Mexican soul food classics like tacos and agua fresca.
The guacamole is fresh and flavourful that you can enjoy with a side of homemade salsa and tortilla chips while waiting for the tacos arrive.
The main attraction is the corn tacos with a choice of fillings. You can pick from barbacoa (slow cooked beef), carne asada (grilled steak), baja pescado (fish), tinga de pollo (shredded chicken), lengua (slow cooked beef tongue), and hongos con maiz (marinated portobello). We ordered one of each and although they were all fully loaded and delicious, the barbacoa is our absolute favourite.
We downed our meal with a refreshing homemade watermelon juice.
El Mostacho offers that authentic taqueria experience that we were longing for in Dubai.
