About El Burro

Dressed in vivid pink walls, plush leather booths, ambient lampshades and Mexican art, El Burro steers away from the traditional Mexican décor into a more sophisticated Mexican experience.

Located along the Green Point strip, diners enjoy a myriad of Mexican pleasures ranging from ceviche, which is made with the fish of the day and bursts of lime, coriander, chilli and pickled red onion.

Mains include a chocolate mole, the national dish of Mexico, as well as an array of soft corn tacos filled with chilli-battered line fish and braised short rib served with a spread of fresh guacamole, smoked and fresh chilli sauce, salsa and sour cream.

Dine within the mood-enhancing interior or enjoy the balmy summer sun alfresco on the balcony.

Cape Town doesn't have enough authentic Mexican (as opposed to Tex-Mex), so it is good to see some traditional Mexican options. The décor was excellent and the choice and variety on the menu was superb. I was very happy to find out that they offer mole, although I did find that that most of the food was quite mild and not quite spicy enough for me. Great tacos though, and lots of interesting options to choose from, including goat. Service wasn't the greatest, however if you're in the mood for Mexican you really can't go wrong with this one.
