2. Zacatecas


This Mexican restaurant in Medellin has three branches and is a type of restaurant that serves no-nonsense, affordable Mexican food. What we mean by that is that the restaurant is not fancy and mainly focuses on serving tasty food and having a good service. Don’t get me wrong, the restaurants look inviting, but it’s so popular because of the food they serve. The specialities of the house are the main reason why you should visit this place, with the Tampiqueña (26,900 COP) as a highlight. Of course, you can order all the typical dishes you’d expect at a Mexican restaurant including their tasty Burro de Carne de Res (24,900 COP). All dishes are served with four different sauces, including an extremely spicy sauce. Most dishes on the menu costs around 25,000 COP, so this place definitely won’t break the bank. Zacatecas has two branches in Laureles and one in Envigado.

3. Emiliano La Taqueria 


Located opposite the Arkadia Centro Comercial (shopping mall) is this tiny, open-air Mexican restaurant named Emiliano La Taqueria. This is the kind of place you go to grab a few cold beers with friends and enjoy Mexican food for a bargain. The menu of Emiliano La Taqueria is limited, as their speciality are the tacos, but you can find typical Mexican dishes such as Fajitas de Pollo (17,500 COP) and Quesadilla Gringa (13,900 COP) as well. You can choose between ten different tacos and we recommend you try their Tacos de Carnitas Michoacanas Surtida (12,900 COP), which is a plate of three tacos with shredded meat and pico de gallo. The tacos come with four different sauces and limes to spice things up.
