There are tons of international restaurants in Munich sometimes offering true specialities from their respective countries but at times also some poor imitations… How do you usually make the difference? Well one of the things we’ve all heard once (and certainly considered as valuable information) is something around the lines of “this Japanese place is really good, plus it’s always full of Japanese people!”

We definitely think this is useful information and would like to share with you in our new category Melting Pot, where expats from all around the world go in Munich to have food from home. Today it’s Mexico’s turn… Meet Ana Maria! We hope you find it useful!

1. What’s your name?
Ana Maria E.

2. Where are you from and how long have been living in Munich?
Mexico City, Mexico. I have been living in Munich for almost 4 years now.

3. What do you do in Munich?
Teacher :)

4. What is important for you in a restaurant (good food, good service, great decoration, cheap prices)?
It’s all about the taste! And I like when food is prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients as well.

5. What is your favorite restaurant or café in Munich? Where do you go in Munich to eat food from your home country?
I’m a fan of Burger House, I heard the cook is Mexican as well. And to eat good Mexican food, I really like Milagros and El Patio. If you like a burrito for lunch, I would recommend you to go to Condesa.

6. In 3 lines, why do you like it so much and why would you recommend fffoood.com readers to go there? Any specific meal you recommend?
Mexico is one of those countries, where you don’t need to tell about its cultural & historical heritage, and food that is actually registered as Unesco World Heritage. For a great and festive dinner, bring your friends to Milagros, close to Viktualenmarkt! They always use fresh products (I like to believe they all come from the market) and prepare good fajitas, enchiladas and tacos. If you are a “Mexican food beginner”, you can order the “salsas Mexicanas” mix and enjoy different sauces with really nice tacos. The meat is always good prepared too! The menu is really complete, for the drinks as well, and the deco makes it all more real, even if some people could find it a bit cheesy (what Mexican people love anyways). Buen provecho!

Attracted by Mexican wonders – the sweet one is a quesadilla-addict – fresh margaritas and a really nice website that you can find here, we also went to Milagros to enjoy a good dinner and took some pictures. The staff is really friendly (as all our Mexican friends) and we were very happy with the dishes we ordered. The ceviche (starter with fresh tomatoes and shrimps) was really fresh and well seasonned. Insider tipp: go to the toilets and improve your Spanish! Enjoy gringos:
