I'm from America, working in Hamburg for six months now and have yet to find a great mexican dining spot. Can someone please help me find a great mexican restaurant in Hamburg? Looking for a killer enchilada, gauc, and spit worthy hot sauce. Seems like this amazing food is not a popular town favorite here. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Qrito.de is THE BOMB for Burritos if you like chipotle etc.. I was just there and I think for beeing in europe burito was just 10 from 10

and people talk that this restaurant is good I havent tried it yet but sounds like good place to go and eat,... WWW.Cafemexico.de.

Totally agree. Finding good Mexican is difficult here. Just got back from a couple week stint in the US, ate mexican a half dozen times at least. I'm ready for more, so let me know when you find a good one, I'll do the same.

Cafe Mexico was a cute little joint with great food! Not the biggest selection but the enchilada and margarita tasted like a typcial Mexican place from the states...good luck! I'm the same way...craving good old Mexican food :)

I can also vouch for Qrito. I know of two, one on Mühlenkamp and one across from the Haspa on Grindelallee by Uni Hamburg. Pretty much like Qdoba and they have some funny things like American candy bar and HFCS Dr. Pepper (gotta say I miss it a little bit). I usually get the chicken california burrito for around 6,00 and it's ready in about 10 minutes or less. They even want to speak English too.

If the guy with the tats is still at Muhlenkamp, he is great to talk to. He is from Socal.

Yeah tor he still is. He's definitely cool. When I walked in something told me he wasn't totally Deutsch. I'm not sure if he's part owner or franchisee though. Man, now I'm really craving one.

Methinks a trip to HH is in order this weekend! *drool*

 

Is the food there REALLY hot? I like to burn the taste buds right off my tongue...I use Tabasco sauce instead of ketchup and that even barely registers a 0.1 on my burn-o-meter.

Magster,

 

you should go to spicy's gewurzmuseum in the Speicherstadt part of Hamburg. Neat little place and you can buy some spices there. Not sure how hot you can buy them but the history is pretty cool.

thanks all for the good info. If I run across a good one in my travels around H'burg, I'll post. Can't believe how few Mexican's are in Europe, it's the fastest growing population in the US.

If you like to cook Mexican, you can find really good, hot chili powder at the Asian Markets. There is "chili powder" and "extra hot chili powder." We've found the regular one to be hot enough to make foods fire alarm hot. Found fresh jalepenos 1 time at the local Famila - paid 3 eu for 1 but it was worth it! My husband is always looking for a great Mexican place and he does like Cafe Mexico. We've had Qrito recommended but haven't tried it yet. Anyone know if there is anywhere to reliably buy fresh Mexican chilis (poblano, jalepeno, serrano)? Or queso fresco? Hominy? We've had visiting friends bringing us corn tortillas, chopped green chilis and chipotle chilis in adobo but large cans of hominy are a bit heavy . . .

 

I'll forward the Eltequito info to my husband ...

tor, do you mean the SUPERMERCADO pictured there? You've referred to it as Surimex before, maybe the Street View picture is too old.

 

Lots of online shops for Mexican ingredients listed here:

Yeah it was originally written for Munich, but it's got translations of food terms, recipes, and information on online shops and national chains.
