We tend not to trust Mexican cooking outside of Mexico and the border regions, but we make an exception for this rambling restaurant in a sub-basement. Mariachis stroll through the florid, Spanish-style ‘courtyard’ as you tuck into enchiladas tricolores (chicken enchiladas with three colours of mole sauce), surprisingly gourmet fish and meat dishes, and potent margaritas (pay ¥150 extra for the good tequila). The downside: it may be the most expensive Mexican meal we’ve ever eaten. Still, it’s less than a plane ticket to Guadalajara.
