Still searching for that bite of authentic Mexican food around Tel Aviv? Try out Viva Mexico — you’ve probably walked by it hundreds of times, but definitely stop into this small restaurant with big taste and portions hidden in Shuk HaCarmel.

Viva Mexicano finally promises real Mexican food, free from all the fast-food Mexican hype. The Mexican-owned restaurant is the perfect place to go for a taste of home-cooked Mexican food. It’s that hole-in-the-wall type of restaurant that brings some of the best authentic cuisine and it’s a must-have if you’re strolling through the shuk.

The menu offers typical Mexican street food dishes like tacos, burritos, nachos and flautas. For a great price you’ll get a large meal piled on with rice, beans, cheese, guacamole and a whole lot of tortilla. The service is extremely quick and personal and it feels like a true home-cooked experience while they prepare the food right in front of your eyes.

Viva Mexico definitely brings the heat to the shuk, and although it might be easy to miss, make sure you keep your eyes open for this one.
