One thing we love the most about this city is how diverse the food scene is. When it comes to places that offer Mexican delights, Cairo never disappoints. In this list, we’ve gathered six places in Cairo that provide the all-time favourite Mexican Taco:


  1. Gringo’s Burrito Grill:

Boasting a variety of Mexican dishes, Gringo’s also offers three different types of Tacos; Tinga Shredded Chicken Taco, Machaca Shredded Beef Taco, and a Chili Con Carne Taco. Best thing is Gringo’s has a few branches around Cairo: Find them in Maadi, Galleria 40 in Sheikh Zayed, Zamalek , and Point 90 Mall in New Cairo.

  1. Gracias:

The newly opened Latin kitchen stand/restaurant at Capital Promenade in Sheikh Zayed has made quite the fuss. The venue provides six different kinds of handcrafted tacos & even catering services!

  1. Tabla Luna:

A cosy bistro that offers a wide selection of modern Latin American cuisine in Maadi. Tabla Luna delivers all over the Maadi area, so give their twenty-ingredient taco a go!

  1. Maria’s:

Hidden away in Hilton Heliopolis Hotel, one would expect that Maria’s Mexican cuisine would be a high-end one. Maria’s provides an array of set-dinner menus, Mexican specials, and taco baskets –definitely worth the visit!

  1. Mezcal:

An exclusive Peruvian and Mexican restaurant/bar in the heart of Zamalek offering both alcohol and delicious cuisine. Opening its doors around 7PM, Mezcal delivers a classy night out with a contemporary taco selection.

  1. The Tap:

Although The Tap might have situated itself more in the nightlife scene, its food menu is a must-try for sure, especially if you are craving a Shrimp or Buffalo Chicken Taco. Boasting branches in key areas, The Taps can be found in New Cairo, Sheikh Zayed, as well as Maadi.
