Too Good Not to Share: Taco Beach Mexican Grill in Seminyak Bali – Outstanding Mexican Cuisine at Unbeatable Prices


Lured in by positive reports on Trip Advisor, boasts of the “Best Mexican Food in Bali,” and remarkably low prices - we recently visited the Taco Beach Mexican Grill located on Jalan Kunti No. 6, Seminyak, Bali.

Situated in a single-story shop, the most glaring deficiency at Taco Beach Mexican Grill is space. Cognizant of this fact, the owner confided that he is exploring options to expand his restaurant’s size. Until more space is added, however, reservations for evenings or weekends are highly recommended.

Run by a husband and wife team, the restaurant offers a sraightforward range of Mexican specialties – each conforming to its management’s philosophy of using only the finest and freshest ingredients authentically presented to satisfy even the fussiest aficionado of Mexican food.

A commitment to slow food and authenticity means you’ll find no bottled salsa here. All sauces and salsas are, in fact, made from scratch. In this same tradition, they also grind their own corn used in the preparation of cornbread, pancakes, tamales and tortillas.

Fanatical about doing it right and doing it themselves, the folks at Taco Beach Mexican Griill also culture their own yoghurt and sour cream, produce some of the cheeses used in their recipes, churn their own butter and smoke the chipotle chilies used in their signature sauces.

The smokehouse for smoking chilies is also used in smoking fish, pork and chicken for tacos, burritos and salads.

Although adamant about authenticity, when a rare digressions from mainstream Mexican cusine occurs the results can be amazing. A case in point: Taco Beach’s signature “Babi Guling Carnitas Taco.” Drawing its inspiration from Bali’s famous suckling pig recipe – roasted pork, Balinese base sauce, avocado, sour cream and a corn tortilla combine is a dish that would have caused famed Bali anthropoligists Rose and Miguel Covarrubias to relocate to Seminyak from their Ubud home of an earlier era.

Appetizers start from Rp. 12,000 (US$1.25) for an Atomic Chile Popper – a battered and breaded roasted chili stuffed with mozzarella and delicately deep-fried.

A huge bowl of nachos served with an entire range of homemade sauces goes for just Rp. 35,000 (US$3.60). There’s a whole rage of tacos – using beef, prawns, fish, chicken - and even a tenderloin steak variation on that dish.

Not to be missed on a first or susequent visit are the chicken mole negro taco – celebrating the Mexican ability to combine sweet, spicy and chocolate in a main course dish

Taco Beach’s range of burritos also spoils diners for choice. Worthy of note is their 7-layer breakfast burrito featuring scrambled eggs, refried beans, Spanish rice, sour cream, bacon, pico de gallo and hot sauce. There’s even a vegetarian burrito option.

Main courses range from Rp. 25,000 (US$2.50) to Rp. 55,000 (US$5.70).

Neglect those areas "south of the border" and make room for dessert, which could be a slice of Margarita-lime cheese cake (Rp. 15,000) or deep fried apple pie taquito (Rp. 15,000).

Open daily from 12:00 noon until 10:00 pm.
