Without a doubt one
of Tokyo's best
Mexican restaurants,
the festively deco-
rated Tepito offers
a wide menu of re-
gional dishes and
Mexican standards
prepared south-of-
the-border style.
Mexican wines start
at Y1800 per carafe,
or you can choose
from over one hun-
dred kinds of tequi-
la, many of them
available in tasting
flights.

On a recent visit we
enjoyed starters of
surprisingly piquant
stuffed rellenos
peppers, along with
crunchy quesidillas
topped with dollops
of fresh, very tasty
guacamole. Our jaded
palates were ap-
peased by the novel
flavors of our
Yucatan-style pork
and cactus salad,
although the salad
would have been even
better without the
unnecessary smoked
salmon.

We were also quite
happy with our wait-
er's tequila recom-
mendations, and we
look forward to
engaging in further
research in this
area. Budget around
Y4000 for dinner
with drinks. Note
that at the moment
they're open on
Wednesdays, Fridays
and Saturdays only.
