New Mexico Leuven Reviews
Best Mexican restaurant in town Jul 05, 2007
For those who like to try some Tex-Mex Food while visiting Leuven, New Mexico restaurant is the place to be!
The waiters are really friendly and fast, the room is well decorated and not too big, but most of all: the food is wonderful. I went there two months ago to celebrate my birthday and I was really amazed. I had never eaten Mexican food before but I certainly will again. You have lots of dishes to choose from, so everyone can find something he or she likes. The plates are really full and the presentation is also original. Nothing extremely fancy but yet its surprising and of good quality. Both wine and food are delicious.
There are other Mexican restaurants in Leuven but this one is defenately the best!
My menu suggestion:
- Large Margarita
- Ensalada El Gringo
- Burito de pollo
One disadvantage maybe, the deserts aren't that great. But hey, I have written another review on 'Den Artiest' where you can eat the best pancakes with ice cream you ever had... So for those still a little bit hungry after eating the Mexican dishes (seems really unlikely), Den Artiest will do.
New Mexico is located in 'De Munstraat', which is a small road where only pedestrians can go. Almost in every house here there is a restaurant. It is close to the market square and the station, and really cosy. In the summer time you can enjoy the people passing by while having a drink or some tapas on the terras. This is a street where all kinds of people come, from students to businessmen and tourists. Small but fun!
