Tacos, of course (duh)! From classic Mexican tacos to gluten-free and vegan options, Trejo’s Tacos are determined to serve healthier Mexican food that “won’t clog your arteries.” – as Danny Trejo said.

 

Following the Mexican tradition of passing through recipes from generation to generation, Trejo’s Tacos use family recipes that have been improved over decades to serve you finger licking authentic Mexican dishes.

On the menu, you will find brunch, such as breakfast taco and breakfast burrito, chorizo pancakes and waffles, salads, bowls and more.

 

To wet your throat, you can choose from a range of delicious cocktails and mocktails, Margaritas as well as draft beer, bottled beer, wine, and shots.

 

We tried the Grilled Chicken Tacos, Chips & Guacamole, Frozen Mangonada, and some churros for dessert.

 

The Grilled Chicken Tacos had a filling mix of chipotle slaw, Pico De Gallo, chipotle crema, lettuce, and delicious grilled chicken chunks.

The Frozen Mangonada was served in a quirky cactus glass (which I instantly fell in love with) and the orange drink on the top looked like a big flower. The portion was huge, I was barely able to finish my drink which came with real mano puree and mango chunks.

 

The Chips & Guacamole was also a big portion and the Guacamole it was served with was more than enough for all of the chips around it. The Guacamole was rich and flavourful.

The Churros was nice and soft on the inside and crispy on the outside, thickly sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and came with two different sauces. The portion was not big, but after the food, it was just enough for me to sit back on my chair with full stomach, satisfied.

 

The Interior

The interior is fun and welcoming. Natural colours and materials are dominating throughout the restaurant. The colours are warm, mainly different shades of brown and orange.

 

Upon your arrival, there is an adorable small waiting area where you can sit down if you happen to arrive a bit too early or just need to wait a few minutes for your table to be set up for you. Here you can sit on a comfortable couch decorated with Mexican-style cushions.

Adding to the Mexican vibe, big, beautiful cactuses are planted everywhere inside the restaurant.

 

The main dining area is light and airy. There are hand-painted murals of on the walls to provide the perfect background for your Insta pics and TikTok videos.

Notice the small details, such as the cute neon sign at the food serving area, the skulls at the bar, the metal sign saying “Tequila por favor” sitting with the cactuses or the random posters on the ceiling.

Downstairs there is an intimate speakeasy bar with cosy armchairs and dim lights to make it more atmospheric.
