Taco Casa is the best Mexican restaurant in Ubud, possibly even in Bali (only in comparison to a few others), but there are limited options here for Mexican and this is a great restaurant!
It is located on Jalan Pengosekan, right on the bend going into town. There is a small amount of parking out the front, otherwise there is a laneway with ample parking across the road and 20m further from town.
The restaurant is efficiently run, with loads of attentive and friendly staff, and a great system in the kitchen that works well, as you always get your food in a timely manner. On top of all that the food is delicious.
Above is the salad bowl, which has an amazing mix of delicious Mexican ingredients, like avocado, beans, lettuce, tomatoes, corn, capsicum, your choice of meat, and a fabulous dressing, served in a crunchy crispy baked tortilla – which you can eat. There is another salad worth mentioning, the Fiesta, which has similar ingredients, (slightly different) and comes in a regular bowl with a few corn chips in it. That one is my favourite. Below is delight for the kids, MYO taco’s. Choose your ingredients off the list, then they all come separate for you to make yourself, the kids love it and they can choose what goes in them, so much fun! The shells and corn chips are all home made, and are really rustic and good.
The other favourite dish (Rob’s) is the burrito. A giant soft flour tortilla encasing some meat (of your choice), rice, beans, cheese, guacamole, lettuce, tomato, and maybe some other bits, with sauce. Spicy or not! Yummbo!
The kids other popular meal is the quesadilla, or the flat bread toasted sandwich I like to call it. several different fillings, served with guacamole, salsa, and sour cream. Always gobbled up quickly.
This place is a really fresh tasty Mexican restaurant, not the typical cheesy oily mass produced fare you sometimes get with Mexican. And all at a reasonable price. Gotta love it. I’m salivating thinking about it now!
