Margarita Colendra is a small, yet cosy Mexican restaurant situated in Warsaw’s up and coming Praga district. Just a few minutes walk from Dworzec Wileński train station, this is a good option for those wanting great Mexican food without crowds and away from the main streets of central Warsaw. The menu is like the venue – small and to the point. It’s a one-room, Mexican-themed restaurant with a small bar. The Mexican chefs cook up daily specials, with an accompanying sauce. Ice-cold Mexican Corona is served from the fridge with a fresh slice of lime, and a salt-rimmed michelada, a treat here. On the tasty food menu, try the chorizo quesadillas or the chicken chilaquiles. There are some nice vegetarian options too, including the vege tacos which come with an abundance of fresh vegetables. There are also quotes in Spanish adorning the walls of this quiet little restaurant.
