Quick Tip: Cafe Especial

Ok, it’s already considered the best Mexican restaurant in Cologne, so it doesn’t need the press, but if you have a craving for decent Mexican, Cafe Especial near the Deutz Bahnhof fits the bill.

A nice Tequila list (great selection in German terms, nothing like Tommy’s Tequila in San Francisco), great guacamole, very good chili colorado and a better than average salsa were all in the mix last saturday, but the meal comes with a price – a hefty price.

A Chili Colorado burrito, which would cost 6 dollars in the States runs you over 10 euros. Herradura Tequila was over 7 a shot. The service was minimal and disorganized.

Still, it was a very passable Mexican joint by European standards and we will be back once our wallets recover from the shock.

Cafe Especial, Köln Deutz U-Bahn. Worth a trip.
