HIROO: Salsita Mexican... Images of reasonably priced food ain't here.

I'm always been wary of going into Mexican restaurants without some kind of pre-set meal/drink course plan because the bill is always a shocker for mediocre Mexican food in Tokyo.

Let me share the bill with you first.... In the US how often are you met with a 38,900yen (USD$500) for seven people?  

November food specials/

Salsa and chips 600yen

Small portion of Guacamole Dip and Chips 900yen... don't Avocado's go for 100yen in the supermarket?  I can't ever recall paying this much for a little dip.

Jalapeno Bombs were a hit... hot!

Cactus salad was a first for me in Tokyo.

Chorizo Taco's...

Taco Topping...

Carnitas Tacos... weak... these chefs need to visit LA's amazing Taco Trucks.
800yen ($10) for 2 pieces.

Small glass of Mojito 900yen.

Mexican Rib Eye Steak 2,100yen.

Of course we had to have at least one shot... Prices ranged from 900-1200yen!  Dude... 

I really don't know what to say but if you are an Expat living in this area with a generous cost of living allowance this is probably a good place to take your family... atmosphere was clean and colorful and the clientele seemed to consist mostly of foreigners.  Perhaps this is why they can get away with charging unusually high prices for event the most basic items.  I was a frequent user of the Ebisu location until it shut down but I won't be back here again... Cost Performance was just terrible.  If you are craving Mexican in Tokyo then just head on to reasonable LIBRE .
