The best Mexican Seminyak
This place was heaving when we wandered by on our hunt for a family friendly restaurant in Seminyak. We took this as a good sign, and joined the crowd. We weren’t disappointed. While not mind-blowing food, Taco Casa’s menu of wholesome, simple, familiar and tasty food such as tacos, enchiladas, burritos, and quesadillas keeps the kids happy. There’s colouring in pencils and paper, and the wait wasn’t long too. All the essentials for a family restaurant right there.
Taco Casa Mexican Seminyak is just steps from the Ibis Styles hotel on Jl. Petitenget, Kerobokan. Head out the door and to your left. Taco Casa is sandwiched between Mozzarella to the left, and Smokehouse BBQ and Pison Coffee to the right.
Best places to eat in Seminyak with kids
Taco Casa has all the goods. I couldn’t resist a cheesy enchilada flooded in their homemade enchilada sauce (not quite the same as my favourite enchilada from Montezumas in Burleigh on the Gold Coast), with enough stringy cheese to rival the muddle of power lines outside. The bowl of black beans and sour cream was a bonus. I skipped the avo – the tummy complains.
Ned and Jack shared a platter of crispy tacos – two for the big boy, one for the little one. (Roam stayed home this trip. We left him to tackle the laundry and the sorting of the shed.) They devoured them, which is always a good sign.
One of the top restaurants in seminyak for fussy eaters
Taco Casa has a homemade crusade – yep, their flour tortillas, guacamole, pico de gallo salsa, enchilada and hot sauces, beans, taco shells, corn chips, taco salad bowls and dressings are all made from scratch and contain no lard, MSG or preservatives. You can see it, you can taste it.
The sauces and sour cream are served separately, as are the pickles and black beans, so fussy kids can add them at the right time. The staff are also highly accommodating and friendly, and you can see the staff working behind the counters to prepare your meals so special requests are probably fairly doable and possible.
Seminyak restaurants that remind you of home
While Cheesy Enchiladas are top of menu, there’s a whole page of deliciousness up for grabs. For a change, try a Naked Burrito Bowl (Chicken bowl costs 68,000 rupiah – $7 AUD) or Make Your Own Tacos. Starting at 14,000 for three homemade crispy or soft tacos, you then add your own choices from a list of veggies, chicken, prawns, avo, diced tomatoes, pinto or black beans, rice, cheese, sour cream and jalapenos. Lettuce and chopped chilli is free.
For those who don’t eat gluten or flour, the Fiesta Salad will suit. Ditch the corn chips, and add your choice of meat if you like.
Next time, we’re going to order the quesadillas like the fellow next door to us did. Ned and I agreed – those bite-size pockets looked like cheesy melt heaven.
Taco Casa Menu Prices
Prices at Taco Casa Mexican Seminyak start from 47000 rupiah for a small regular nachos and top out at 90,000 rupiah for a wet shrimp burrito. The majority of mains cost between 60,000 and 75,000 rupiah, with desserts around 20,000 each ($2.20 AUD). Try one of their pure fruit juices for 31,000 ($3.30 AUD) or one of their blended fresh tropical juices. Ned has a strawberry milkshake smoothie (& whipped cream topping!), while I had a sublime Mango Lassie. They do serve margaritas, mojitos, tequila, sangria and beer too.
A note of reassurance – the salad ingredients here are washed in purified water and stored in the fridge so you’re pretty safe eating here.
