Good, authentic Mexican food is not an easy thing to find in Sweden, if fact it is pretty hard to come by in most of Europe. However, in Göteborg we are in luck. We have Mexikanska Monakin and they are the king of authentic Mexican food here is Sweden.
The atmosphere through the restaurant is exactly what you want when getting Mexican food. You will find happy groups of friends sipping on margaritas and snacking on chips and salsa while gossiping and catching up on life. The staff is friendly and attentive, often fulfilling your needs like a refill on chips before you have even realized it was a need.
The food is absolutely fantastic. It comes in generous portions and can be shared amongst friends or greedily gobbled down alone. They have all the classics like tacos, quesadillas, tostados, and burritos. The food is spicy and savory and your waiter will always be happy to add a little extra kick if the spice is not up to your palate.
Perhaps the most impressive aspect of this restaurant is the diverse variety of mescal they offer. For those that are unaware, mescal is a traditional Mexican spirit made from agave. And, while many Mexican restaurants will have one or two tequilas on the menu, at Mexikanska Monarkin they boast an impressive 23 different mescals. These come from all types of agave and are available gold and silver from distilleries throughout Mexico. If you are feeling extra adventurous, maybe you can order a few and have a little taste test.
