Tortilla Modern Mexico on Long Street

A salivating Mexican experience awaits in Cape Town’s CBD

Calling all fans that love everything Mexican, especially when it comes to the delectable cuisine that this nation has to offer. Drop everything and go and visit Tortilla Modern Mexico. The CBD restaurant is making all sorts of spicy waves among those who work or live within its vicinity. The setup is modern and chic, with an atmosphere as inviting as the aromas floating out of the front door and into the busy streets. Whether it’s burritos or tantalizing tortillas, this new restaurant promises not to disappoint with its traditional Mexican food options creatively brought to life by adding a few modern twists. They offer options for which accompaniment you’d prefer-choose either a burrito as the base or a conventional bowl filled with yummy goodness.

They proclaim that their food is restaurant quality with the efficiency of a fast food restaurant. What great news for those who want home cooked cuisine, but are generally too impatient to sit through the tedious process of waiting for their food. If you’re on a journey of transformation and prefer healthier food options, look no further than this Mexican gem. They serve fresh and healthy food to suit your specific dietary needs. Whether it’s their low carb option presented in a sizeable bowl, or their revitalizing vegetarian burritos; they’ve got you covered. 

Their menu will leave you feeling a bit perplexed trying to choose the most suitable filling’s for your burritos or dish bowl. There’s no need to worry, because the helpful staff are all too familiar with what’s good on the menu and they’ll be able to give you informed suggestions on what you might enjoy. If you feel like a breakfast that is a bit different to the normal run-of-the-mill fare, start your day off with a decadent cuppa Joe and a wholesome breakfast burrito. Not one for caffeine? Try their fresh juices to start a busy day. 

We know all too well that it can be difficult to balance between saving and spending, but luckily Tortilla Modern Mexico helps alleviate this challenge. This tortilla outfit offers you healthy, tasty food at affordable prices. Whether you’ve never tried Mexican cuisine or if you’re already a fan, pop around at Tortilla Modern Mexico for a ‘bonito’ experience.

We love the burrito as our base, filled with braised beef with the addition of black beans, salsa, mushrooms, guacamole, cheese and tomato fresca. We also love the vibrant atmosphere and friendly staff.

Tip: Head over to Tortilla Modern Mexican if you are in the mood for a cultural experience, that is easy on the pocket and bound to satisfy any hunger pangs.
