Catrinas – Mexican restaurant

One of my favourite restaurants in Beirut is this extremely delicious Mexican restaurant! It has been less than a year since it opened in the heart of Beirut in the area of Mar Mikhael. This spot since then has attracted crows of people; try going there at night and see how packed it is with people and great music!

I have tried their food a couple of times and trust me, their service and food taste is beyond amazing. It’s so good you will definitely want to go back for more! What I also love about this spot is its “Dia de los Muertos” vibe which means “Day of the Dead”. This festival is celebrated in Mexico every year around November.

This multi-day festival is basically when family and friends gather all together to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died and help support their spiritual journey. The spot itself is decorated with various art paintings of Dia de los Muertos characters. It is also believed that the restaurant represents a satirical reinterpretation of a Mexican cartel’s villa.

Therefore, you will be feeling like you are in Mexico, having great food and feeling the day of the dead vibe while dancing to Latino music at night and imagining what a cartel’s villa could look like! What more can you ask for when Mexico comes to you in another continent?
