Na Chili Moscow

Na Chili – Tex Mex Mix

Let me tell you how I rediscovered this place. When my ex-colleague decided to open Moscow’s first Mexican food spot in street food format, no one took it quite seriously – it was an old location on legendary Brusov Ship (now closed), quite a cozy friends’ place for those walking in Muzeon park.

A few months ago I was heading to a pub in Pokrovka. The music was a bit loud at first and there was no food on the menu so my friends relocated to neighboring Na Chili (the new spot instead of Brusov Ship), and that’s how I discovered its new location.

Really it’s a hipster place with fine Mexican food, tequilla and new Russian craft beers on tap. The nice thing is that this place famous for its food – the city media always cover it. 

What I also like is the interior – very simple but with Catholic cultural influences. The print on the walls was made by a trendy Moscow bureau but I can’t remember the name. I was lucky to be at a party there, well, a strange one: the people almost didn’t dance, they had their drinks talking, the DJ was Spanish music (modern of course), the tattoo master making his art in the corner – quite special and curious, but lovely. At least after this random visit I go there regularly and the quiet yard of the building seems to be a nice location for a drink outdoors once it gets warm.

Gonna check it tomorrow 😉
