Santa Cantina

Simon-Dach-Straße 22, 10245 Berlin

Santa Cantina is a modern Mexican restaurant in Friedrichshain. 

Last time I was there was in a Taco Tuesday (totally recommended!) where you can get tacos (Pulled Pork, Chicken, Jackfruit or Veggie Chorizo Tacos only) for 2 EUR. It was summer, and sitting in their nice outside benches heading Simon-Dach-Str. was a total pleasure. 

On a regular day, the menu is bigger. You can start with Nachos, Tortilla chips or even have Chilaquiles as main dish. We had Green Chilaquiles and I must say they were delicious! Chilaquiles are made of tortilla chips, salsa verde, white cheese or creme fraiche, onion, coriander and cheese! We didn’t add something extra, but you can put on some egg, jerk chicken or veggie chorizo.

Regarding tacos, I had the Cochinita Pibil ones. Pulled pork, pickled red onion and habanero maracuja salsa. Super tasty! Instead of tacos, you can have them as quesadillas. I will try it for sure next time.

Don’t forget to get your spicy Michelada with your order!
