El Latina. The best Mexican food in Kyoto (according to http://www.eatdrink-kyoto.com/bestOfKyoto.php) The owner lived in Mexico for 5-10 years. The food was quite good; it was great to taste jalepenos again! It is only about a 25 minute walk south of our apartment. the restaurant is in the basement of a non-descript office building. It is more of a bar, but has 3-4 tables too. Very dark. The kids were like "why is it so dark in here?"
Here are the kids with what is left of the nachos. M had a quesadilla!!! We ordered nachos, quesadilla, chorizo, tacos and enchiladas. YUM.
We have also been to taqueria Pachanga, which is about 10-15 minutes walk north. That place had more of a "japanese" taste to the dishes, and was more spanish than mexican, but was also good. We should head back there. Soon.
