Tacos Luis Jerusalem – authentic Mexican cuisineDining travel guide
Address: Queen Shlomziyon St 11, Jerusalem
Jerusalem’s Tacos Luis specializes in authentic Mexican cuisine and uses homemade tortillas. Founded four years ago by sisters Leah Stopper and Yeti Lawson, the restaurant is owned by Mexican chef Luis Cruz. Cruz is married to Stopper, who manages the restaurant.
Among the restaurant’s offerings are tacos, a beloved Mexican dish made with small tortillas usually filled with meat, chicken, fish, vegetables, salsa, and other toppings. Lawson makes the homemade tortillas from soaked corn that is ground using a traditional millstone grinder before being cooked and flattened into soft, pliable discs.
Authentic and delicious tacos are praised by reviewers, including options for vegetarians and vegans. In addition to Jamaica, horchata, and homemade lemonade/chia, the restaurant offers a variety of beverages. It is centrally located and reasonably priced. In particular, reviewers enjoyed the tortilla chips and the special juices.
