A real Hidden gem far away from the hustle of Dubai, Muchachas Mexican Cantina is located in the ground level of Holiday Inn Express Safa Park. It serves some scrumptious Mexican delicacies. The ambiance is quirky with beautiful neon lights, use of green & pink makes it more welcoming. The place is really an Instagrammable place. Although the restaurant is small, the tables are set at different levels, which makes the place looks quite spacious. The staff is really helpful & friendly. We were welcomed by Happy & Crystal, both make us fee comfortable by guiding us to our table & suggesting us through the menu.
