We are closed at the moment as are moving to No 5 Aston Quay, Temple Bar, Dublin 2. We apologize for any inconvenience caused. We are Dublin's best Mexican eatery and have great plans for the new venue. The Chef Oman is working hard to bring very best authentic Mexican dishes to satisfy all palates.
We are glad to hear that our followers are still waiting for The Hungry Mexican Restaurant to open its door again.
