Motel Mexicola… It is the current hipster place in Seminyak, Bali. I’ve seen pictures posted in social media platforms, showing bits of how the place looks like. The place was definitely the top of my list for my Bali trip this time.
Do not get mistaken by its name. Motel Mexicola is not an average motel, it’s actually a bar! The moment I stepped into Motel Mexicola, I felt that I was in a set of a Mexican movie. Everything is just so Mexican here. Bright colours are everywhere, mural paintings on the walls, and it’s all about patterns and tiles, religious icons and flowers filling every spare corner…
The place is going Mexican all the way. The menu is about proper tacos, burritos, quesadillas, nachos and the list goes on. The portion is good for sharing too. We decided to try the nachos and the churros. As for the drinks, we went for their Mangohito, which is fresh slices mango blended with mint leaves, sour mix hardly shaken and burst with soda rock glass presentation, and their Mexican Banana Smoothies.
I love the nachos! The fried tortillas is served with minced pork meat with blended guacamole. But the churros disappointed us. The texture was not rightly cooked and the caramel dipping sauce was too watery.
With the amazing decoration, the ambience was superb and totally had the whole “Mexican” vibe going on. It is a great place to hangout and chill out. But if you are looking for Mexican munchies, maybe it is not.
