about this place
Nestled amongst the coco palms and glassy swells of Seminyak, Bali, lives the tropical oasis known as MOTEL MEXICOLA. Put your thinking shoes on and envision the lovechild of 1960s Acapulco and Ricky Ricardo (from "I Love Lucy") on a belly full of Huichole endorsed Peyote and seven lashings of Mezcal. Hopefully you are not thinking of a motel in Miami with an all you can eat buffet?! Rest assured we are not your average Motel and if you want to sleep over, then try your luck. At least until there is some sort of reform on marriage, we propose the sacred union between you "the customer" and us, "the-f$%&-yeah-amazing-antojeria-and-tequileria". Renowned Veracruzano "Jarocho" chef, Alejandro Urbina brings his "espirítu salvaje" to the plate and straight into your cake hole. With modern takes on "Comida Mexicana" traditional plates, to modern attacks on humble tasty-as-$%* street food and morsels. This is not to forget the booze and liquor - Nicolaza Que Pasa knows where to add the salt, where to put the tajín and exactly how much limon cabrone. So........ So the menu will be staring proper tacos, proper tostadas, aguachile, quesadillas and other legit antojitos (that's tapas). And it will make all the nachos and grey burritos you’ve ever ate look like the decaying corpse of Hernán Cortés. After one try of our saliva-triggering food you will probably be happy to eat it off the ground! We do.
"Eating At Motel Mexicola"
First, I will share their decor, very colorful and has a nostalgic kind of 50's style to it. The servers were quite friendly and helpful. Cooks seemed fairly quick to prepare meal, after we placed our order we glanced around and discussed the various things they had hang up and stuff. It seemed like only a few short minutes from the time we placed the order to the time it was served. We had some street like tacos with beef and they were so perfect the meat was so tender, I wanted to order more to take back to the room for later. Their drink list is quite long but being my wife and I do not drink, we stuck to iced tea.
"A unique gem"
If you're looking for a good time, this is the place to be. The atmosphere is great, the music is amazing. Great place to visit with friends for food and night out on the town. The food is really good here as well, a little pricey though. You get exactly what you pay for and a healthy portion of it as well. Drinks are good and they aren't stingy with the amount they give out. The staff is great and willing to party with you and your friends.
"An authentic good time"
This Mexican-themed restaurant is really authentic compared to some others. The decor is Mexican, so it sets the state for a good dinner. I was really impressed with the amount of food they give you - I definitely did not leave hungry. There are a lot of people in the restaurant and it's really popular, but I didn't really feel overwhelmed with noise. This is definitely where I would go when I want a good plate of Mexican food.
