This tequila-dominated retreat caters for fiery palates using only traditional Mexican ingredients that transcend the palate on a journey through Mexico.
The menu spills authentic cuisine roughly translated and favour authentic corn tortillas and dishes best enjoyed with Tequila.
The owner occasionally delights patrons with singing and guitar as flickering candles silhouette Mexican crosses, Sombreros and rust coloured walls.
The open plan kitchen buzzes with aromas and tantalizing dishes such as nachos, coiled tortillas, tacos, tampiquena (barbecued meat with red rice, beans, guacamole) and tortillas (either handmade with corn or flour) accompanied by barbecued meat, guacamole, mozzarella, onion and coriander.
Reputed for the best margaritas in town, freshly prepared meals and endless tequila, San Julian offers an authentic Mexican welcome.
The Garcia family left Mexico to settle in Cape Town in June 2010 and according to Arturo "we prepare only traditional, authentic Mexican dishes".
San Julian is a hands-on operation with almost every member of the Garcia family involved, either on the floor serving with a smile or in the kitchen preparing delicious Mexican fair.
