Santa MariaBerlin isn’t exactly known as a thriving hotbed of Mexican cuisine, but its reputation on that front has been growing thanks to the appearance of a range of small taco spots, burrito joints, and larger Tex-Mex restaurants. One of the most popular spots, Kreuzberg’s Santa Maria is along the lively Oranienstraße and manages to combine a buzzy, upbeat local vibe with above-average Mexican-inspired dishes. The menu offers quesadillas, tacos, and burritos, all prepared with handmade flour tortillas and served with corn chips and beans. There’s a great tequila and mezcal selection, too. If you’re in Friedrichshain, look for Santa's other restaurants: Santa Cantina, Santa Eastside, and Piri’s Chicken.
