Shrimp tacos with mango salsa and fish tacos with chipotle tartar sauce are two of more popular taco variations here. The menu features a half dozen in all, plus Mexican-standard main dishes like fajitas, enchiladas, burritos and burrito bowls. Festive cocktails, many of them frozen, are another draw. And you can enjoy your meal out on the spacious open-air terrace when the weather permits.

El Caliente is produced by the Huge restaurant group, and is the fifth in their "Modern Mexicano" collection, which also includes Hacienda del Cielo (Daikanyama) and Mucho (Marunouchi). Budget around Y3,500 at dinnertime, or Y1,000 for lunch specials, served until 3pm.
