Mexican In Helsinki

A few days back the homies from Flow Mo Crew took me to a really nice Mexican restaurant here in Helsinki.  The first thing that came to my mind was really? Mexican in Finland, c'mon this can't be official.  But with reassurance I was eventually proven wrong and had some of the best Mexican food I've ever eaten.  First of all they have 2 locations that serve two totally different menu's, the day time location is Cholo "Mexican Street Kitchen" which is a small spot that seats maybe 10-12 people and sticks with the basics, all freshly made at the time of order (which we waited 20 mins because of being so busy).  The second location is more of a fine dining establishment with expensive (and strong) cocktails, great service and fitting music.  After digging a little further I found out why everything was so authentic, the owner of the restaurant is actually from Mexico and moved here a few years back after marrying his Finnish wife.  The kitchen staff is all of his family so of course the food should be on point.
