    • Editor's Description
      Upscale Mexican tapas joint on a busy corner, serving margaritas and lots of small plates. Food is more Mexican than Tex-Mex. They do good lunch sets too, for 68-100rmb per person. For dinner, you're looking at more like 450-600rmb for two. Here's some history on the spot. Popular, long-running casual Mexican restaurant Cantina Agave lived in this space from 2008 to late 2015. Then in 2016, it respawned as a more upscale affair called Tepito, when chef and serial restauranter Kelley Lee rebranded the place and brought in chef Edgar Hernandez from Mexico City. Gone are the burrito and quesadilla deals, now replaced by items like Carnitas Taquitos, Salpicon of beef brisket, Kingfish Tiradito, and bigger plates for 2-3 persons. Cocktails are around 70rmb. It's a mixed bag but overall decent. Tip: Go for the tortas.
