Given how far Amsterdam is from Mexico, it may take a little courage for you to try this mini-chain's popular enchiladas with mole (pronounced moh-lay and featuring a spicy chocolate-chili sauce) or cochinita pibil (slow-roasted pork). But even if these aren't the most authentic Mexican dishes you'll ever eat, the charming young staff and casual environment here are winners. Even better, the selection of tequilas is deliciously ample (including their very
own brand), the guacamole is fresh, and the margaritas have all the requisite bite and zest. Los Pilones has two other locations, in the Jordaan and Nieuwmarkt.
