Motel Mexicola

I stumbled on Motel Mexicola with Zippy (who took this series of photos) when I visited Bali earlier this year. Unlike what the name suggests, this is not a motel, hotel or even bed and breakfast. Motel Mexicola is a trendy and photogenic Mexican themed bar and restaurant in Seminyak (the hip hood of Bali). I loved the colours and retro feels that somehow works with the electric mix of ‘holy’ shrines and neon lights. Basically, happy vibes only!

The food I had was nothing mindblowing (basic tacos and nachos) but the service here is impeccable! Their smiles and hospitality make you feel right at home. I was told by the staff (who gave us some free tequila shots) that I should visit again after 8 pm to see how this place transforms into a Latin-styled party joint with a live band and lots of dancing opportunities. After spending an hour or so in this place, I won’t be surprised if you get disorientated and think you are holidaying in Cancun instead of Bali.

This trip to Bali happened shortly after the Mount Agung volcano eruption¬†in January. Although there was a lot of sensationalised news on the terror of the volcano eruption, there was nothing out of the ordinary while I was in Bali. It is still business as usual everywhere. Besides, there are a lot of other ways to get out of Bali (like taking a ferry to Java which I did to see some mystical blue flames here), so I wasn’t too worried. Bali has developed so much and so quickly, there is always something new for me to explore each time I visit. Honestly, it was an incredibly short weekend getaway though wished I had more time to shop and cafe hop.
