Since becoming vegetarian, eatig out is a challenge; however on this visit to Mexico City, a stop in a traditional taco place was a positive surprise due to the nopales asados they offered. Just delicious.

When a good friend of mine found out I was in Mexico City, he recommended coming here so he could live vicariously through me. The location was only a short walk away from the Red Tree House. The streets reminded us of Barcelona and even some of the areas in New York City where there's a number of apartments and... More

Tacos are a staple in Mexico! There are plenty of places to go to but this place has good, cheap and clean tacos. I am gringa lover (Pastor meat, cheese and wheat tortillas) Ask for it by saying "doradito el queso por favor" this means they will toast the cheese on the plancha so you get some crispiness. Delish!!! Anyway,... More

We left the city of Roma and drove to a very near by trendy neighborhood. There are a few of these restaurants in the city. My New York friend who visit Mexico sometimes for work loves this place for the pork tacos... Says it's the best she has had... I tried a cactus taco, a vegetarian option which was pretty... More

We had el pastor at the sidewalk stools here on the corner of Campeche and Tamaulipas in the Condesa neighborhood. Tizoncito has a lot of locations in Mexico City, including another on the same street as this one! But a friend who lived in DF steered us to this one and it was excellent.

Once tried a salad with some chicken on it, second time I tried the tacos. Both times I was satisfied. The food is generally good and the waiters are friendly. Make sure you speak some Spanish though. I had a hard time ordering the first time. Oh also the complementary chips with all the sauces you get are delicious. The... More
