This used to be a good modest taco stand. Then la Condesa became trendy & glamour girls decided to turn this more into the after party lunch. 5 salsa kinds, beer all night. Loud lounge music, service designer tshirts & accordingly hi priced. But still a must in df.

This basic but famous and most delicious taco stand in the San Rafael neighborhood close to the metro stop SAN COSME gives you the perfect mexican street food experience. There are no seats and you can only choose between 3 different kind of meat and two salsas. but they are excellent!!
