May be my impression, but only on Puebla I saw the existance of the Taco Árabe (Arab Taco). So, definitely it's something we had to look up. It is kind of a fast food place, or that's what you see on the inside. They are...More

There’s a constant queue for a reason. These tacos are outstanding. Nothing fancy, just great tacos. Do not walk by. March right in.

This is a city crowded with good taco stands and restaurants. La Oriental, however, stands out in hearkening back to a Middle Eastern origin for the famous Mexican "taco al pastor." That is, with the immigration wave from Lebanon and nearby countries in the early...More

The best arab tacos I had ever tasted. They are very good but if you ask for some jocoque with your tacos they taste delicious and if some jocoque is left they have honey and you can eat it as a dessert. Really good experience.

We went to this restaurant with a local friend who took us there, the restaurant is fairly simple and not fancy at all. However the different choices of tacos was very broad and the ones we tried were delicious. We plan to come back and...More
