I have been a long time fan of this taco restaurant, the quality of the food is great, the salsas taste awsome and over all its a great eating experience, I recomend the " Farolada " which is a flour tortilla with cheese and meat, also the " carnitas " (pig meat ) are very good, the only problem I have with this place is that their prices are too high compared with other taco restaurants in the area, evry year he prices increase and having a family of 5 members the total cost of a meal can be pretty high about 80 USD which I think is to expensive for the kind of food they offer

This is a very clean and taste option for Tacos al Pastor as well as other types of tacos and also has a light menu

I used to love el charco de las ranas, but if you haven't try el farolito you're missing probably even better tacos al pastor. You should try also chicharron de queso and las costras (tacos with cheese tortilla instead of regular) and the mango juice is a nice healthy dessert. Enjoy

I went to Farolito last year with my Fiancee's family because the place we had originally planned on going to was closed. I really don't want to knock the restaurant that much, as the service is always good and fast, and the food is good and tasty, but my problem with it is that you can get comparable food (or better) from pretty much an decent mom n pops/family run taco restaurant in the city. I'm not saying that the prices are insanely high, as $10-15/person in most restaurants is very cheap, but for tacos in Mexico City you should never really expect to pay anymore than $5-10, and that is the problem with Farolito.
