We arrived shortly after they opened as we had read that they get busy... and sure enough, by the time we finished our lunch and left, the place was full. There was so much good food on the menu, and there were so many salsas...More

Do not miss this place. The food is completely delicious. They take great pride in really authentic dishes using the freshest ingredients. Lots of small portions, perfect for sharing/tasting/testing. I was there with three kids and they all loved it. The menu doesn't have an...More

I think this is my favorite spot in Mexico City. Get there early and watch the space fill up with young professionals, artists, and Roma Norte neighbors. The soft shell crab taco was delicious...go here...relax...enjoy

Everything we had was great. The tacos, drinks, and all for a great place. It's not touristy at all but it's not a hole in the wall either. Just go!

Lunch starts late in Mexico City and the wait here can run an hour but if you have the patience, these are the best tacos you will find in the city for sure and the best I've had in Mexico anywhere. Prices are ridiculously low,...More

Wonderful oudoor seating, great food, very reasonable. Fish tacos and other delicacies. Lots of food for $10 each plus tip.

Known for its constant cultural and gastronomic
developments, Roma, is a beautiful neighborhood that
was once the place for poets such as Kerouac and
Ginsberg to call home. Galleries, museums and even
private residences are on beautiful display when
walking through Colima street to do some necessary
shopping or when going to the classic Cine Tonalá to
enjoy a delicious dinner and a great film. Top notch
