For as long as I can remember, this taqueria has been catering to generations of chilangos... it has one of the most extended menus, with all kinds of tacos, tortas and many other options. This joint grew into a very successful franchise, and while you...More

We ran the gambit of tacos: chuletas, chorizo y queso, bistec encebollado, arrechera and el pastor......can't go wrong with el pastor wish we would have ended with this instead of beginning....spicy avocado sauce and salsa are also delish.

Average tacos .... Condesa prices ... better options out there! Decent volcanes (toasted corn tortillas with your choice of meat topping melted into cheese).

Easy to explore either on bike or foot, Condesa offers
a great variety of activities and places to visit
while admiring its neo-colonial architecture. Diverse
restaurants vary from regional to global along its
streets, while local bars even let you craft your own
beer. The urban yet relaxing vibe let visitors cycle
or stroll on the Amsterdam Circuit.
