Just a short comment. Order Tacos al Pastor with all (Meat, cilantro, onions, pineapple), ask for the sauce plates and you just will be delighted. These jummy thin tortillas, filled with delicious meat and this change of tastes when you bite into it.

El Tizoncito serves Tacos and the like of best quality. It's finger-licking good. Service is swift and kind. The only downside is that the inside isn't ventilated sufficiently which means you will inevitably smell of delicious food afterwards.

So this isn't fine dining, but it is really fine. "street tacos" at their finest, the al pastor is so flavorful and tasty, chips and salsa great, and its a fun place. You should not miss it, even if only a mid day snack.

Best tacos we experienced in all of Mexico City. Consider a must-visit on any trip. Staff weren't talkative but food was prompt and they spoke English.

Being Mexican, this restaurant is definitely recommendable if you are looking for authentic Mexican food. You get served with 'totopos' that go with beans and sauces as a starter,and the food comes quickly after this. The Tacos al pastor are great, as well as the...More

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.
