If you like tacos and like people who like making tacos, then go here. It's a Mexico City legend, and the food lives up to the hype. We ate there for quite a while--in part because it was POURING outside and we didn't feel like...More

Cheap and awesome tacos al pastor. The sign claims they invented the style, but who knows. We ate a mountain of tacos and a dozen beers. I love this place.

Brought by a local who said this is THE place to get tacos al pastor. Enjoyed a few tacos while chilling on the outside bar. Typical small pastor tacos that you can knock down one after the other. Excellent salsas - loved the habanero one.

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.
