Why locals love it

Pastor tacos are sold everywhere but here you can find the real deal: the meat, the marinade is as natural and flavorsome as it can be. The red salsa is to die for.

If you go, make sure you are at the right place: the whole street is packed with taco places. Opens early (11am) but pastor tacos are ready after 6-7 p.m. on.

Why you should visit it

This taco place started as a stall over 40 years ago, tacos were soo good that the stall soon became a formal taquería (a massive one by the way). The place is not touristic at all. When waiter comes ask the number and type of taco you want: "Cinco de pastor por favor" (five of pastor please) and a beverage: aguas frescas and sodas are sold.

Special tip

On separate dishes you will be served pineapple, onion and coriander: add that to your taco, red hot sauce, lemon drops and enjoy!
