Los Sifones is a real family style Mexican restaurant that serves outstanding food. I went there particularly to try their molcajete caliente, a stone mortar sizzling with meat, cheese, lava salsa, and avocado. It was a stunner.

Taqueria Los Güeros again serves all sorts of tacos, but we tried their tacos de tripa, slow cooked pork intestines fried and sizzling on a tortilla. Amazing.

Their Al Pastor and their tacos de cabeza are the champs. A fantastic neighborhood street food tacos stall.

While Taqueria El Abanico has the full works of different tacos, their carnitas are the best.

Churrería El Moro is by all means the most famous place (maybe the best) to eat churros in the world. Yes, they were spectacular. And you can enjoy them 24 hours a day. I’m not big on sweets, but a few of their churros were irresistible.

El Vilsito is one of the most famous taqueria’s in Mexico City for a reason – their Al Pastor is on another level. Marcos, the Al Pastor master, has been shaving meat off the trompo for over 18 years, and he’ll serve you one of the best tacos al pastor you’ll ever taste. I tried a Gringa, a flour tortilla with cheese, al pastor meat, and pineapple on top. It was a life-changer.
