The Best Taco Stand EVER~!

The best taco stand EVER! can be found on the corner of Articulo 123 and Balderas streets near the Reforma area of Mexico City! I always indulge in the 6 pesos Chile Rellenos Tacos which are usually sold out by 11am every day. This stand is open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day and please don't let its street food scene scare you! The tacos here are divine! I about had a conniption fit on my last visit at 10 am when they told me they were not making the Chile relleno tacos that day! So I survived on a boiled egg taco instead. Not as tasty and original but filled me up nonetheless. Here you will also find an array of choices that range from Tongue ( lengua ) to (Chicarrone = Pig Fat ) as well us other 'meats' so you can't be shy. Note: The salsa is so incredible that once the guy working there filled a plastic bag with the stuff and sent me on my way! All the locals stare at me when I eat here especially when I smother my taco with the salsa ranchera in question. It is best to eat these tacos like the locals with chopped onion, cilantro and of course the red magic salsa! Please visit!


  1. I LOVE your blog! So interesting and fun! Your photography is just so real-love it!

  2. Gretchen, I am loving these Mexico City posts of yours. Good for your for totally immersing yourself in the place -- and sharing the experience.
    Too bad we missed each other in Seattle! It was a lot of fun, and one night I caught up with some high school friends. And then we started going through our annuals -- lord almighty...!
    (And there's a Skoochies reunion on the 15th, and we're not there! I guess at the last one there was tons of Djarum clove smoke in the air -- would LOVE to have been there for that sensation alone!)

  3. Mmmm. I've been working on perfecting my homemade salsa. Next time you're there ask for their recipe!
