Where to Get the Best Taco Near La Condesa, Mexico City

Updated: 27 March 2018
While La Condesa is definitely not working class, you can still find great tacos in the center and just across Insurgentes Avenue in Colonia Roma. Here is a selection of our favorites—everything from grilled meats, to vegan tacos and tacos de guisados.

tacos al pastor

They claim to have invented the taco al pastor (along with a few other restaurants in town) and they still roast their meat on a spit with charcoal, a novelty in spit-fired tacos in Condesa. Slightly sweet and tangy, you will love the tacos al pastor, but make sure to get some grilled green onions to go on top as well. They also have soups, alambres and several different kinds of quesadillas.

Tacos El Greco

Food Stall, Mexican, $$$
Save to wishlist
Quite possibly the best tacos arabes in the city, this particular type of taco was made famous in the nearby city of Puebla and that’s where the owners of El Greco came from over 30 years ago. Tacos arabes are made of pork and grilled on a spit with a flavor that is reminiscent to shawarma but in a whole other league. Don’t pass up the black beans or their delicious (and fiery) salsas.

Another great spot for tacos de guisado, Tacos Gus is a daytime joint that will fill your belly with just a few tacos. Walking into the restaurant, you’ll be overwhelmed by the choices, all decoratively set out in ceramic bowls, with a couple grill masters behind the counter heating things up. Try the quelites, chicken tinga or grilled mushrooms.
