El Tizoncito Restaurant
Tamaulipas No. 122
Ciudad de México, Ciudad de México México
Corner with Campeche Avenue, 5 blocks from Mexico Park
This popular restaurant claims to have originated tacos al pastor – quién sabe? They were probably the first establishment to serve them in a restaurant setting. Whatever the case, it’s a neighborhood institution and does them very well; the alambres and side dishes such as salsas, cebollitas (small onions) and nopales are fine, as are the aguas frescas.
