Tlacoyos Lucero y Pati

********** Oct 15, 2019 When we hit the corner of Calle López and Vizcaínas in downtown CDMX for our b-school taco reunion, it was like the heavens parted, angel choirs started singing...and we got in line. Lines aren’t always the best indicator of amazingness but in this case...100% accurate. Everyone knew this was the best kept street secret. Paty was off that day...

Pastes Kiko’s

When in Rome... had to try Pachuca’s famous “pastes” — flaky meat pies a la mexicana. English miners brought the idea and Mexico made it better (case in point, Lebanese immigrants bringing over the spit cooking idea which Mexicans made into al pastor...perhaps the greatest gift to humanity). So I was curious and the carne with papas, mole verde and rojo were good but...

Mercado de San Juan Gourmet

*********** Oct 31, 2018 Pre-tacos. Oh, the carnage! (Full disclosure...Video #2 may be a little graphic) No visit to #CDMX is complete without a stop at Mercado de San Juan Gourmet.

La Esquina del Chilaquil

Take us back...this sounds soooo good right now! Dreaming of this extreme street food breakfast bomb innovation on the classic Mexican breakfast. It’s essentially an epic loaded nacho sandwich: torta bolillo bread, slathered in black beans, a large milanesa de pollo, power packed with red or green chilaquiles (tortilla chips soaked in salsa) and topped with crema and...

Ricos Tlacoyos y Quesadillas Light

************ Jun 19, 2018 Everyone deserves this. Everyone. An absolute must stop for breakfast every time I’m in #CDMX. Still dreaming about this tlacoyo. Refried beans oh so lovingly pressed inside this soft, thick and crispy blue corn fresh masa and topped with nopales (cactus), costilla de puerco, crumbly cheese and some fiery salsa. Taco Tuesday ushered in with...

Apuela, Ecuador with CHOICE Humanitarian * Homemade *

Finally! After nearly two weeks (and my relentless pleading for picante 😱), this sign was just what we needed! The hotter the better...who’s with me??? Sometimes you need to sign a waiver before you dive into the hot-or-die salsa. ☠️ And this hilarious warning sign from our ridiculously friendly and eager-to-please kitchen team was on point for this salsa with...

Pupusería El Paraíso

Where was your latest unexpected taco treasure?! Didn’t expect to find paradise in a trailer in the heart of industrial South Salt Lake—tacos AND pupusas “El Paraíso.” But for some reason the El Salvadorian signature pupusas were calling my name. So I opted for two...one with carne, beans and cheese and the other with straight up beans and cheese. Quite good!...and...

Itacates @ Mercado Tepoztlán

🔺🌮❤️ Check this OUT...Triangle stuffed tacos. Nothing better than walking through the market with the gang from @wejourney and stumbling across the local trademark food: Itacate. Blue corn, hand-pressed, thick, greasy, stuffed with tender and juice tinga (shredded chicken in a spicy sauce). Our first time seeing and eating this hometown fave. If you're in Tepoztlán...

Ojo De Agua

#TacoHijack! Because when you're on the #searchforterperfecttaco in #MexicoCity and you come across a breakfast this good, you have to stop. "I'm pretty sure this is the best breakfast sandwich I've ever had!" declared @vspice8 as she hopped on the urban swing nearby. Fresh figs, chipotle sauce, jamonserrano, manchego cheese, scrambled eggs all masterfully stuffed...
