Mexikanisches Restaurant · Roma Sur · 316 Tipps und Bewertungen

EricEric: The lamb barbacoa and the "quesadilla de sesos" (which is not a quesadilla in the tex-mex sense: more like brain tacos with a mix of other stuff) are both legit. Both dishes on the greasy side, fwiw.

EricEric: Outdoor stand doing five different tacos (pastor, suadero, longaniza, campechano, birria) and they're all great. 5 tiny tacos for 30 pesos. Glorious.

EricEric: Awesome little hole in the wall that only sells al pastor tacos. Get them con todo (with both red and green sauce) and squeeze some lime in to finish. They're small: you'll want at least two.

EricEric: The lechón taco is by far the best of the three taco options on the menu. These are fancy tacos at a sit-down bar/restaurant, so be prepared to pay about double what you'd pay elsewhere.

EricEric: AKA hipster tacos. More creative than your average taqueria, especially on the specials menu (on the back of the regular menu). Lots of wine, garlic, etc. Think ~40 pesos/taco, but totally worth it.
