Get Piled-Up Tacos Al Pastor at El Huequito

El Huequito
Bajo Puente, Local 4
Mexico City, MX 08400

This chain serves excellent tacos—fast, hot and pitch perfect. The al pastor is particularly good, the pork vibrantly seasoned, lashed with citrus and chile, and piled onto the spit. The taquero shaves off slivers with a machete, piles it into a mound the size of a haystack and serves it flanked with tortillas. It can feed two. The salsa caddy features more than seven different kinds to load on the spice. Alambres (grilled beef), soups and cheese fondue-like queso fundido are also good bets.
