Dig Into Juicy Barbacoa at El Hidalguense

El Hidalguense
Campeche #155
Mexico City, MX 06760

Open only Friday through Sunday, this restaurant must spend the rest of the week studying the art of Hidalgo-style barbacoa: mutton that is wrapped in agave leaves and slowly steam-roasted over mesquite wood. The kitchen is masterful at its craft and has been doing it for decades. Like all good BBQ restaurants, you can order by weight here, then fashion tacos with all of the fixings from the meltingly rich meat.
