The red-and-yellow picnic benches at this lo-fi gem are never short of a roaming gastronome, here for super-authentic Mexican snacks. The secret weapon is the Rube Goldbergian machine, which transforms additive-free masa into super-tasty tacos and tamales.

The guys here are purists, their tacos adorned with a simple garnish of cilantro, onion and lime. Other must-tries include the pork-broth pozole soup, spiked with chopped onion, radish, oregano and crushed red peppers. Cool down with a horchata fresca (a spiced rice and almond milk drink) while cheering on El Tricolor.
