Tacos in Mexico City

For a taste of the north, head to this Monterrey-style taco restaurant. It's a favorite among locals after a night out, so for the best ambiance, get in line around 1am. Be sure to try the chicharrón (fried pork fat) – it's the specialty here and very different to what you usually get in Mexico City.
