Taqueria y Carniceria La Mexicana

Tacos in Monterrey

Done up like a Mexican party dress, this eatery/butcher shop is an explosion of colors – think talavera tiles and piñatas. Tacos de Canasta (steamed tacos) are the specialty and come filled with everything from beans or spicy potatoes to ground beef or chicharrón (fried pork belly). Order at the counter and eat at one of the bustling communal tables.

Come on weekdays for the afternoon special, when you can get five tacos and a bottomless agua (fruit drink) for M$45.
