About request an edit to this page

The restaurant specializes in Mexico City–style street food: tacos, of course, tortas, quesadillas, but also lesser-known specimens from El Districto Federal like pambazos, alambres and huaraches. A chilango is a slang term for residents of Mexico’s capital city. Many of the dishes are named after Mexican singers and politicians or refer to inside DF jokes that escape me. There’s also a taco named after Monica Lewinsky. It’s made with beef tongue. The smart and smart-ass attitude fits with a restaurant that’s an ode to the third-largest metropolitan region in the world.
