Six places that tacos and tortas lovers must visit!
One of the most traditional places for taco lovers, Wayan’e has different locations all over the city, but the original is the one in Colonia Itzimná. They all have delicious tacos or tortas (baguette sandwiches) of “castakán,” (pork skin with meat attached) eggs with chile xcatic, “chilibuul,” or a variety of other options, that we are sure you will love. Make sure to arrive early for breakfast, because after a few hours there is nothing left!

For several years we have been seeing how this taco street stand has grown, still in the same location in the north part of the city, across the Periférico from City Center. Without a doubt it’s the best place to have some “tacos de canasta” (tacos served in a basket) or a variety of tacos and tortas such as machaca (shredded meat), pork cracklings with green sauce, “chilorio,” (pork fried in chile sauce), and much more. Tip: every weekend they prepare barbecue. So now you know where to go for a delicious breakfast!
