Some of the most authentic tacos in the city! We suggest the gambas (shrimp) and the pastor, or pollo pibil, the burritos, and try one of the tortas. It melts in your mouth! They also serve beer. Great for lunch or a casual dinner. Cheap and cheerful

This is hands down the best brunch spot in the city. Best to go on a weekday as lineups can be quite long on the weekends. Make sure to try the lavender lattes and the waffles. Most original and tasty brunch. You can also go to the sister restaurant Chambar (which also has dinner, but a similar brunch with less lineups usually)
