El Huequito Restaurant
The classic place to sample tacos al pastor in the capital is El Huequito. This standing room only operation was founded in 1959. At El Huequito the sliced meat is bathed in a moderately picante salsa of chile de árbol, and enhanced with chopped onion and cilantro then rolled up in its small tortilla. Several salsas are available for serious chileros. The meat is juicy and succulent, with a smoky grilled aroma that lingers; the balance of salty, spicy, sweet and umami is just about perfect.
