Mexico City: Taqueria El Faraon in Condesa

These are for the tacos. Fresh avocados in abundance.

(Can you believe avocados are $2.50 each at Whole Foods in NYC?)

And these are the halved limes and housemade salsas. There are four salsas in total and they range from spicy to very spicy. Don’t forget…

…the black beans…

…and the caramelized onions.

Here what Aletia deemed “crispy cheese!” I don’t know the formal name, but it’s hard not to love. Like the shell of a dosa, only made with one ingredient: cheese.

Are you ready for the tacos?

Al pastor!

Forgive me, I’m not a purist when it comes to tacos. Load everything on. Avocado, squeeze of lime, two salsas. A sip of Coke and then devour.

Bistec con queso!

Ready to eat.

And then, Arrachera! This was my favorite.

Can’t lay off the fresh avocados.

I had a whole avocado (with a sprinkle of sugar) for breakfast this morning. Couple with a pot of oolong tea, and that is the breakfast of champions.

    Yeah! Avocadooos.That's what I miss most about being in Latin America tasty cheap food (and seafood) + avocados! Haha. The absurd amount of avocados spilling over wagons, trucks and fruits baskets. It's Latin America's common fruit. It has to be less than a US quarter for one in Mexico. Disheartening to see that it is not the case here in the States.d.

    Hi Allan! Hahahah, looks like your wee is off to a good start :)Diana! Agree 100% We had avocado at least twice a day, every day. I love how it can be incorporated into every meal. And they were also so fresh, so ripe. It's what I miss most now ^_^
