While we were in Mexico City, our apartment was literally right next door to Salón Corona’s original location at Bolívar 24, so it became a second home for us. They also have a few other locations in the city that you can look up on their website.
For delicious, inexpensive tacos, draft beer and a great atmosphere, it’s worth checking out.
You’ll find most people are drinking a pint (tarro) of draft beer–claro (blonde) or obscura (dark). Shortly after getting your beer, you’ll be served some spicy, pickled vegetables (a mix of carrots, zucchini, cauliflower and hot peppers).
Then you need to make the hard decision of what tacos to order. Here are some recommendations:
- Tacos al pastor (Mexico City’s famous spit-grilled marinated pork that you see everywhere… a must-have)
- Tacos gringas (2 wheat tortillas filled with pastor meat and melted cheese… another must-have)
- Tacos mole verde (pork in a creamy, green sauce)
If you’re in the mood for some seafood, try the octopus (pulpo) ceviche.
Don’t worry about ordering everything at once. Food comes quickly, so feel free to order one round of tacos at a time so they stay warm and fresh. Enjoy!
