7 tacos for 7 days of the week

By | 7 March, 2017 | 0 comments

The proposal of San Ildefonso Market (Calle Fuencarral, 57) for the week of March 27th to April 2nd is Taco Week. Where can you find it? At Mi Taco, a place which defines itself as an urban taco restaurant of fine street dining. Here they serve tacos that are traditional from the whole of Mexico (Northern Mexico, Veracruz, Michoacán, Tlaxcala ones on Sundays, made with chicken and cuitlacoche sauce…). Tacos must not be confused with burritos, fajitas or quesadillas. Their medium size and the tortilla, generally made of corn, characterise this Mexican recipe that can be enjoyed all over the city. At Mi Taco, if you go during the aforementioned week and you order a Desperados beer alongside it (which has a touch of tequila), you will be able to choose between a t-shirt or glasses as a gift.

If you still fancy some more of this Mexican speciality, you can go to any of the two restaurants of Taquería Mi Ciudad, both centrally located (Calle Hileras, 5, and Calle de las Fuentes, 11), very close to Plaza Mayor. Mexican clients who have tried these two restaurants highlight the delicious cochinita pibil (slow-roasted pork) and al pastor (shawarma spit-grilled meat) tacos. The restaurants aren’t particularly fancy but their tacos make the trip worthwhile, as do its affordable prices.

At Takos, on Plaza del Carmen, they say that they are serve the best tacos in Madrid. This place tries to run away from the folkloric Mexican clichés in order to focus on the quality of its products. Try them for yourself and make your own mind up.

If you want something other than tacos, an excellent Mexican restaurant is Cutzamala Mex Food, where you can also try micheladas (beer, lime juice and spices) prepared to perfection and some delightful margaritas. Among their new dishes, make sure you order birria de res, a traditional Mexican beef stew from Jalisco.

Lastly, a classic from the city of Madrid, Taquería del Alamillo. Don’t miss out on their chile en nogada (chillies filled with a mixture of meat), ceviche and rajas poblanas (creamy chillies). Check out their menu here to kick-start your hunger.
