DF / Mexico – Grilled Chicken Tacos


Mexico City (or D.F., i.e. Distrito Federal for the cool people) is one strange place. On the one hand is insanely overpopulated, and also one of the most polluted cities in the world. But like all of Mexico, none of it matters when it comes to the food.

DF / Mexico tries to bring this gritty, urban landscape of Mexico to another insanely overpopulated, but certainly not as polluted city called London. And with it come new spins and takes on classic mexican fare. For me, it’s always about the tacos. And the burritos. But this article is about the tacos. So shut up, burritos. You’ll get your chance some other time.

2015-11-01 DF Mexico - Chicken Tacos

Not one but TWO TACOS. Who said Taco Tuesdays?

First thing that impresses is how big these things are. I’ve gotten used to smaller, market tacos. This things were big and wholesome, and heavily stuffed. The Grilled Chicken tacos had some fancy habanero sauce and salsa, and they were as fun to hold as they were delicious. And just the right amount of spicy, since as we all know, Mexicans are masochists when it comes to food heat levels. Plus I bought chips, which, while not very mexican, they came with mexican inspired dips.

Add a very spacious setting, cool vibes and a very central location, and all I can say is arriba arriba! Viva Mexico cabrones!

Slimy? That habanero sauce will stick to your fingers and make them burn (not really)

Satisfying? Ayayay! A huevo! (Translation: awesome)
