Los Cocuyos

If you love tacos and street food, this late-night food stand is the place for you. Soak up Mexico City's vibrant night life as you savor deliciously unhealthy tacos made with everything from classic pork and chicken to local specialties like tripe, tongue and even cheek. Don't miss out on the suadero, prepared with twice-cooked beef that is first braised, and then seared on high flame; it just melts in the mouth. Their grilled sausages are another favorite. Their home-made salsas add that extra punch to every taco, with a burst of heat and latin spice. Los Cocuyos is the ideal place to stop by for a quick late night snack, you'll definitely be coming back for seconds.
