If you started reading this list scanning for the best taco spots, focus your eyes here. El Turix is a little hole-in-the-wall taqueria and home to not just the best tacos in CDMX, but some of the best you’ll find anywhere in the world. The menu is small (there are four things total) and served Yucatan-style, meaning everything will be filled with sweet, citrus marinades and salsas. Your first order of business needs to be the cochinita pibil tacos, which come with slow-roasted pulled pork cooked with achiote paste and citrus juices, but it’s the panucho, an open face tortilla with thicker corn dough, that’ll be the reason you come back again before you head to the airport. Know that there is very limited seating here, so expect to eat your tacos like everybody else - while sitting on the curb with your face buried in plastic wrap.
