La Onda


Barrilaco 420, Miguel Hidalgo
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Before taquerias were even a thing in the posh Lomas de Chapultepec colonia, La Onda was already a mainstay. It’s an institution for anybody who wants a place that feels down to earth, where you might run into the upper-class residents of this neighborhood but also office workers and even a celebrity or two. Their taco de costilla con tocino y queso is definitely the way to go here, and their chicharrón de queso is also a great shareable dish. Walking in feels as though you’re traveling back in time—their most recent autograph on their wall of fame is from a Mexican soccer player, dated 1996.
