Before taquerías were even a thing in the posh Lomas de Chapultepec colonia, La Onda was already a mainstay. It’s a down-to-earth institution where you’re just as likely to run into the upper-class residents of this neighborhood as you are the local office workers, and maybe even a famous person or two. A round of the tacos de costilla con tocino y queso is definitely the way to go here. Walking in feels as though you’re traveling back in time—the most recent autograph on their wall is from a Mexican soccer player, dated 1996.
