Perfect For:LunchQuick Eats

Chicken is something that Mexico excels at, especially when you consider that it’s a key ingredient of enchiladas, mole, and chilaquiles. So a restaurant entirely focused on poultry is a welcome addition to CDMX. From a Middle Eastern-inspired grilled flour tortilla sandwich slathered with labneh and shredded chicken, to the city’s most famous dish, tacos al pastor (with chicken subbed in for pork, of course), the options here are varied. We like to come here for a late lunch and get the whole roasted chicken with a side of rice, potatoes, and guacamole (which also comes with freshly-pressed corn tortillas). Basically, enough to keep you going until your 9pm dinner reservation. The team behind this fun spot runs Mexico’s most famous churros chain, El Moro, so they’re no strangers to excelling at a short menu.
