Everyone hits their taco limit at some point during any trip in Mexico City, which is the perfect time to stop by Pozoleria Teoixtla. This neighborhood spot has a big menu with everything from mole to tostadas, but you’re here for the pozole. In particular, a bowl of the smoky pozole verde, which we like to get with avocado and chicharrones added on top. There’s usually a guitarist or accordion player playing by the front door too, which is the perfect soundtrack for a long lunch with a few margaritas.
