You probably already know that Orinoco has some of the best tacos in town, and even if you’ve been two or three times before, you should still prioritize at least one late-night visit during your trip. Definitely get a round of the tacos de chicharrón—instead of crispy, potato chip-like slices of fried pork rinds, Orinoco’s are soft on the inside and seared on the outside, resulting in a fun mix of textures. And, yes, you should also try their tacos al pastor, which are arguably the best in all of CDMX. In other words: Orinoco is exactly what you’re looking for after a few rounds of mezcal, especially since theyre open until 3:30am during the week and even later on the weekend.
