Taqueria Orinoco review image

Taqueria Orinoco

You maybe already know that Orinoco has some of the best tacos in town, but we’re including it on this list anyway. Their tacos de chicharrón, featuring Monterrey-style fried pork rinds, are as hard to describe as they are hard to forget. You might be accustomed to crispy, potato chip-like slices of chicharron, but the Orinoco version involves a soft, melt-in-your-mouth interior and seared exterior so you get a mixture of textures—topped off with thin slices of avocado, and served with baby roasted potatoes and an array of homemade salsas. And, yes, you should also try their tacos al pastor, arguably the best in all of CDMX. In other words: Orinoco is exactly what you’re looking for after a few rounds of mezcal on a Saturday night.
