It’s hard to miss this bois­ter­ous ta­que­ria – a Mex­i­can restau­rant spe­cial­is­ing in ta­cos – which is usu­ally packed by 7pm. The menu in­cludes que­sadil­las, tosta­di­tas (mini tor­tillas with top­pings), and large mains like pork ribs for shar­ing. Knock back your na­chos with one of their mez­cals, a strong tequila-like drink made from agave, a spiny Mex­i­can plant. OR­DER TH­ESE:

Zingy and re­fresh­ing, the Ce­viche de Ca­marones y Pulpo ($20) with diced prawns and oc­to­pus will get your ap­petite rar­ing to go.

The Taco de Chorizo Con Res ($10), loaded with mor­eish chorizo and braised beef brisket, was our favourite.

The Baja Fish Taco ($11) fea­tures beer-bat­tered red snap­per and mango salsa laced with a fiery chipo­tle mayo sauce. Eat it quickly as the soft corn tor­tilla gets soggy fast.

Don’t leave with­out try­ing the Pas­tel de Elote Azul ($14), a crunchy, crumbly blue corn cake that’s fin­ished off in a pan and served with mez­cal cream, fresh berries and a driz­zle of sweet agave nec­tar.
