I have to admit I’ve not been to Mexico yet, but this place gives me a feeling of how it could be. The Mexican wife of the Munich owner decorated the place – colourful walls, pictures of landscapes and people, even a piñata is hanging from the ceiling. The guys and girls behind the counter and the music are as Mexican as the chef and his recipes.
You have a choice between five fillings: Tinga (chicken), Amigo (beef and potatoes), Pastor (pork marinated with pineapple, chilli, onion and coriander), Carnitas (pork) or Flaco (vegetable mix with potatoes).
Those fillings either go in a burrito (with beans, rice, salad and guacamole) if you’re really hungry, a Quesadilla for medium hunger or Tacos for a quick snack. Tinga and Flaco are also available as a salad.
You can choose the hotness of your food on a scale up to 4. I prefer number 3, “Mexican”. If it’s not hot enough you can always spice it up yourself. The other way around is a little bit more difficult.
On Mexican holidays like the Dia de los Muertos they sometimes have music performances and special food and drinks, check their facebook page.
Take away (save time and use the opentabs app) is slightly cheaper, but I like to sit down, have a glass of their homemade lemonade and take in the atmosphere or browse in one of the books about the country and his inhabitants and culture.
Hasta pronto in Condesa.
