Although my friends won’t be happy I’m sharing this spot with all of you (they’d prefer I kept it a secret), I could not resist. Tacos Tacos is a small Mexican bar in the Poble Sec neighbourhood that is very popular with the local crowd. Here’s why; it is delicious and cheap! The concept is simple; a no nonsense place with mainly tacos on the menu.
It is small and all set up for a ‘fast’ dinner. It’s not a restaurant to get comfortable, but it’s great if you are on a budget and for sure it’s the best place to fix your taco cravings. So don’t expect haute cuisine Mexican here, if you are looking for that, go to the nearby Mexican of Albert Adría, Niño Viejo.
The tacos at Tacos Tacos are quite small, and there is an amazing variety to choose from. I love that, because I can order 7 or 8 different flavours at least! My favourite? A classic conchinita pibil or the chicken mole (chocolate chicken!) are always in my basket.
During the week they often have amazing promotions going on, such as tacos for 1€ on Monday and Tuesday. It’s always quite busy and you cannot make reservations, so come early or prepare to wait a bit. Because it is a great spot to have some beers and celebrate a Taco Tuesday!
