Chilakiller’s – a place that pays homage to the chilaquiles and its incredible tradition within the Mexican gastronomy.
Here you can find traditional chilaquiles (fried tortilla with sauce) accompanied by beef, chicken, cochinita pibil, scrambled egg and if that wasn’t enough, you can make your own mix, adding the final touch with cheese, beans, cream, and onion. One of the most recent favorites that you will find is the torta de chilaquiles: it’s no more than chilaquiles inside a bread roll, but it’s still one of the best ones.
The food prepared in this place is perfect any day, for lunch or dinner, or breakfast – the best for those after-party days when the hangover is killing you. For something to drink, you can order Mexican sodas, natural fruit water, beer and even the classic pottery coffee (café de olla), served in a clay jug.
Their desserts also exemplify some of Mexico’s best, such as arroz con leche (a style to prepare sweet rice), biscuits, or one of my favorites: jelly with rompope that together are amazing.
The place is adorned with lots of typical stuff you can find in small markets that still exist in different areas of the city; from the tablecloths to the walls you can immerse yourself in the culture and beliefs of Mexico.
On weekdays at lunchtime (14:00 to 16:00) you will only find a few people; on weekends, though, from morning to afternoon, you will have to wait in line, but it’s totally worth it.
