This was the first stop on our Eat Like a Local food tour. The tacos were amazing and the salsa was the best I'd ever had.

Nice place, not luxury, but worth going there and experience a local typical Mexican food! The entries are fantastic and the food excellent!

Good tacos . Horrible location

Known for its constant cultural and gastronomic
developments, Roma, is a beautiful neighborhood that
was once the place for poets such as Kerouac and
Ginsberg to call home. Galleries, museums and even
private residences are on beautiful display when
walking through Colima street to do some necessary
shopping or when going to the classic Cine Tonalá to
enjoy a delicious dinner and a great film. Top notch
