A mandatory stop on my wife's culinary list and I'm so glad! Frijoles charro (beans with pork), gringo al pastore with flour tortilla and cheese and Arabe were all enjoyed with an edge given to the gringo pastore.

It is located just around the corner of the street 5 de Mayo in Puebla (the most important walking street) It is 2 restaurants.. one right across the other.
They specialize in tacos but they serve a few other dishes too.
It is by far the best tacos in the city and I have invited friends from Greece, Norway and all over Mexico and everyone loves them so I can't understand why they aren't listed in tripadvisor yet. They are the best known tacos in the city I am sure
