    100 places to eat like a local

    Antojitos Méxicanos

    When I went to México for the first time last September, I was 100% sure the food would make me miserable. I was soooo wrong! I am back in the states and I can't stop thinking about all the delicious cuisine I encountered, especially at Super Taco Del Valle in Mexico City. What makes this place special is the great taste at great prices. It is located in an area that sees mostly lower to middle class professionals, so it is definitely not fancy and touristy. I would go 3 or 4 times out of the 5 days I was at work.

    The best gorditas, tacos, enchiladas, flautas, tortas, quesadillas. I especially loved the tacos de longaniza, which are so full of flavor. The gorditas were also amazing. I could not go a meal without ordering a couple of flautas too. The best part of this place is that on top of the prices that were the same as what you paid at stands on the street, you could be sure of cleanliness, and you could get all these different foods at one place, whereas most local places you found around would only serve tacos, or gorditas or flautas.

    Everytime I went there during lunch time it would be full with other workers on their lunch break, which made it very vibrant. The service is also great and the food is plenty.

    I went to more pricy restaurants and food places in México City which were not nearly half as good as this one, in the more touristy areas. I was so lucky that my job was near this place because otherwise I would not have come across it.

    I would absolutely recommend this place to any person visiting México City because you will feel like a local enjoying the great food that locals eat.
