Taqueria Orinoco serves some of the best tacos al pastor in Mexico City. I love this place. It’s fairly small and gets really crowded, and the air-conditioning doesn’t work very well. But you’ll forget about that when your tacos arrive. It’s the perfect spot for a light lunch before a 10-course tasting menu at, say, Pujol, Lorea or Quintonil. They open daily at 1pm and don’t close until 4 a.m.
