I had heard about La Casa del Pavo from Lonely Planet. After a busy morning of exploring downtown Mexico City, I searched out the fabled restaurant specializing in turkey sandwiches on Peatonal Motolinia (a pedestrians-only street). The setting is very simple. You might have to...More

Food is great, turkey sandwiches and tortas are made simple but taste really good, the rest of the menu is quite simple but very well cooked. I usually prefer to take away the food because the place is not nice neither confortable.

Had a turkey torta for 40 pesos. It was extremely delicious. The turkey was not dry at all. Just as good as all of the other tortas available in DF. Be careful with the pickled jalapenos. They're very spicy!

The place is maybe not the nicest looking one, but it is very famous with the locals. The "tarta de pavo" and "tarta de bacalau" are delicious. Try them if you are looking for a "snack".

Tiny place, cheap, delicious turkey sandwiches! The Centro Historico has such wonderful food. This and El Cardenal are among the best!

It was a bit difficult to find good, inexpensive, authentic Mexican food in the Centro Historico neighborhood where we stayed. We're glad that Lonely Planet and Tripadvisor led us to La Casa del Pavo (The House of Turkey). Our server was very friendly. The turkey...More

Another great little find in the Centro Historico, and they specialize in turkey. Not Turkish food, no. Gobble, gobble turkey. And it's GOOD.

This hole in the wall serves only one thing, roast turkey. Turkey tacos, turkey tortas, turkey soup. All fresh, all delicious, this place moves a lot of turkey. Carvers up front, a few stools, some booths, a smattering of tables. If your stomach needs a...More
