Order the guacamole and have it with chicharrones, mind blowing. Delicious margaritas, and every plate was so good and exceptional. Great place to go with family, chat, catch up, share plates and enjoy.

Home of the Tepeneca people, Azcapotzalco has remained
faithful to its roots even as time has passed.
Beautiful details abound throughout its gardens,
houses and other historical buildings such as the Casa
de la Cultural. The works of Siqueiros, Diego Rivera
and O'Gorman are in abundance and should not be missed
while exploring the area. Walk through the streets and
have a taste of the neighborhood, which can be found
