Tlaco: “Comida Ancestral”

6188 0



Tlaco, a small locale on quiet calle Atlixco in the Condesa offers what the two handsome brothers who run it call “comida ancestral.” That is to say, simple antojitos, especially tlacoyos, the thick, eye-shaped filled masa snacks of the State of Mexico. They may come filled with spinach,  flor de calabaza, ayocote, a large, sweet bean, mushrooms, whatever is available in the market. Most offerings are vegetarian. Blue corn, prepared by the traditional nixtamalización process, is brought in from Puebla. An inexpensive ‘paquete’ includes a soup and an agua. In addition to the fonda, a pushcart sets up weekdays at the corner of Sonora and Av. Amsterdam, a block from Insurgentes.

Atlixco 155-A, between Alfonso Reyes and Campeche, Condesa
Corner Sonora & Av. Amsterdam, Condesa
Open Monday – Friday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Saturday until 4, closed Sunday
