El Califa is a well-oiled taco machine and open until 4am every day. Our favorite taco here is the al pastor, but you really can’t go wrong. If you’re on a quest to eat as many tacos as possible during your time in Mexico City, you should know this is a one-minute walk from one of El Farolito’s many locations, too.
