Steak Tacos on the Cheap

On occasion, I take the metrobús home from ITAM and, when I do, I often pass by a park-side shack that sells steak tacos (map).  These tacos may be described as steak-and-cheese gifts from heaven, with thin sheetlets of grilled beef, melted queso oaxaqueño, warm corn tortillas, and creative salsas with cucumber, pineapple, radish, and something that might be jicama.  And although there are some upscale joints that do mighty-fine steak tacos, too, at 10 pesos apiece, about 70 cents, those here cost less than a fifth of the ones in La Condesa.

Granted, this little changarro may not be for the faint-of-stomach, as there’s not much in the way of refrigeration or seating (or running water); though, unlike most resorts in Mexico, you can watch the head chef and boss cook up some lovin’ on the grill right in front of you.  And the food will taste better here, too.
