Visible from a distance, the pink neon sign “Tacos” means that we found the place, but the crowds of joyful youngsters pouring out leave us no hope of finding a free table. So we push towards the main counter, taking a peek at the kitchen where the famous tacos (better than the ones we ate in Mexico!) are prepared, before moving on to the real thing…
Through the white door next to the kitchen, we get to a secret bar that looks like a mix between a cave and a surfers bar where we can order divine cocktails, from Santa Margarita to Pisco Disco. In the end we are left singing the praises of Candelaria… Any melody will do!
We just love this eccentric combination of a taqueria with a secret bar.
