i went straight to tacos gus after arriving in mexico city, the new taco stand opened by the guy who used to run tacos el guerro (the former best tacos in the entire world, usurped by gus). i asked if he remembered me (from the summer that i moved to mexico city in order to eat his tacos every day), and he said "yes, you used to have long hair, and you would come always and ask for vegetarian, and you were always surprised that i would know exactly what tacos you would like every day". and he gave me a hug. swoon, food crush. i ate the most amazing cilantro croquette taco with beans and quesito. also cheese stuffed chile poblano con gaucamole and cilantro rice. zucchini with guacamole + quesito. acelgas (chard). breaded cheese stuffed quelites (a leafy green) stewed in tomato. roasted chile and potatoes. seasonally they have other amazing dishes like stewed cauliflower, flor de calabaza, etc.mm....
they also have crazy meat dishes like tripe, etc, if thats your thing....
