In order not to cook and fulfill cravings that you didn’t even know you wanted, this weekend take a walk through the proposal of Barbecue Gonzalitos, northeast tacos.

The project arose in a pandemic by a couple of food lovers, among them, Andrés Lerma who, inspired and attached in some way to the traditional recipes of his native Monterrey, decided to open Gonzalitos. By the way, the name has to do with a very famous street up north.

On the menu you will find true gems, no more than 10 tacos, which are already favorites of your guests, such as machacado with egg, pork rinds in green sauce, beef barbecue and pork roast with beans that carry poison and wrapped in northern flour tortilla. that does not break, like the good ones. Whoops! In addition, I suggest that they accompany them with a very substantial and full-bodied clamato that has cucumber and olives. You can read the full review at

When and where

Saturdays and Sundays Álvaro Obregón 64, Colonia Roma Norte, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
