Without a doubt, it’s “Pollos Mazatepec.” While there are now several branches, I always go to the enormous one that’s on the federal highway to Atlixco, across from the exit for Chipilo.

Why do I love it? Mainly, it’s because of the salsas. There are six of them, plus slices of lime and pickled chiles, and what I like best is to start my meal with a salsa and handmade tortilla taco. Later, the smoked meats (chicken, sausage, pork, ribs) arrive, and they also pair wonderfully with all the sauces. But I still eat yet another purely salsa taco just to finish the meal.

 

For the best taste, you should combine 3 or 4 salsas at a time.
