Los Panchos


Mexico City
@gofindalice

Address: Calle Tolstoi 9, Miguel Hidalgo, Anzures, 11590 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico
Date Visited: May 2017
Price: $$
Hours: Everyday 9:00am-10:00pm
Verdict/Summary: YES! A traditional casual Mexican restaurant with over 70 years of history (since 1945), Los Panchos is low-key casual spot located in the col. Anzures district of Mexico City. With very fair prices, excellent food and a great variety, the restaurant is always packed with locals from day to night. I had to wait 15 minutes for a table for two even though it was 3pm on a weekday!

The dishes are authentic, hearty and nothing fancy but satisfying. More than a taqueria though they do offer tacos, amongst various other popular dishes such as quesadillas, soups, salads, and various meats (especially famous for their carnitas).

I don't know why but avocados really do taste better in Mexico City. No wonder they add it in almost every dish (even in soup - my first time experiencing this). Always perfectly ripe and of the right texture. UGH SO GOOD. 

Recommended dishes: chicken soup & "Arrachera Pancho" (Mexican flank steak)

We started off with this "taco de bisteck" but unfortunately the meat was super dry (as it was meant to be) but not my cup of tea

Salsas and condiments that come with every table (the green salsa verde is the spiciest of them all!)

Super hearty and NOT oily chicken soup (caldo tarasco) topped with avocados (perfect avocados though I picked them out to eat separately from the soup). So so good!

Close-up of Mexican flank steak (Arrachera Pancho) - incredibly tender and juicy! Served with cactus salad. Definitely recommend getting this!
