Tacos Alvaro - Restaurant Oaxaca - Mexico

(Mains: $0.70-$3, local beer-$1.60)

No frills, traditional Mexican eatery whose speciality is, unsurprisingly, tacos. Wash down the usual pork, beef and cheese combinations wrapped in warm corn tortillas and homemade salsa in a bright, friendly atmosphere while cheering on Mexican football or lucha libre (Mexican wrestling) with the locals. For the more adventurous, there's cheek, tongue or ear cartilage filling as well as quesadillas with a range of vegetable toppings for vegetarians. Service can be slow as they occasionally run out of tortillas and have to send out for more, but it's worth the wait. Menu and order forms are only in Spanish - bring a phrasebook! Also available for take away.
