Since it opened on Broadway last year, Paleteria El Tajín has been a go-to downtown spot for both savory dishes and sweet treats. Whether you are craving a street taco, a paleta or both, this is the place to be.
When it comes to tacos at Paleteria El Tajín, there is no lack of choices. You can go for asada, al pastor, chorizo, grilled chicken or cochinita pibil (slow-roasted pork). The other choice is whether to choose a typical corn tortilla or one that it is handmade for an extra quarter – we think it's worth it.
There are plenty of sweet treats at Paleteria El Tajín – ice cream cones, banana splits and fruit cocktails adorned with chamoy and Tajin – but you can never go wrong with a paleta. Flavors range from lemon to watermelon to mango with chile to bubblegum, so you're bound to find one that you enjoy.
Paleteria El Tajín is offering its menu for takeout.
