After visiting the Cementario Central, Seth and I celebrated Cinco de Mayo by sipping margaritas and chowing down on Tex-Mex at La Taquería. Located in the oh-so-posh Zona Rosa, this authentically spicy restaurant is without a doubt one of the cheapest in the neighborhood. We expected La Taquería to be rowdy with local gringos, but it was not so. Regardless, we enjoyed a pleasant evening on the patio drinking fruity tequila-based cocktails and eating shrimp and costilla BBQ-stuffed tacos. Super rico!
Bonus! Here is a Cinco de Mayo fact: Some historians have argued that France’s goal in 1862 was to help break up the United States—which at the time was in the midst of a civil war—by helping the southern Confederacy. However, the Mexicans had won a great victory at the battle of Puebla (5 May 1862) that kept Napoleon III from supplying the confederate rebels for another year, allowing the Union to build a powerful army.
