I also do not like taco cabeza (head) and lengua (tongue) but the fish tacos are good.
    Oh, if only there were a phone app that would translate Spanish into English!

However the 4 or 5 seafood carts on the main drag, across from the giant flag pole, are fresh and delicious. Did not see any Al Pastor tacos stand there day or night, WTF?

    Googles shows lots of interesting dishes served by various stores in Telefonica. When I got there the stores hang large menus with prices, but I could not order without seeing the dishes, pictures or at least descriptions of the main ingredients. I hate to order something and it turns out perrito or cato tacos with wagging tails hehe.

    Can someone with decent Spanish suggest to the stores to hang pictures of the dishes on their store fronts, or show wax models of the dishes? They should probably start with printed menus describing the main ingredients and how they are cooked, for the benefits of non locals.

    I just googled it and found great reviews. Thanks for the post as I now have another place to eat.

    Looks like a short cab ride or a long walk depending on your hotel.

    Here is a video link, in the first part of "Telefonica Gastro Park" and "El Punto Food Trucks". - Octopussy taco and burger sounds good! http://crossingsouth.com/videosmaps/...cks-and-trash/.

    Thanks for the info. I've been to a couple of taco stands in the Zona before, but will definitely try this one.

    Turn left after you go out of the front door. It is at the first street corner.

    There is no Hong Kong Taco Stand. Hong Kong is not affiliated with any taco stand but there is a stand that is in close proximity, which is undoubtedly the most popular stand in the zona. Walk out the front door of HK, hang a left. When you get to the corner you'll see it on your left. Go to the left side of the stand, where you order and pay and be given a ticket. Give the ticket to the taquero and he'll prepare your order. Tacos are $20 mx each.

    Hong Kong Taco Stand

    Guys -- I will be in Tijuana in a few weeks from now. Can you be more specific on the location of the HK Taco Stand. Is it out the front or back entrance of the Hong Kong club?

    Yeah, I forgot to mention. Gastro park is about 15-20 min walk from Ticuán, or an even quicker cab ride. Very close, but yet far enough from the same old tired spots.

They also have a brewery in the back, the beer is fresh and tasty. They even had a mini version Caesar's restaurant right there. I can easily spend a few hours at that place drinking beer and eating great food.

    Highly recommend this place.

    El Sopa 25 pesos.

    To Fahrenheit,

    That soup tastes like beef chuck boiled in its own juice, very rich, tasty, fatty. It goes well with the tacos al pastor. Locals eat it with tortillas dipped into the soup. The workers will give you a few free refills if you ask.

    The liquid fat, for some reasons, makes me horny quickly between rounds, probably blocking all arteries except those going down to the groin hehe. But it could inhibit libido in people with high cholesterol or blocked arteries problems. So try it out before going all out.

    The bros should also try fresh shell fish at the mariscos stand at the school girls corner in front of the newly-remodeled hotel Rapido on Constitucion, while looking up their high-school miniskirts hehe. The shrimp cocktails, camarron coctele, is fresh, scrunchy, tasty and delicious, all my wingmen like it. I usually order a small 50-peso cup with plain cracker, a very light dish with perfect balance of delicate tastes to add energy and spice to your stomach for sex. They also serve fresh raw oyster, cockles and clams in lime juice and salsa, calling it Mexican Viagra.

    Mexican chicas mostly prefer sea food over meats or carbs. Inviting them out for seafood and their eyes all light up. They would eat Azul's fried squid rings with relish while avoiding pizza and steak altogether. Azul's battered fried shrimp is tiny, tough and greasy, not worth the price. Azul's steak is a good deal at $10 for over 1 pound of rib eye. With Azul's free-appetizer coupon, you can order a steak and a seafood dish or a pizza for $10, enough to feed 4 people.

    That taco stand also has a beef soup with cilantro. They serve in a styrofoam cup. It's perfect for resting up in between rounds.

    I hit that taco stand every time I'm in LZ. They are pretty consistent with the quality and taste. Its a very popular place.
