El Huequito started as a taco stand in 1959 and gained recognition for their unique take on tacos al pastor (highly recommended). Now they've grown into a small chain of restaurants and stands around town. We go to the one near our house on Bolivar and always order the same thing...
We always get a few tacos al pastor (of course) AND a side of tortilla chips to enjoy the six different home-made salsas in the center of the table.

There's nothing like having an old SLR laying around loaded with some high-speed black and white film. It's how most people learn about the mechanics of photography in school, but also, it's just fun. I love going back to this basic way of shooting now and again. This roll spans the last three months and includes my excursion to San Miguel de Allende to visit my dad.

Now that we're settled in the Centro Historico, we're discovering a new crop of street food stands and cheap restaurants. These tostadas around the corner are pure heaven. I go for the two middle options: salpicon (pulled beef in a pico de gallo with avocado) and tinga de pollo. It's one of the best tingas I've ever tried -mostly onion and super-moist.
