El Pescadito Condesa Branch Experience: Ambiance, Service and Ordering

Battered fish taco and Marlin taco from El Pescadito Taquerias CDMX

There’s almost always a line at El Pescadito. That’s how popular they are with locals and tourists alike. When I arrived, the queue wasn’t so bad and moved fast. There was a staff dedicated to managing the line and giving you the menu beforehand.

They took my drink order and saved a table using my drink. The casual spot has plenty of seating indoors and outdoors. The cook worked on my food as soon as I placed my order at the counter.

There’s a self-service salad bar at the center that offers different kinds of salsas, pickled red onion, limes, and coleslaw to top your tacos to your heart’s content.

Each taco serving was big enough, compared to other tacos I’ve tried in CDMX and Quintana Roo. So it was fortunate that I only ordered two as I was already full by the time I finished my second taco.

I got the Pescado and the Marlitun. I enjoyed the Campechano more than the Marlitun but only because the tortilla gave up on me halfway when I was eating the Marlitun. I had to ask for a fork to finish the remnants of my taco.

The short wait was worth it and the service was fast and friendly.

El Pescadito opened its first taqueria in March 1997 in the city of Hermosillo, Sonora in northwest Mexico. The small establishment became known for its shrimp and marlin tacos. It has since evolved to have more than 30 branches across Mexico.
