Are there still tacos in front of the Mexican Embassy?

Looking for something near 39th and Park, without walking up to Pampano.

    I don't think she ever sold tacos. Tamales for sure and possibly tortas. I don't know if she's still there, hopefully someone else can help you out.

      I heard she's still there, but I haven't been there myself for a while.

        Ahh, tamales. In that case: any taco suggestions near 39th and Park?

          If you don't mind walking a little bit, the best tacos you'll find are at the El Rey Del Sabor Carts. The closest ones to you are on 49th & Park, and 43rd & 6th.

            El Rey Del Sabor's chicken and steak tacos were delicious. As was their tamale.

            I'd actually been to the cart on 60th before.. for a burrito, which was not anything special.

            How does Pampano compare to this?

            Thanks!

            She sold tamales. I haven't specifically sought her out recently but I walk by often and don't recall seeing her in a long time.
