When talking about Mexican gastronomy, one must inevitably talk about tacos and their different variations that represent the cultural diversity of Mexico. While in Michoacán the preferred tacos are carnitas, in Guadalajara birria are preferred, in CDMX they are pastor and in the north, asada. Thus, more than a taco, this March 31, it is about celebrating a regional seal that breaks into genres but unites Mexicans indistinctly.
Tacos are the second most requested category in the DiDi Food app and they are so versatile that, regardless of their kitchen twist, 6 out of 10 restaurants in Mexico have at least one type of taco on their menu. The cheapest taco in the app starts from 3.50 pesos. It is a golden chicken taco and is found in Guadalajara. The most expensive is in Toluca, it is fish roe and amounts to 72.50 pesos.
“The taquerías are one of the twists that move the gastronomic economy of Mexico the most. Only the tacos registered in DiDi Food generate around 70,000 jobs throughout the country and are mostly micro and small businesses. For example, a local taqueria in Ciudad Juárez has received 320 taco orders in just one day. At DiDi Food we know that this dish is the preferred option for Mexicans to eat any day of the week, especially because of how inexpensive they become, “said Andrea Vidales, Communication Leader for DiDi Food.
Although it seems that tacos are a nightly craving, in most cities more tacos are ordered during the day than at night, in fact, the preferred time of Mexicans to order tacos is on weekend mornings. In particular, Monterrey is the city that most enjoys ordering tacos for breakfast, while Oaxaca is the city that most asks for them at night.
The day that historically most tacos have been requested in the application, was last January 1, 2021, after the celebration to end 2020.
