Along with Taquería El Califa de Léon, a number of other Mexican restaurants were on the receiving end of the prestigious honor. According to the Michelin Guide, the stars were doled out based on each restaurant’s quality ingredients, masterful cooking techniques, personality of the chef, consistency in the menu, and harmony of flavors.

The stars were given as a part of Michelin Guide’s Mexico selection. A total of 157 restaurants were featured in the guide, with Taquería El Califa de Léon being among 16 restaurants to receive one star. This is the first time the French-based organization has created a guide for Mexican dishes, with the country joining other Latin American locations such as Peru, Argentina, and Brazil.

Every year, inspectors visit various locations on the hunt for eateries that meet the Michelin Guide’s standards. For the 2024 edition, Michelin inspectors visited other cities outside the capital, like Oaxaca, Baja California Sur, Quintana Roo, and Nuevo Léon. The restaurants spanned price range and fare, with everything from high-end seafood restaurants to farm-to-table eateries garnering recognition.
