One of the favorite dishes of Mexican cuisine are the tacos, those tortillas stuffed with any stew – really anyone – that is served accompanied by some ingredients such as onion and cilantro (aka “weeping and grass” for those who have plenty of neighborhood), as well as a good sauce and lemon. Oh, just to describe them and even our mouths watered.

The tacos are good for every occasion: either for the birthday celebration, for the meeting with friends and even to lower the party when you leave the club at 3 in the morning, these tortilla poems are, without a doubt, the favorites of the Mexicans, which is why you can practically find a taquitos stand in every block of any city, in any state. Now, can you imagine seeing on a map all the positions that exist in the country?

That was made possible by Baruch Sangines, geographer of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and demographer of the Latin American Faculty of Social Sciences (FLACSO), who as part of the so-called # 30DayMapChallenge, – where people participate making their own maps with information they obtain in databases – released a map of where, with lights, it puts all the taco stands that exist in Mexico. That beautiful! 

Through his Twitter account, Baruch published the map with all the places where taquitos serve in our beautiful Mexico, all with the help of the data that he could collect in the National Statistical Directory of Economic Units (DENUE) of the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI), and which he called Taco Universe. Here we leave you to see this beauty:

As you can see, it is the center of the country where the largest number of taco stands is concentrated, compared to states such as Sinaloa and Baja California. Of course, it is worth mentioning that these positions are the only ones that are registered in the DENUE platform, so it is quite likely that many of the positions that also inhabit some states of the Mexican Republic have not yet appeared.
