Mercado Olympic

Time Out says

This Downtown street food destination in the Piñata District is a blocks-long collection of vendors selling toys, trinkets, dried goods and one-off food stands proffering dishes from all over Mexico and El Salvador. Here, long-standing vendors sell aguas frescas, birria, tacos, pupusas, churros and elotes—as well as the excellent, juicy al pastor from Tacos El Chivo. Regional hits from Mexico City and Puebla predominate at Mercado Olympic, but you’ll find a few vendors from Sinaloa, Oaxaca and Michoacán as well. It’s one of the few places you can also reliably find pulque, a fermented pre-Hispanic beverage made from the agave plant with an ABV similar to beer.
