Phoenix New Times' Description

La Santisima, formerly La Condessa Gourmet Taco Shop, has a pretty simple menu - tacos, corn quesadillas, and burros - although the flavors aren't limited to Sonoran, like at many restaurants in these parts. There's seafood from the coastal regions, Oaxacan black mole, Mexico City-style chicken tinga, and melt-in-your-mouth cochinita pibil from the Yucatán. Don't miss the outstanding salsa bar (cilantro crema and strawberry salsa are a couple highlights), and be sure to try the thirst-quenching horchata with pecans and fresh fruit.

    Great Horchata. Quesa's are very nice and unique. Salsa Bar is very fresh with a nice variety of offerings.

    Went here for lunch today, Cochinita Pibil tacos w/ beans and rice. Fantastic meal, and forget fork-tender, the pork literally melts in your mouth. Nice flavor, but not overpowering, and when paired w/ the salsa and onions it's perfection. Rice was good, beans as well, albeit a bit salty for my taste. Salsa selection was great, all very fresh, enjoyed all of them. 3 1/2 stars,... More >>

    I have gone to Mexico City once before and the food here is reminiscent of the quality and type of food you get there. Its really authentic and not the typical number 4 chicken enchilada meal. I almost fell out of my chair when I had the conchita pibil!

    Order the Horchata! You will not regret it! And it was voted one of the top 100 favorite dishes in 2011 by the Phoenix New Times!

    If you're lucky enough to go on a Friday & snag one of the devilishly hot habanero margaritas before they sell out, do so. If u're there any other day of the week, u have to grab a Tamarind Margarita.

    Get their Horchata. It comes w/ fruits & pecans. Ask for no ice so you can eat the fruit & nuts w/ a spoon.
