mexico city recommendations
I am going to be in mexico for a week, any advice on where to go/visit? any interesting food markets or street food?
I am going to be there at the beginning of november.
Getting around the DF is a bitch. Do you know in what part of the city you'll be mostly, Polanco, Lomas, Downtown, Southern Mexico City, Condesa/Roma/Zona Rosa.
It's a big place so here's my brief list for Central and Southern Mexico City:
1) El Monje Loco
Universidad or Insurgentes Sur.
1) El Charro de la Ranas
Mixcoac, Periferico Sur, Downtown. High end tacos.
2) El Gallito
Southern Insurgentes. Guisado Tacos, think excellent home-cooking leftovers
3) El Tizoncito
Miramontes. Tacos al carbon, very hot sauces
1) Coyoacan Food Market, the one in the Coyoacan Civic Center,
by the Guadalupana Cantina, for Mexico City Style Deep-fried Quesadillas
2) Coyoacan Market by La Malinche, Good fonda food, late summer fall is Chile en Nogada Season
3) Mercado San Angel like above.
1) Fonda Don Chon in the La Merced Neighborhood, Downtown Mexico City, pre-Columbian Oaxaxan cuisine: venison, iguana
2) Arroyo or Enrique
