Travel Guide: Mexico City
Mexico City is such an exciting place right now to visit! The city is filled with so much culture, authenticity and hidden gems. It’s a culinary experience you can’t compare to many other places, the restaurants are so beautifully designed and the food is exceptional. We tried to hit as many places as possible and here is a round up of the notable ones I would recommend to anyone…
This was my favorite meal in Mexico City, I loved absolutely everything I ate! A fresh take on Mexican food in a cool hip atmosphere.
A french restaurant with simple, fresh dishes in a beautiful old mansion.
A farm to table restaurant, with seasonal and local dishes that are constantly changing!
This low profile Japanese restaurant was one of my places to go at night! There is no signage outside, just a sliding door that leads you to a small standing bar, where they serve 5 dishes, natural wines, sake with great music. Upstairs, there is a Tokyo Music Bar which is a great spot post dinner.
Continuing with the Japanese food, we went for lunch at Mog Bistro on our last day and were so incredibly happy that we ended the trip on a high note. Some of the best ramen and dumplings I've ever had.
Other notable restaurants:
We stayed at Four Season's during our trip and we loved it! Impeccable service, great location and the comfiest beds ever. It's also home to Fifty Mils, which was named top 50 bars in the world!
If you want to stay in a more boutique hotel then try Nina Local House. It's quaint, beautifully decorated and feels instantly like home. We went for breakfast one day and fell in love with it's charm.
The city is filled with amazing coffee shops:
One of the most interesting places we visited was Casa Gilardi house which was designed by Mexican architecture Luis Barragen's. It's such a unique house to explore, I would highly recommend booking a tour there!
Market La Ciudaela
There is so much to discover in Mexico City, it's a place you definitely want to return to, to see more!
