Amaya, General Prim 95, Juarez
Perfect for dinner as God intended, and in the fashionable colony. You’ll be welcomed with open arms like VVIPs. You’ll discover their creative menu, which works very well to share among several. With a pleasant setting that is neither too intimate nor too festive, you’ll also have access to fantastic wines and tantalizing cocktails. Whether you want to with your amigos, familia or best half, their menu has everything you need! Share a delicious lamb platter or tartar accompanied by fresh and hand-picked ingredients!
Bellinghausen, London 95, Juarez
It is still possible to eat well in the Zona Rosa, although it is hard to believe. In Reforma, there is La Lanterna, which is a haven of fine Italian food. With white tablecloths, birds in the garden, and the occasional celebrity, it’s the ideal sanctuary for a hearty meal and a delicious tequila to whet your appetite. And why not try the Filete Chemita, concocted using original recipes, or the delectable onion soup and the Chamorro.
The Cardinal, Marconi Esq. Tacuba, Downtown
Most tourists end up visiting it, and for that reason, we are not going to stop recommending it, quite the contrary! Or that we were such snobs. They explore this place because it is an excellent restaurant, which is always full, especially during breakfast. It will be for the warm sweet bread (you have to ask for it with cream), made at home, or the chocolate they offer you from the moment you are assigned a table. Others prefer coffee or juice to get started. Then there are the Huevos Rancheros on horseback or the Gorditas from Hidalgo. So many options! They all seem satisfied. El Cardenal is a must-see when visiting the Historical Center (there are other branches, but we like this one in Plaza Tolsá, for the view).
The Parnita, Yucatan 84, Rome
A classic that, however, has only been around for a few years. But it gives the impression that it has been around for a lifetime, judging by the warm treatment that its owners offer to diners, whether new or old. Of course: it is important to book before, or arrive early. Al Parnita comes to eat deliciously and without spending a fortune. They have good mezcals and tasty desserts. But his specialty is travelling Mexican food, which makes you travel to different parts of the Republic: the southeast, the coast, downtown. Tacos, especially you have to order the tacos, which frequently change. And the soups! The best restaurant in Rome? The most beloved, that without a doubt. Because of the friendly atmosphere, the fresh waters, the feeling of eating at your uncles’ house.
Lots of Options!
We would never finish recommending good restaurants in Mexico City. For now, the ones mentioned above are enough, and the Fonda Nomeolvides, with vegan options in the Escandón neighbourhood, as well as the Las Lupitas picnic area (“the house of the best atole in the universe”) in the beautiful direction of Santa Catarina, Coyoacán, and Nicos, in Clavería since 1957 and with original and well-executed recipes. Likewise, there is the pozole de Moctezuma 12, more or less hidden in Guerrero’s surroundings, but that the genuine connoisseurs locate well.
