We arrive in Mexico City late, and won’t even be there for 24 hours before flying out to Tuxtla ….. this presents a real dilemma for us, requiring us to narrow down the places we eat. We’ve eaten our way through CDMX more than a few times, and on a restricted time frame, but this will be the shortest eating walking, walking in order to eat stop. EEK. I’m already dreaming of the places to quickly stop for a bite.
Churros are a natural start for us! This place, El Morro, is one of the oldest Churreria spots in the city, and they are delicious. It is usually easy to get a table early in the day, but you should see the lineups late afternoon and into the night!
Next head to a mercado – the food is always amazing in the markets, and once we’ve had our coffee and churro it is time for a savoury bite ….. how about carnitas? These tacos are mouth watering pork goodness.
Every bit of the pork is waiting to be chopped up and served in a taco. We loved the tortillas they made at this stand, they have fresh herbs in the tortilla masa and added so much flavour.
No shortage of amazing toppings for your taco.
It’s hard to only eat a couple of tacos at this place, but so many more steps and bites to come …
Time to lighten things up a bit …. how about some fruit? These cups of fruit and vegetables are available everywhere and bursting with freshness.
Look for these vendors on the streets – you can choose whatever you want in your cup!
Don’t miss the mango!
How about a little ceviche next? So refreshing and absolutely delicious.
When you walk this much, your little 5 year old legs need a boost from big sister …..
La Docena – our favourite oyster bar. These blue crab tostada’s with habanero foam are the bomb! Served with a crisp white from the Baja region its a perfect bite.
Crunchy oyster croutons served with fresh greens and creamy avocado – love this salad.
Save room for dessert – these pastries are a great way to finish off a day.
Less than a day to eat, so many bites waiting …… we will get off that plane with an appetite and start walking!
