San Angel Inn
Hit up San Angel Inn after the Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo house. It can get touristy, but the excellent Mexican food and patio make up for it.
Bosforo is a bare-bones mezcaleria in Centro Historico where you’ll head for one drink and end up leaving three hours later.
Nicos is a drive, but it’s worth the trip for excellent food from a family-owned traditional Mexican spot. Get the enchiladas and duck mole.
Churrería El Moro
You can get churros plenty of places in Mexico City, but none are quite as good as the ones from El Moro.
Jenni’s Street Quesadilla
Jenni’s serves some of the best street food in Mexico - get a quesadilla and sit on the curb to eat it and remember what pure happiness feels like.
There are too many bakeries to count in the city, but Panaderia Rosetta across from Rosetta in Roma is one of the best - get the guava pastry.
Head to El Cardenal in Centro Historico for the best breakfast in the city. Be sure to pair your nata with a concha.
