Although the name isn’t exactly family-friendly (ask your Uber driver en route why), this place is great and one of the most interesting new seafood restaurants in CDMX. Focused on Sinaloa-style seafood and born in a simple stand at a nearby market, Don Vergas became a rotating pop-up before finally landing at this stand-alone space in Cuauhtemoc. Its cult-like following (which we are 100% a part of) should tell you it’s a must-try while in Mexico City and everything on their menu tastes as fresh as if you were in a Mazatlan seafood shack. If you have to focus on one thing here, make sure it’s the tostada embarazada (loaded with shrimp, octopus, crab meat, fish, and scallops), which might just be the biggest, most delicious tostada we’ve ever tried - especially when paired with a michelada or two.
