Masala y Maiz

Written by

If you only have time for one meal in Mexico City, go to Masala y Maiz. Located on a Condesa side street, this tiny, daytime-only Mexican/Indian restaurant is essentially one long indoor concrete alleyway with a giant communal table going down the middle of it. A meal here doesn’t feel like you’re at a restaurant, it feels like you’re at a house party with 20 of your closest friends, who include the husband and wife team running the show. The menu changes frequently, but know you’re going to eat things like esquites in coconut milk, peel-your-own shrimp with jicama and pann puran, and patra (rice-stuffed colocasia leaves) bathing in a green chutney. You can certainly do your own ordering, but we recommend letting the chefs make those decisions for you - which will certainly include several bottles of natural wine.
