You can find pretty much anything in CDMX: fine dining restaurants, old-school cantinas with a guy offering electric shocks from a portable homemade device, and even an exclusively hard-shell taco restaurant. But an American diner is the one thing that never existed in the city—that is until Ojo Rojo opened in Roma Norte. 

Ojo Rojo takes classic dishes—grilled cheese, tuna melts, and ruebens—and elevates them up a few notches while keeping the comfort foods intact. The grilled cheese is served on thick sliced brioche bread, the tuna melt too, and the reuben subs pastrami-flavored mushrooms for actual meat. Don’t miss the umeboshi suero, a salty carbonated beverage typical in Mexico with the added flavor of Japanese salty plums. This drink is a hydrating hangover cure, which makes Ojo Rojo an ideal stop if you had too many mezcales at their sister restaurant and hotspot Cicatriz in Juarez.
