You have a lot of eating priorities when you’re in Mexico City - but a Oaxacan breakfast or lunch at Pasillo de Humo needs to be towards the top of your list. This is a big, light-filled space in Condesa with plenty of room for a group - so getting in won’t be much of an issue. What’s tougher, however, is deciding what to eat once you’re here. Everything on the menu seems (and is) worth ordering, and to do this place right, you need to try the multiple types of mole and at least one tlayuda - which is like a crispy, open-faced quesadilla. If you need further ordering inspiration, just go stand by the open kitchen in the center of the restaurant where chefs are caramelizing onions, stirring big pots of chorizo, and melting cheese between tortillas. We will warn you, though, you might want to stay there forever.
