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.

Panadería Rosetta

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.

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.

Niddo

You'll find one of the best breakfasts in the city in Niddo, a small, indoor/outdoor cafe in the Zona Rosa with a Jewish-leaning menu.

Contramar

Contramar is a fun seafood spot for a group dinner in Roma - make sure you get the tuna tostadas and the fig tart.
