$$$$Perfect For:LunchWalk-Ins

One of Mexico City’s best kept secrets is that there’s a really great restaurant hidden below the city’s most famous museum. The Museo Nacional de Antropología is massive and can take hours to explore, so grabbing lunch halfway through is a smart way to break up a visit. Similar to the museum itself, the menu is divided into different regions, including Baja, Central, Pacific, Northern and Southern Mexico, and the Riviera Maya. If you’re with a group, split the guacamole and the cochinita pibil. And if you can, avoid Sundays when the museum’s entrance fee is waived for locals (and it gets subsequently packed).
