El Califa is a well-oiled taco machine and open until 4am every day. Our favorite taco here is the al pastor, but you really can’t go wrong. If you’re on a quest to eat as many tacos as possible during your time in Mexico City, you should know this is a one-minute walk from one of El Farolito’s many locations, too.

Le Tachinomi Desu
Le Tachinomi Desu is a standing-room-only wine/sake bar in Cuauhtemoc, and while it gets cramped, it’s one of our favorite places to drink in the city
Mexico City has plenty of sushi, but Kyo is our favorite place to get it. There are only 13 seats in the restaurant, so be sure to make a reservation.
This bar down a flight of stairs in the heart of Zona Rosa is hidden, but has a beautiful interior and tiki-style drinks that are great.
