Readers’ Picks for Mexico City
WHERE TO EAT
Mexico city is an amazing place to eat. From its street food to the fine dining. Try Azul y Oro for a casual meal and Pujol (pujol.com.mx) for a fine dining experience.

Markets, street food and small tacquerias are highly recommended. Usually the tacos/tortas are made fresh and excellent quality. My favorite restaurant was La Toma de Tequila at Centro Médico Metro station. Chihuahua cuisine. The owner and staff went out of their way to please.

If you like seafood and shellfish, I would recommend Danubio near the Zócalo (danubio.com). We had a great lunch and the restaurant has a lot of history.

I just returned from DF and ate excellent everywhere, but I must say the best was Jaso (jaso.com.mx) in Polanco. Order the tasting menu and don’t miss dessert!

For breakfast before touring downtown Mexico go to El Moro, a churrería at Eje Central Lázaro Cárdenas 42 . They have four different kinds of hot chocolate and churros. This place has been around for over 70 years.

Bar La Opera (Avenida 5 de Mayo, corner of Filomeno Mata, Metro Allende or Bellas Artes) really is delightful, not just for the lovely dark wood, brass and mirrors, but for a generally comfortable atmosphere. I had probably the best margarita there (45 pesos?) and a very nice flan, an excellent piña colada another night.
