Mexico City Food Recommendations

#1

Long time lurker, first time poster!

I know this might be the wrong board but no one answers questions on the Latin America food board.

So I was just wondering if any of you had personal recommendations for places to eat? The more local the better in the DF.

Thanks!

Book a walking tour or two, depending on your interests, of Markets, or Mezcalerias, or Tacos/Street Food through eatmexico. We did that and it was awesome.

@CiaoBob Thanks for the recommendations, I’ll definitely check out the culinary food tours. They look awesome.

Any other specific stands/markets etc that you recall or would recommend?

There are a ton of vendors and other interesting things at and around the Mercado de San Juan in the downtown historic centre.

It may be touristy, but I like El Cardenal. I’ve only been to the location in the Hilton.
