We’ve just spent 5 nights in Mexico City, what an interesting and cultural city. I’ll be honest, our arrival in Mexico City was one that filled me with a mix of excitement and nerves. Nerves in part because Mexico is not portrayed as a tranquil and safe country. Excitement because this trip has been at least a year in the making and to be honest with you we really didn’t know what to expect.
Alipús Condesa – my daughter and I shared a dish of organic chicken with a delicious cactus sauce. It had a curry consistency and the sauce was very light and refreshing.
Patagonia Restaurant – this is an Argentinean restaurant and has many tables outside in a fairly quiet and pretty street. We especially enjoyed the grilled octopus the two times we visited.
La Pantera Fresca – this is an ice cream/popsicle shop and it is extremely popular with locals for good reason. The flavours are very natural and the choice is amazing. Limon (lime in Spanish) was tangy and refreshing. Coming from a country where gourmet ice creams are expensive we were pleasantly surprised by the quality and price.
El Tizoncito – this was a great lunch spot when we had spent a morning sight seeing and everyone needed food fast. The tacos are so delicious and fresh, you can watch them making them in the open kitchen. A really healthy and filling meal which was cheap by Australian standards. We visited their restaurant on Tamaulipus 122, Col. Condesa.
