48 Hours in Mexico City

Mexico City: vibrant, friendly, colorful, in-your-face Mexico City is a super fun place to visit

 

Eat:

Pujol - super famous, highlighted on an episode of Chef's Table

Condesa DF

Contramar - get the fish tacos

Mora Mora - acai bowls

Fonda Fina

El Caminero - I loved the tacos here!! I think there was one called a Chile Chester which was my favorite.

Sweets:

El Moro Churreria - I went here twice (they have many locations!). Always crowded, clearly a local favorite. Get the caramel dipping sauce.

Panaderia Rosetta - for baked goods

Fresh mango w/ chile sugar from the street vendors!

Do:

The best thing I did in Mexico City was a Luis Barragan architecture tour! They book up way in advance, so reserve early. I saw the San Cristobal stables and one of his homes in the heart of the city. I wanted to do a tour of his studio, but it was booked. Definitely do some research on Barragan-- so so cool and a dream to photograph his designs. 

Museo Soumaya - didn't go in, just photographed the beautiful exterior

La Ciudadela markets

Shopping at Carla Fernandez and other nice stores in Roma area

Frida Kahlo Museum

Stay:

We stayed at Chaya B&B and I loved it! There's a great coffee shop on the lobby level.
