Mexico City Restaurant and Drink Recommendations

What a great city for eating!

I’d researched on the internet and found Aguila Y Sol was one of the hottest restaurants…but closed.

So, our choice was Pujol, in Polanco. It was terrific.

I also had a great meal at the Basque restaurant Tezka in Zona Rosa.

I also ate at both branches of La Tecla.

And though warned that Casa Lamm (on Alvaro Obregon) might not have as good food as surroundings, our meal was lovely – and the building and atmosphere is Beautiful!

John and Aran introduced me to Mezcal at Red Fly on Orizaba. A must! (Though when I went back and tried to order on my own, I wasn’t as successful).

And my biggest recommendation is to drink as many “tequila banderas” as possible:

“Order a ‘bandera’ (Spanish for ‘flag’), and your tequila will be served with a lime and another shot glass with ‘sangrita’, a tasty blend of tomato and citrus juice. (The combination is red, white, and green…the colors of the Mexican flag.)”

It’s to be sipped (first tequila, then lime, then sangrita) not sculled (Australian for downed quickly) – and all the locals seemed to have it as an aperitif or with their meals. Fantastico!
