    As our days in Mexico City come to an end, we’re drawn back to El Moro Churrería, a place that has sweetened our stay thrice.

    Fish tacos at El Pescadito Roma

    We were thinking of ending our trip with the fish taco. We were hoping of something reminiscent of the flavors from the Mission District in San Francisco. We found ourselves at El Pescadito Roma in Mexico City. The fish taco is a crispy delight. The one we remembered was still nicer. The tuna taco, while…

    Cocktail With Clouds at Miralto

    Perched high in Torre Latinoamericana, Miralto Restaurant offered us more than a meal—it presented a journey through Mexico City’s skyline. This architectural marvel, a testament to modern engineering since its completion in 1956, has withstood numerous earthquakes, standing as a beacon in the city’s heart. Iconic landmarks like Palacio de Bellas Artes, Palacio Nacional, the…

  • Victoria beer from Mexico

    Victoria beer from Mexico

    Originating from Toluca in the State of Mexico, Victoria holds the distinction of being one of the oldest beer brands in the country, with its production dating back to 1865. Victoria struck me as somewhat flat, lacking the robustness often found in other beers. However, it was noticeably gassy, which added a different dimension to…

  • Late dinner at Yoru

    Late dinner at Yoru

    For late dinner we went Yoru! Yoru’s a Japanese restaurant is a little dark, and they open till 10 PM. We began our meal by sharing a soft shell crab and unagi hand rolls. The hand rolls were good, possibly heightened by our long hiatus from Japanese cuisine. Each bite was a mix of crisp…

    For an early dinner we had Argentinian street food El Fogón De Don Pedro. Love their authentic flavors and warm ambiance.

Each bite was a blend of cheesy goodness and the robust flavor of Argentinian…

It’s sweet, refreshing, and carries a distinctively comforting taste. When blended into a latte, horchata adds a creamy, cinnamon-infused twist to the classic coffee. The carrot cake…

  • Gong Cha in Coyoacán

    Gong Cha in Coyoacán

    Found Gong Cha in Coyoacán, we hoped to try the unique mole boba tea, perhaps a specialty seen in Oaxaca. Unfortunately, it wasn’t available. We settled for the regular boba tea, which tasted quite normal. There’re a bunch of Gong Cha’s around. They taste like the regular boba tea. Please skip.

  • Rellenos Churros with Chocolate

    Rellenos Churros with Chocolate

    We went to Churreria General de la Republica for churros. The relleno churro, while really well-made, was overwhelmingly sweet for our tastes. The rich chocolate filling, combined with the sugary dough of the churro, created a dessert that might be way too sweet. They also offered a variety of ice creams and different syrups, each…

  • Chilaquiles at Coyoacan Market

    Chilaquiles at Coyoacan Market

    We headed to the Coyoacan Market for breakfast. This stall is Trinidad Ritual de Sabores. I heard their tacos are really good but went for the chilaquiles instead. A cup of chocolate, the cup is so cute. Personally I prefer the chocolate thicker with milk. The chilaquiles with Barbacoa de Picanha is really good though.…
