Amazing drinks, food and view: Mezquite Bar (22. August 2018)

The Mezquite Bar was another great find from the book ‘Where Chefs Eat‘. The place is not only serving great drinks and offers a marvelous view, it also serves tasty local dishes like the “Taco de Chapulin (con costra de quesillo, chapulines y guacamole, sobre tortilla de maíz)” (35 MXN) which is basically a taco […]

Regular airport food – not recommended: Alfa Bar & Restaurante (22. August 2018)

Given I was starving before taking my flight to Oaxaca, I decided to eat something in the airport. Well, there aren’t too many options (and especially not too many appealing options) in the Terminal 2 of MEX airport. The Alfa Bar & Restaurante seemed like a decent solution. So, I went for the “Tacos al […]

Good but not on my list of the 50 Best restaurants: Restaurant Nicos (21. August 2018)

Good but not on my list of the 50 Best restaurants: Restaurant Nicos (21. August 2018)

The Restaurant Nicos is No. 29 of the 50 Best Restaurants in Latin America – given I’ve tried a couple, my expectations were quite high. Frankly speaking, they haven’t really been fulfilled though. The “bread wagon” where you get to pick which breads you want, is nice. However, the waitress did not manage to serve […]

Huge maggots and scorpion – a unique experience: Restaurant La Casa de los Tacos (20. August 2018)

I always wanted to pay a visit to Coyacan as it is the ‘artsy’ area of CDMX. Given, I had no clue which restaurant to visit, I googled ‘best restaurant in Coyacan’ and the La Casa de los Tacos is the one which showed up. So, time to go there. Once I arrived there I […]

Perfect for an extensive Sunday brunch in Chapultepec: Restaurant El Lago (19. August 2018)

I always liked to go to Chapultepec as it is somehow ‘the’ green spot in CDMX. So, I was looking for a nice restaurant in the park – and the El Lago is actually quite a great place. For only 690 MXN you get access to the brunch buffet – and it’s worth it. There […]

Getting spoiled with a feast in First Class: LH498 FRA – MEX (18. August 2018)

Getting spoiled with a feast in First Class: LH498 FRA – MEX (18. August 2018)

Once you’ve arrived to your seat you’re immediately taken care of very well. It all starts with a glass of champagne and the mandatory nuts. Shortly after, even before take off, you’re served a small “crab salad” which is surprisingly good to begin. Once you’re up in the air and have reached cruising altitude, you […]

Good to stuff your tummy – not for more though: Restaurant Los Bisquets Bisquets Obregón (22. April 2017)

I have been to Los Bisquets Bisquetss Obregón a couple of years ago and I remembered the place immediately when I walked in. Simple but it serves the purpose, i.e. you get decent food for a decent price. However, the atmosphere is rather down to earth at the edge of being unpleasant – the service […]

Real Mexican Mariachi experience: Restaurant El Salón Tenampa (14. April 2017)

Given I had failed so far to see Mariachis live, it was about time to fill this gap. So, when you’re in Mexico City, you should definitely go to the Plaza Garibaldi where all the Mariachis are and order a mariachi song for you. Or, you enter one of the many establishments around the square […]
