Think of a Mexican version of an omakase: you sit down and let them know about any food restriction and get ready to see a parade of amazing corn-based dishes made with fresh & seasonal ingredients. Always amazing and surprising dishes and always a traditional mexican beverage makes an appearance (think mezcal, tepache or pulque).
Both the Juarez location and the tiny spot in Roma, are filled with incredible pastries and outstanding coffee. Their concha and kouign-aman are to die for. Also, their avo toast with homemade kimchi is absolutely delicious as well as their famous sticky rice with cacao nibs and homemade yogur and their chilaquiles.
There’s a really big chance you’ll find me sitting there with my laptop on any given day.
If you’re more in a white table cloth mood this is always a great option. They have most typical Mexican dishes available like enchiladas, huevos rancheros, chilaquiles, enmoladas and all of them are an accurate representation of flavors and presentation.
Be sure to try their conchas with nata (clotted cream) along with some hot chocolate, turn the pastry upside down, slathere some of the creamy goodness and then dip in the chocolate. Can’t go wrong.
A couple of musicians in the corner, the smell of wood burning and the taste of their sweet cafe de olla, this is an absolute Mexico City staple.
They start serving food since really early mornings (around 6:30am) and by 10am everything will be totally gone. They have a different selection of stews that change daily and include beef in pasilla chili, pork cracking in green sauce, egg stews and chile relleno.
But the main star here will always be the huevos tirados (dropped eggs), scrambled and then tossed around the pan along with some black refried beans and an incredible amount of their secret ingredient: lard.
Cute little spot right next to one of the most famous spots in Roma.
Music is really chill, menu is small but sweet and their pastries are ever changing but always indulging.
Everything here feels like real comfort food always made with the best and freshest ingredients. Try their chamomile oatmeal, their scones with jam and butter, or their amazing duck eggs with roasted tomatoes and sourdough bread.
A very new addition to the Condesa neighborhood is this Juarez staple. Farmacia Internacional has arrived to delight us with their always comforting and delicious menu and cozy atmosphere.
Their homemade pop tarts (and all their pastries for that matter) are reason enough to give this spot a try but their egg in a jar served with mash potatoes and a proper amount of butter will make you fall head over heels for this spot.
