What to do Sunday Evenings in Mexico City

Sunday evenings are notorious for being a tricky time to find great food spots in Mexico City. Most restaurants and food businesses tend to shut their doors early, leaving visitors and locals a bit lost and disappointed.

It’s easy to understand why this happens, in Mexico City many people prefer to stay at home on Sunday evenings, spending time with family or winding down after a busy weekend and getting ready for Monday. In general, there’s less demand for dining out than on other days of the week.

However, this doesn’t mean that you have to settle for mediocre food just because it’s Sunday evening! There are still plenty of options if you know where to look.

Whether you’re craving something traditional Mexican cuisine or international fare, there are options available throughout the city. So don’t let the limitations discourage you from having an amazing meal.

The list is divided in 3 sections:

  • Restaurants, food joints & bars.
  • Tacos.
  • A few parties as a bonus.

Restaurants, Food joints & Bars


Monterrey 194

One of the places I’ve visited the most since it opened its doors. Totally worth the wait if there happens to be any. The daiquiris are a must, their Thai street food is mind blowing and it¡s all topped off by their incredibly good vinyl music selection.

Cafe de Nadie

Chihuahua 135

An outstanding spot to do some day drinking while listening to beautifully curated vinyl music Get their Tijuanita drink, a clamato base with mezcal and a beer and their french fries!

Esquina Común

Remember this is a reservation-only restaurant so plan your visit ahead of time. Ana and Carlos will receive you in their cozy rooftop with an ever-changing menu, natural wine selection and artisanal mezcales.

Chinese-Mexican food Mexicali style. Portions are perfect to share and their 5 spice chocolate cake for dessert is delicious. Enjoy the champagne style cooler when ordering a 1lt beer bottle.

This Narvarte gem is not as far away from the Roma-Condesa area as it seems. Sunday night is the best day to pay this Tacos al Pastor temple a visit.

Even though it’s a big chain, I still like this Al Pastor as it’s one of the few using charcoal for the cooking spit.
