1. Maximo - in Roma Norte
Eating here was the best thing I did with my ten days in D.F.
|Go for mezcal, mole and meeting new people|
Fast and Easy:
1. Tres Galeanos - in Roma Norte (Obregon y Jalapa):
Everything was so delicious and fun.
2. Tacos los Parados in Roma Norte (Baja California y Monterey):
1. Patisserie Dominique (Chiapas between Medellin and Monterrey):
|The berry rojas (red) tort was amazing and the perfect size.|
2. Cafe Especialidad in Roma Norte (Queretaro y Orizaba):
If you want good espresso in Roma.
Mostly because it's cool inside and it's where William Burroughs shot his wife in the face.
4. Starbucks (This one was at Orizaba y Chihuaha, but there are a few other locations), just to see the differences.
1. Neveria Roxy:
|Mamey ice cream - 18 pesos ($1.37) for this cup (cones available too). I like these same serving sizes. It's like 3/5 cup. I'd never tasted anything like it.|
Things to do:
1. If you're in the mood for a slammin' dance club, ask someone where Patrick Miller is.
|Fight, fight, fight!|
2. Go to the lesbian club Lisptick.
|This happens, but it's also great for dancing and flirting and workin' on your Spanish :]|
3. Definitely take a bus out to Teotihuacan:
4. Watch a movie at the theatre in Spanish without subtitles, especially if your Spanish isn't great.
5. Palacio de Bellas Artes, Palacio Nacional, and all the other stuff you feel like in Zocalo square:
|The cool part about the Palacio Nacional is the huge amount of Diego Rivera mural.|
|It never stopped being creepy that there were policia with huge guns everywhere.|
|Among the many, many things being peddled by the stadium-walkers (beers, waters, Lucho Libre dolls, Lucho Libre belts, etc). were those Instant Noodle cups.|
Be warned, though, that the restrooms there were like animal stalls. Mostly no
seat lids and no tp at all. You have to get a paper towel by the sink beforehand.
