Restaurantes Doctores

The Hidalgo Market is known for selling electric devices, but you can also find a delicious sea food place. You can’t leave without trying their fish empanadas, filled to the brim and blazing hot, or one of Mexico’s freshest ceviches.

Kin Shake

Restaurantes Zona Metropolitana

Best of both worlds can be found in one of their maki-rolls. Try them with crunchy chapulines or a piece of chicken with mole. Also, order nigiri, made with only the freshest of fish.


Dolce Amore Ristorante

Restaurantes Tlalpan Centro

Life is Beautiful meets bohemia in the center of Tlalpan neighbourhood. Portofino fried calamari with arrabiata and tartar sauce are just like a delightful opera.

Tintico Café

Restaurantes Colombiana Cuauhtémoc

A round-trip to Colombia awaits in every dish. Tintico is a charming surprise, hidden in downtown Mexico City. Coffee, though, comes with a warning: there’s no better cup of coffee in the world.


Cochinita Power

Restaurantes San Rafael

Their cochinita (pure pork goodness) is juicy and tender, perfect in tortas, tacos, panuchos and yes, even burgers and chilaquiles. Try the lime soup, grandpa’s favorite.

123 is both a gastronomic and a visual delight. Its Asian cuisine inspired dishes seem to comply with the rule of mixing every possible color and ingredient, a rule that also applies to the decoration around, crafted with salvaged materials.
