So… What did you eat in Mexico City?

My friends know I’m always on the lookout for great food, so one of their first questions when I return from a trip is “What did you eat?” Here are some highlights from my recent Mexico City trip.

Walking into this Jalisco style restaurant, you would swear you were in Mexico. The smells, decorations, customers and staff all add to the image. The food is wonderful, and everyone is very friendly. My friend is a vegetarian, and they even brought him a beautiful bean and cheese burrito for $3.95… And it’s the best birria I’ve had anywhere. I’m now a regular customer, despite the slightly awkward location.
