Mexico City: Food & Drink

Pasillo De Humo – 2nd Floor – has a very local feeling. Great Mexican food and very reasonable and really good margaritas.

Parian Condesa Rest Comida Yucateca La Tradicion – is on the first floor below Pasillo De Humo and it has 8 food counters where you can grab 8 different types of food and then sit at a table either inside or outside. Seafood, Japanese, Mexican, Deli, Beef or a sampling of the many types of cuisines offerred. Very good and really reasonable. Pasillo D H takes reservations but the downstairs place is walk in only.

Pujol – one of the most expensive places in town. A very romantic but very pricey place full of Gringo’s. The meal will likely cost between $150 to $200 per person but we thought it was well worth it.
