Mexico City has turned into a major dining destination

Can't Post | Private Reply
Mexico City's dining scene is exploding.
With award-winning restaurants like Enrique Olvera's Pujol and Eduardo Garcia 's Maximo Bistrot, the city's dining options are increasingly gaining international recognition , and eager tourists are taking note.

While the farm-to-table idea is not new in the food world, some higher-end restaurants in Mexico City are beginning to source their ingredients directly from the famed floating gardens of Xochimilco. Sometimes referred to as the "Mexican Venice" for its canals and brightly colored boats, Xochimilco is home to gardens that use ancient cultivation techniques to produce over 2.5 tons of food per month.

Mexico City is the thickly populated, high-height capital of Mexico. It's known for its Templo Mayor (a thirteenth century Aztec sanctuary), the rococo Catedral Metropolitana de México of the Spanish conquistadors and the Palacio Nacional, which houses notable wall paintings by Diego Rivera. These are arranged in and around the Plaza de la Constitución, the huge principle square otherwise called the Zócalo.

When I came back from France on September , I spent several days with friends in Condessa and had some wonderful food in high end restaurants for the same price as some very mediocre restaurants in Paris.
