Some advice for your visit to Mexico City:

1.Stuff your face with food; 95% of what you eat will be incredibly good.

2. The places with the best food will also look the shadiest, such as this hole-in-the-wall taco place we entered because we were hangry, where they serve you tacos (USD 0.30 each) out of a huge plastic bag and sauces will make you cry and are served in ice cream containers.

3. Experiment. We didn’t think we would like mango slices with chilli, lime juice, and salt, but it was amazing. Also, street food: be daring. Yes, it might glue you to the toilet, but so will tap water in Mexico. You’re not safe, so why not have good food anyway?

4. The answer to Picante? is always Sí.

5. Have margaritas. I had Mexican sangria because I love Spanish sangria, and it was… meh. I also had michelada (beer with tomato juice and hot sauce) and it was like a sour cold soup. With alcohol. Not bad, but that margarita is still calling my name.

6. Don’t discount breakfast. Just because so much great Mexican food is savoury, it doesn’t mean sweets are not good. Horchata (a rice-based drink) is the absolute best and I wish I could bathe in it.

  1. Non sono mai stata in Messico, ma ci andrei anche solo per il cibo, dev’essere spettacolare. L’unica cosa che forse non avrei provato è il mango…
