Have you ever been to Mexico City? Have you ever explored more than Cancun or Cabo? If you haven’t and you’d love to visit the 6th biggest city in the world, then you have come to the best blog post.
Mexico City is full of culture, great food and a long list of things to do and visit. So in this blog post, I am going to share with you my top 5 things to do, where to stay and where to eat the best vegan food.
Where to stay
My top area to stay at and feel like a local is La Condesa. This neighborhood is well known for its hip restaurants, bars, and green areas. It is full of international food, art and a lot of culture. It is only 4 km away from Centro Histórico, and close to Parque México and Parque España.
I recommend staying at The Local Way. They offer to lodge in the best areas of the city, and their homes are designed for travelers looking for something more than just a place to stay, making you feel like home.
The apartment buildings are safe, with service, concierge, and security 24/7. As well they are committed to showcase and support Mexican culture, by decorating the apartment with products from local artists. The apartments are eco-friendly and come with a compost bin and water filters to avoid plastic.
I had the pleasure to stay at Mexican Groove apartment a few weeks ago and loved it. My favorite part was the natural light and colorful details around. As well, it was walking distance from my favorite vegan restaurants.
Where to eat
As a vegan, sometimes people think that visiting countries like Mexico can be an issue, but not in Mexico City. My favorite places are:
Pulpa Amor: More of the typical trendy NYC health bar. Full of smoothies, golden lattes, and activated charcoal waffles. All painted in pink, with an open feel to it, but at a much cheaper price.
Por siempre vegana taquería: The best street tacos you’ll have. It is technically in Roma neighborhood but it is a seven-minute walk from La Condesa, so you have to go!
Los Loosers: Their menu is full of traditional Mexican street food like tlayudas, and traditional Mexican food like aguachile, chiles rellenos, and soups- weird but cool! – You can feel the difference in the quality of the food and ingredients. Everything is made at the moment, so I recommend sharing plates instead of choosing your own, otherwise, you might end up waiting for a while before your plate comes.
