Restaurants and Eating Out in Mexico City
Visitors to Mexico City can gorge themselves to their hearts' content on the wide array of food choices. Food definitely ranks among the top on Mexico City's long list of attractions. Districts particularly frequented by food lovers are Polanco, Condesa, Centro and Sante Fe, among many others.

The flaming appeal of Mexican food is known the world over, and Mexico City is an ideal place to experience first hand the scrumptious Mexican food, ranging from salsa dips, chilli, tacos, nachos and burritos. You have an endless list of Mexican restaurants to choose from. However, restaurants such as El Cardenal, Los Girasoles, Izote and Café Tacuba have been featured many times both locally and internationally for their tantalizing cuisine. Restaurants such as Hacienda de los Morales and Antigua Hacienda de Tlalpan also offer interesting dining experiences as they are actually ranches which have been converted into restaurants.

For those who want a more heartland take on Mexican food, look out for the street hawkers, or Puestos, who also sell Mexican fare. These are equally tasty, however, do take note that the level of hygiene varies from hawker to hawker and should be something you look out for before purchasing your snack.

By far, Mexican food is not the only dining option you have. Mexico City features a commendable range of cuisine from all over the world, ensuring that you will be even more spoilt for choice when it comes to mealtime. The French and Spanish bakeries are very popular in Mexico City, featuring both French and Spanish type baked goodies as well as traditional Mexican pastries. El Globo and Panaderia Madrid are two such bakeries. With their wide range of freshly baked pastries and the comfortable smell of baking bread wafting through their shops, your mouth will water as soon as you step into one of their many outlets.

Asian food is another dining option that makes a welcome break from the traditional Mexican fare, while still retaining the spiciness and exotic nature of the local cuisine. There are many Asian food restaurants that offer tasty food options at reasonable prices. Chinese, Korean, Indian, Thai, Malay or Japanese... You name it and there will be a restaurant in Mexico City catering to it. The number of Asian restaurants in Mexico City has been increasing in recent years, so it should be no trouble finding one that suits what your palate is craving for at that moment in time.

You are certain to never find yourself hungry in Mexico City. If you do get abit tired of the local fare, then never fear, as there are many American fast-food options also available, such as McDonalds, Pizza Hut, KFC, Burger King and many more. Truly, there really is something for everyone whatever their tastes and whatever time of the day or week it is.
