Things to Do in Mexico City
To add the extensive ‘things to do in…’ series we seem to have going on, I thought I would add to it and give you my Things to Do in Mexico City – enjoy!
One of my favourite things about Mexico is the food!
I could quite literally eat my way around Mexico City. I actually tried on my last trip there after doing a 5 day water fast, I wanted ALL the tacos and guacamole!!
I am very fortunate to have a very close friend who lives in Mexico City and has put together a list of her top rated restaurants which I have popped below.
One of my favourites we went to in Mexico City was Rosa Negra.
Upmarket but super chilled.
You head there in the mid afternoon, and end up staying into the evening, and with the incredible food there, you don’t really want to leave.
Each dish that comes to the table looking and tasting better than the last!!!
Their house bread, similar to a yorkshire pudding if you’re English, with gruyere cheese and truffle oil is mouthwatering!!
We then followed that up with a healthy serving of guac and chips, along with the red snapper cerviche and tuna tostadas- divine!!!
My mouth is actually watering as I type!
Then came the soft shell crab tacos and the grilled octopus!
When I said it just keeps getting better and better I was not joking!!
Then, when you think you really can’t eat anymore, they bring out the sharing desert and a chocolate bomb!!!
My plan was to just eat the fruit from the platter but it was all too inviting I HAD to try a spoonful of everything as it looked too good to pass up!
The final addition, before cocktails (which are all as delicious as the food!) was a traditional mexican coffee, shaken over ice with liquor at your table!
The service is second to none and the presentation and attention to detail really made this restaurant an experience.
I can’t recommend it enough!!

If you have time on your visit to Mexico City, I would add a few days if you can to head to Puerta Vallarta.
It’s a short plane ride from Mexico city but well worth it if you are the kind of person who enjoys a little beach life.
Our friend took us to a little island which looked like you couldn’t get on it, but then you anchor your boat, and then you swim under the rocks to reveal a hidden beach inside this little island.
We had to negotiate and pay for a permit as were on a private boat, but there were other boats with small excursions also heading to the island.
It is very much worth the trip, like something out of a film!
The seafood is incredible and super fresh, and a really refreshing change to city life.
AMAZING restaurants in Polanco, Mexico City:
– Buena Barra
– Rosa Negra
Healthy/Vegan Friendly Places:
– Iwashi (“some of the best sushi I’ve ever had IN MY LIFE”- Dr D) – Only seats 15 people at a time, so very intimate!
– Oja de Agua (very cute outside cafe in Polanco)
** All of these are in Polanco, but there are other amazing places in Roma and Condessa definitely worth exploring.
