Previously I’ve written about The Various Eats in Mexico City Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. Mexican food is my all-time favorite food in the world and what better way than to experience the authenticity in Mexico City.

I was starving early in the morning when I was exploring Xochimilco until I saw a taco stand on the street.
I saw that there was something soup-like cooking in a pot and I wanted to try that out.
I believe it was a beef tripe kind of dish which was topped with onions and oregano. It went well with freshly made homemade corn tortillas.
My friend Gaby (who lives in Mexico City) drove me to a restaurant in Coyoacan called Michoacanisimo which specializes in Birra (Mexican Goat and Chile Stew).
The Birria was delicious and went great with the slices of fresh avocado, onions, and cilantro.
I washed it down with a nice cold horchata drink.
Afterwards, we went to Estacion 19 Cervecentro which is a shop that specializes in made to order beer cocktail concoctions. You choose a beer, flavor and any add-in toppings you might want.
I had a Corona mixed with mango juice, lime, hot sauce, and gummy bears which is kind of like a michelada without tomato juice. Every drink was made in a styrofoam “to-go” cup and placed over with a black plastic bag. The purpose of the wooden stick was to poke at the gummy bears which were at the bottom of the drink. It was delicious and I definitely wouldn’t have known about this if it weren’t for my friend Gaby.
My friend Sven (who flew in from Brussels) and I had dinner one night at Taquitos Frontera in Colonia Roma which was right across the street from the Four Points by Sheraton Colonia Roma Mexico City hotel.
The one thing I love about restaurants in Mexico City is that they place a large selection of various salsas on the table.
I had some chicken tacos with salsa which was delicious.
I washed it down with an ice cold cup of horchata.
Sven and I were not done with our evening as we took a stroll of Mexico City by night and we had some delicious tacos al pastor from a street cart.
We were not done yet as we ended our night at another taco shop called Tacontento in the Zona Rosa neighborhood for a midnight snack. We ordered tacos and washed it down with horchata.
