Where we stayed: St. Regis, Mexico City
A few weeks ago, Mark and I ventured over to Mexico City for a quick weekend adventure. We had never been before but the quick flight and delectable bites were too exciting to not explore. Thrilled and eager to experience the new cuisine, scapes, and culture, we hit the ground running to maximize our quick two-day trip. Our recent tequila tasting in Arizona definitely helped prepare our pallet for some of the bold flavors of mescal and tequila, which are the classic spirits of Mexico.
Mexico City is full of life, with every street and building bursting with character and color. I fell in love with the city's architecture, which is a perfect blend of urban and old world European. The city streets were always busy, filled with families, tourists, and street vendors, enjoying a sunny afternoon is the city. Mexico City was always bustling, and energetic, even late into the night!
We spent some time walking through Paseo de la Reforma, admiring the fountains, landmarks, and street vendors. We came across the most vibrant outdoor market selling everything from chicharrónes (fried pork belly) to crispy critters, like crickets! Crickets are a common snack in Mexico, often times found in bowls at the bars. We loved experiencing new cuisine, culture, and yes, even critters!
Mexico City was so fun to explore! The architecture, culture, and exciting buzz of the city - we couldn't get enough. Traveling to the city was so easy and a return trip will definitely be in our future.
I can't wait to share some of our favorite bites in Mexico City! Although our time in the city was short, we made the most of the flavors and food! We dinned at not only the best restaurants in Mexico, but also top in the world. Stay tuned for more posts about our best bites in Mexico!
Have you been to Mexico City? What should we see next time we go (which I hope is soon)? I would love some suggestions in the comment section.
