So I'm going to Mexico City for the first time next week and I feel overwhelmed by the choices. For a beginner in Mexico City could someone recommend an excellent primer on places that I shouldn't miss. I'm not really looking at going to the high-end restaurants for budget reasons but if someone knows of a steal please let me know.
Also, where is the best place to get a cup of steaming chocolate?
Thanks so much for your help!
Also, I'm staying near the US Embassy, so near the Pink Zone. But have no problem going to other parts of the city . . .
