I’m stopping over in el DF on my way to the Mayan highlands, staying in Colonia San Rafael by the Metrobus Reforma, and excited to sample tasty treats, tanto chilango como de las provincias. No destination too obscure and no meat too organy. The internet has given me these ideas:

Thursday night: I will need innards and late night taco ambience. Perhaps Los Cocuyos in el centro or El Borrego Viudo in Tacubaya.

Friday culinary hike to Colonia Roma (El Hidalguense for barbacoa or Ricos Tacos de Guisado at Tlaxcala y Chilpancingo) and then along Calle López (Ricos Tacos de Toluca for chorizo and head cheese) to Mercado San Juan. On towards the centro to sample blue corn tlacoyos from the Poblanas across from San Miguel Church, Ricos Tacos de Mixiote Estilo Tulancingo or just drink and eat away the afternoon in Cantina La Mascota or Dos Naciones. More late night tacos: maybe El Huequito or El Tizoncito for adobada.

Saturday, perhaps start with sit-down at Fonda Margarita in Tlacoquemecatl del Valle, then hike through Viveros to Coyoacán for Tamales el Pino and the market for tostadas or quesadillas and an agua fresca. Maybe wander the Mercado Medellín Christmas market in Roma that night. Any recommendations around there?

Other highly recommended tasty treats? Is there some more far flung working class burg with awesome weekend food and ambience that I should check out? A somewhat rowdy bar for Saturday night cultural exchange?

Thanks for your insights!
