I've just arrived in the DF for the first time and will be here for the rest of March with 2 chow-friendly adventurous colleagues from Boston & Canada. We are staying in the South of the city, close to Tlalpan, and do not have our own car. I have read about great recs in other parts of the city, and also have been reading this board, but have some specific questions.
In particular we are looking for chow-worthy recs in and around Tlalpan.
What is El Arroyo like?
What other options should we seek out in this area?
Also, can anyone fill me in on El Estribo and whether it is worth seeking out. Finally, what's the buzz on Plaza Garibaldi or would there be better places to take in some mariachi?
I should add that we checked out Los Danzantes in Coyoacan the other night and thought it was great, but by no means are we looking for that standard on a nightly basis, just tasty food.
Thanks for the input!
