We are leaving on Mon. Jan. 14th for a two-week trip through Mexico City, Oaxaca, and Puebla. Needless to say, I'm very excited for my first trip to Mexico (going to TJ w/ college buddies doesn't count)! The archives have been immensely helpful, but I have some specific questions:
1. What are some good eateries between the Alameda Central and Zocalo areas, mainly for lunch, dinner, and snacks? We aren't big breakfast people but enjoy good coffee and light pastries/bread in the morning. I mainly do not want to fall into bad tourist traps around the main sites.
2. What are your favorite eateries in Puebla? I jotted down a few notes: Meson de la Sacrista; cemita in the mercado; Camino Real; Las Ranas for al pastor.
If you have any suggestions for Oaxaca, please add them to this ongoing thread:
I already have a pretty good handle on the restaurants around Polanco, Condesa, Roma, and Coyoacan in the DF that I want to visit, but please add any tips you think would be useful. Thanks so much for your help, and I'll be sure to report back!
