In recent years, Mexico City has emerged as a major destination for culinary travellers, as Mexican chefs win the sort of praise formerly reserved for their counterparts in New York and Paris. Both fancy and humble eateries cook up an unrivaled range of fare, from traditional regional Mexican dishes to contemporary cuisine fusing European and Asian styles with Mexican ingredients. Whether you’re looking for a soulful street stand serving up divine tacos or an exclusive restaurant with international acclaim, the Mexican capital is the epicentre of all things food. The Polanco neighborhood is home to the signature restaurants of several of Mexico City’s internationally hot chefs. The Condesa and the Roma neighborhoods have become hubs of the eating-out scene, with dozens of informal bistros and cafes. The historic centre is a great place to enjoy traditional Mexican dishes in elegant, refurbished colonial buildings.
