The culinary scene in Mexico City is explosive and truly offers something for everyone. From the wide variety of very affordable street food vendors to fresh produce markets to urban, international restaurants, you’ll never run out of places to eat in Mexico City. My work in the advertisement industry allows me to travel a lot, but I always look forward to coming home again. My favourite thing about street food in Mexico City is how it has evolved from food traditionally cooked in poorer communities to the diverse culture it accommodates nowadays, and how you can find anything ranging from simple, traditional Mexican dishes to gourmet cuisine. Here are my recommendations for 10 must-try street foods in Mexico City to really experience eating like a local.
