CDMX, Day 2

La Diana Cazadora de Colón serves a good plate of tacos carnitas. Located across from the Le Méridien hotel (in Mexico City), their 11:00 a.m. lunch was my breakfast, and it did not disappoint. Day 1 in CDMX was great, so I was really looking forward to Day 2.

Lunch was at Casa de Los Azulejos. It’s a popular place, as there was a sizable queue. And while the decor is worth appreciating, you needn’t eat there. The pork and the chicken—in the tacos and enchiladas, respectively—were dry. Since the restaurant is attached to a shopping center, just enter through the shopping center to have a look at the restaurant. Stay for a drink, but don’t eat. The food was mediocre.

Monumento a la Revolutión is as stunning during the day as it is at night. Make sure to take a stroll nearby (it’s located just outside of the Le Méridien).

La Colorada is a drink unique to the Le Méridien hotel. Go there between 5:00-8:00 pm to have this mezcal-infused cocktail mixed with hibiscus syrup, Ancho Reyes (chile liqueur), tajin on the rim, and a red chile pepper lit aflame and then used as a garnish/stir-stick.

Dinner at Café de Tacuba was a good choice. (It was actually so good on Day 1 that it required a second visit.) The ambiance is solid, and so is the food.
