Mexican Restaurant
“AMAZING PLACE & Good food. In the open-air courtyard of the 17th-century Downtown Mexico Hotel sits the charming Azul Historico, potentially one of the best restaurants in the city. With tall spindly trees, rough-hewn tables, and women making tortillas by hand in the corner, it's a pleasant place for a relaxing late lunch while in the Historic Center. Traditional Mexican food, like spicy and chile-laden "mole negro de oaxaca" is legendary, while the "cochinita pibil" is a classic. There are no wild flourishes here, just well-executed, elegant plates, try the enchiladas in a mild chipotle sauce filled with hibiscus flowers, the same ones used to make the tangy Jamaica drink.”

Mexican Restaurant
“Lalo! is a must for breakfast, there are Mexican dishes like chilaquiles en salsa verde and chorizo with eggs, as well as familiar brunch plates like French toast with whipped cream and berries, and a Croque Monsieur. If you've ever wanted to try escamoles (ant larvae), this is a good place to do so. Sautéed in butter, folded into scrambled eggs, then served in a taco with chunks of avocado, they're approachable and almost unnoticeable.”

La comida que se ofrece es sencilla pero con un giro gourmet que baja del pedestal la alta cocina y la vuelve cotidiana y accesible.Delirio es una especie de cafetería-bistrot semi self-service, con una estética informal pero sofisticada”
