El Califa is a well-oiled taco machine and open until 4am every day. Our favorite taco here is the al pastor, but you really can’t go wrong. If you’re on a quest to eat as many tacos as possible during your time in Mexico City, you should know this is a one-minute walk from one of El Farolito’s many locations, too.

Mexico City has plenty of sushi, but Kyo is our favorite place to get it. There are only 13 seats in the restaurant, so be sure to make a reservation.
Havre 77 in Juarez has a menu of French classics and is a good spot to hang out when you need a break from Mexican food.
