Vitamin T: Torta Hunt

The gloomy and rainy Sunday this weekend was brightened by the new discoveries. Following the Travesias Magazine we made our way to Colima 256, a lovely Roma Norte mansion hosting a “straight from the garden to your table” restaurant Huset, Poni Ministore, Yoga Center, “Pretty Bitches” Beauty Saloon, and finally, Homie Cafe. A great place for bookworms ,…

Friday chaos

Sometimes, when getting the morning bus to work  I feel like together with the bus drivet and the other passengers we are not just commuting, getting from one place to another, but fighting our way through the city. I once used to love Reforma Avenue when i first dicovered it, the Champs Elysees of Mexico….

Mother’s Day in Mexico

Yesterday, I have lived yet another festive day in Mexico: Mother’s Day. From the early morning I could already notice the signs that this day was truly special, like a cute card hang on the wall at the entrance (I am not sure if the author was an adult or a kid??) wishing “all the…

Oaxaca: Foodies

    Oaxacan cuisine is one of the most famous and recognized nationally. In Mexico City, there are countless Oaxacan restaurants and pop-up stands which just turn on the appetite for an OAX gastro trip.  My first time trying Oaxacan cuisine was in Las Tlayudas , where all the traditional goodies are served such as guacamole with…

Tequila, Jalisco

Tequila.  Yeah, it´s a town in Mexico 🙂 And this is where everything started!  

A taco that changed my life

Being a veggie in Mexico is not hard at all (see: veggie@mex ), however sometimes you´re really missing out on the big tastes. In the case of taco al pastor, it goes beyond just tasting it. It´s about understanding a massive huge bit of Mexican culture, and the big deal behind the signs ¨ricos tacos al pastor¨ (delicious tacos al…

Guadalajara, Jalisco

After getting the car all fixed and having arranged another co-pilot we decided to hit the road again but this time heading to one of the biggest cities in mexico –Guadalajara. I have heard so many good things about GDL before: that the people are beautiful, that the city is boasting in designy and cool…

Puebleando@ Tepoztlán

I love Tepoz!! Definitely one of my favorite places in Mexico, has everything to make you happy and to make you come back.  For the start, you can get your workout (feels like a squat challenge combined with some good cardio) climbing in the natural reserve of Tepozteco, and trust me your sweat will be rewarded…

Puebleando@ Huamantla, Tlaxcala

Huamantla is one of the 83 Mexican  “magical towns”, a term and an initiative created by the Secretary of Tourism in 2001 to both boost the tourism and acknowledge the cultural heritage of each of the towns. Huamantla itself seemed pretty random, another little square, cathedral, market.   What seemed to be the biggest “attraction” was…

Mariachis+the ultimate playlist/ Garibaldi, Mexico City

Last Friday one of my “mexican dreams” came true when along with a group of friends we decided to start the weekend off by visiting one of the most emblematic spots in the City- Garibaldi. The square is full of mariachis waiting on being asked to play a song- or a full concierto. Although at the…

Puebleando@ Tlaxcala, Hacienda de Soltepec

Following the list of haciendas (country estates) and pueblos màgicos (“magical towns”), we decided to make Tlaxcala our next destination.   Number 9 from the list of haciendas, the estate of Soltepec, is literally in the middle of nowhere, on the way to the town of Huamantla. Surrounded by dried corn fields, agave plants and cactuses, with a volcano Malinche overlooking the countryside… It is probably the…
