Hola from Mexico! I'm spending the coming week in Mexico City for work and had a dig around a few favourite blogs to create a little itinerary. These are a few of the places I'm looking forward to visiting.
Celeste | A concept store that offers unique and unusual objects from around the world, antique, modern and contemporary, including books, music, fossils, jewelry, household items, stationary and office supplies, hats, lingerie, cigars, orchids, fine and rare handcrafts, antiques, contemporary design elements, taxidermy and silver.
Mercado de Artesanias Ciudadela | The handmade crafts market for me to buy lots and lots of bright bowls and cushion covers and skulls!
Pujol | Contemporary take on traditional Mexican cuisine - this place is a lauded five star spot that does quite delicate versions of the staples we know and love.
Contramar | I read about this spot on Joanna Williams' (wonderful, colorful and inspiring) blog Keep Feeling Fascination. Tuna sashimi and crab tostadas!
El Parnita | Snacky food in Roma: tacos, tortas, tlacoyas, simple and traditional street-style food. Salsas and shrimp tacos sound amazing.
Chocolatería Mamá Sarita | A cozy chocolatería serves delicious traditional mexican hot chocolate in giant steaming natural ceramic mugs.
Charro | On the ceiling of this bar, dried violets form intricate swirls above cocktail sipping clientele. Well-executed Mexican cuisine, with a focus on products from Ensenada.
Museo de Antropología | Mexico’s world famous Anthropology Museum is housed in spectacular architecture and contains an enormous collection.
Frida Kahlo's House | The brightly colored home of Frida.
Museo de Artes | Mexico's national modern art museum.
