Mexico City lunch eats! One of the trickiest meals for a Celiac while travelling is lunch, yet these CDMX eats don’t disappoint. Check out these three places and you’ll be one happy traveller!
Why is lunch so hard while travelling? For me, it’s because our location changes from day-to-day. For breakfast, our starting point is the hotel, so it’s easy to navigate. Same with dinner, after a day of sightseeing we usually make our way back to the hotel before heading out for dinner. So the travel time to get to a great dinner spot isn’t much of a concern. In the middle of the day, however, if we’re in CDMX’s historical district, we might get hungry and not want to travel too far for some eats. With that, I usually plan in advance and on this trip our go to place was el huequito.
Mexico City Lunch Eats
First up, we had 3 great lunches at the Mexico City Grand Prix. Here is the warm corn salad, Bryce’s taquitos and some churros.
On the Monday and Tuesday we had lunch at the little hole (el huequito). We originally planned to check out the Anthony Bourdain made famous Los Cocuyos Taqueria, however, the menu didn’t look that great to us, so we skipped it.
About a block away we found the little hole with just as many people out front. Plus, the inside was packed, too. Oh, and inside you get to watch 90’s Mexican music videos – so perfect.
My favourite part about this restaurant is not only the menu (it’s online and easily marked with GF) but also the tower of sauces and limes!
On our first visit we ordered way, way too much food – but it was so good.
We had tacos, quesadillas, and queso fundido – the sauces were such a flavourful addition. I could eat tacos every day.
On Wednesday we visited the El Palacio De Los Palacios and the Antara Fashion Hall de Polanco for some shopping and had lunch in the food court. This salad place is so good – fresh and delicious!
Overall, our favourite is for sure el huequito – if you’re ever in Mexico City, be sure to check it out. We found out on our second last night that there was a location right around the corner from our Hotel Emporio. This place had so much takeaway leaving, it was fun to watch the kitchen.
Okay, thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy some Mexico City lunch eats soon.
