Format: Paperback
As a cultural/culinary tour guide in Mexico City I have depended on my own notes and various other sources for my information ([...]).
Now it's all in one small but BIG book.
For Mexico City aficionados, at last a comprehensive guide to eating out in the D.F. ( Distrito Federal) . With an insiders knowledge Nicolas Gilman takes you from street food to Alta Cocina Mexicana. Everything you need including maps, current phone numbers and street directions. You can't get lost, you won't be disappointed!

We've been waiting for this one for years...a guide for foodies who want REAL Mexican food in Mexico. I's a one-of-a-kind and a must for visitors to the capital.

Perfect book if you want to try all the great food in the city. We used quite a few recommendations from this book and was definitely surprised by how good the places were. Highly recommend it.

A good food focused guide but I would have liked more general info on MEX food and more pictures and more colour.

Everyone likes a bit of food porn to increase the anticipation
