Mexico City – Day 1

We got into MX late afternoon and found our place in Condesa.  We walked around in the evening and had al pastor tacos at El Tizonchito where they say the el pastor was first invented. When you sit down, they bring you a bunch of salsas and refried beans and chips. Yum. Of course the tacos were good too.  The next day we went on a food tour with a culinary instructor in the Polanco neighborhood.  Polanco used to be where the rich city dwellers had their country homes but as the city grew, Polanco became part of the city is now one of the nicest neighborhoods in Mexico City. We tasted a variety of moles, escaveches, tacos, mezcal, chocolates and learned about the making of each food.  After our final stop where we had mamey ice cream, we went to the Museo Soumaya- museum of gazillionaire Carlos Slim. That night we were craving more mole so we went to a place called Yuban- ugh- tourist trap- but luckily the only disappointing meal of our trip.
